This is half question half comment, I guess, but I've heard so many stories of people being frantic about being out of tampons/pads/buckets to prevent period catastrophes.
I've never run into this problem, mainly because if Im in a public bathroom, regretfully tampon-less
i just fold some toilet paper in half, tightly roll it in a tampon-y shape, wrap the outside in a sheet to smooth it out and use that!
works in a pinch and i'm worry free for two hours or so, usually.
I was just curious if anyone else has ever done this, or this is only possible because maybe my flow
is unusually light?
(I've never needed anything over a small or regular size, and i've never had leak problems)
