Do tampons really need to be described as "vaginal"?

Just analyzed a paper dealing with imaging an inserted vaginal tampon. Not sure what’s more disturbing: the images I cannot unsee or the fact a tampon is regularly described in medicine as being “vaginal”. No one uses the term “hand glove” or “foot sock”, so why… wait, that’s just one more thing I don’t want to learn.
