Why do you use tampons?

Today I was about to go take my AP Environmental Science exam, and one of my friends ran up to me, desperate for a pad. When I handed her a tampon instead, she looked terrified and flat out refused. I asked her why, and she said "Because nothing should go up there except..you know." Now, my friend is a very religious person, and flat out refuses to talk to one of my guy friends because he is gay (but that's a different story), but I'm absolutely flummoxed as to why she so vehemently refused to use a tampon. It's better than sitting in a three hour exam with NOTHING, I would think. 

Anyways, my question to y'all is, why do you use/don't use tampons? I understand people using cups and other internal methods of...period stuff (hahah, idk what to call it), but is there any sort of religious/cultural reason behind your choosing not to use them? I probably sound grossly ignorant, but I'm honestly very curious.
