I'm sorry, but I have another question. Is there any differece between tampax and playtex, or always and kotex. I mean, they are basically the same right, or is there a difference between the two? I'm sorry, I am just curious

Some bits are the same, others are different. Tampax has a slightly different shape than Playtex, and their applicators are made differently. Always and Kotex have slight differences too. Both have slightly different shapes to their pads and other physical differences. One brand uses glue on their wings, the other velcro. There may also be other differences within the processing of the materials for each product.
For some people, the difference is negligible..that is to say, they don't really care what brand they use. Other people are more discerning and will only use one brand. Some people are allergic to something in one brand and have no choice but to use another. And some people prefer other types of menstrual products such as cups (like the Keeper, or Instead), or all cotton tampons or pads (which can be purchased online, or at some health food stores).
