Hey guys this might be kinda awkward, but Ive got a problem.
I have trouble hiding tampons when I’m out and about. All my clothing is tight because I find that more comfortable. Normally I hide them in my bra but it looks weird and isn’t very comfortable.
This might be a little TMI to ask, but I’m struggling for places to hide them in public. Help?

It’s not weird at all to ask this! 🙂 I always carry mine in my purse. Unless your jeans are super tight, the pocket of your jeans might work (especially with a little longer shirt over it).

This may not apply to you if you are in warmer climates, but at school (or most places) I either carry them in the pocket of my light jacket or my purse/drawstring bag.

Hey 🙂 I just put mine in a little tin box (like that http://top-10-list.org/wp-content/uploads/2011/08/Tampon-box.jpg) and carried them around in my bag 🙂 It’s not a perfect solution, but you don’t see that they are tampons and you can easily find them in your bag. (Since I have my menstrual cup, I don’t need tampons any more)

I agree with everything above, or I found to be way better, move to a menstrual cup. they are hard to find outside of Amazon.com in the US but you can leave them in for 12hrs at a time as long as your flow isn’t too heavy, and if its placed correctly you have no worry of leakage. It takes a couple months to get the hang of it, but now I would never go back. Also, they seem spendy but if you take care of it like you are supposed to they can last up to 5yrs. Think of how that ends up benefiting you ($35-40 for 5yrs, as opposed to spending $10ish every month) plus no landfill issues.

Just a suggestion

@Mandi_lee2014
I have tried a menstrual cup. Sort of. My sister uses them and let me try it. It was really painful to try and get it in. When I becomes a little older and maybe become less petite I might try them. If it wasn’t so painful to start with I would but my pain tolerance is minimal at best. But what brand do you use and was it painful at first?

I use LadyCup which is a UK brand that ships to the US. I use the smaller one. I had to learn which fold works for me before it wasn’t uncomfortable to put in or take out (I don’t use the traditional fold, I use a 7 fold) but I would look at forums because your body can handle it, and handle it without it being uncomfortable. Its just a learning curve to it.
