Actually, strips of absorbent leather which had to be washed every hour or so, then re-worked so as to soften them. Unless, of course, it was raining, in which case the women said "to heck with it" and just did away with the whole contraption, as rain would wash the blood out of the leather and down their legs anyways.

After that, the leather became cloth, especially absorbent types like wool, which also had to be washed or replaced a couple times a day.
Tampon-like items wer also made out of cloth, and were washed and reused the same way.

So, if you are concerned about filling up the trash cans, why don't you purchase them some cloth pads, and then all you'll have to do is wash handfuls of blood soaked rags every day.

That sounds way easier.
Lol, love it!

I think Republicans should just outlaw having periods altogether.

Figures it would be Democrats to really do something like that, not Republicans.

In recent weeks, the GOP attack on contraceptives and womenís rights has been returning to the legislative tables, and causing a stir among womenís rights activists and media outlets nationwide.
Now it seems that many within the Republican party who strive to ban contraceptive use also see it as a necessity to prohibit the use of tampons, and seek to ban the sales of these and similar products as soon as possible.
Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) recently put together an all male panel for discussion at the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform hearing on the contraceptive coverage rule and excluded women from the conversation. It seems that he is set to establish a similar group of men to discuss the use of tampons within a womanís vagina.
It is unnatural for a woman to insert a foreign object into her body for the sake of stopping the menstrual flow. I, as well as several others seek to eliminate the sales of such objects. Women should let nature take care of itself the way that our Almighty Creator intended. To try to manipulate and control such an occurrence goes against Godís plan for women.
Initial drafts of this new legislation have already been brought before Speaker John Boehner (R-OH), and several other GOP Congressmen. It is likely to come to a vote as early as next month. If passed, tampons will no longer be available to sell or purchase, and women will have to find an alternative means to alleviate menstrual excreta.
Several Democratic Congresspeople are already petitioning in dissent of this new piece of legislation, and will not give up without a fight to preserve a womanís right to take care of her own body as she deems most effective.
OMG this is so funny LOL
Actually this would not surprise me a bit as crazy whacked out as the Republican party has come. They really do want to ban birth control. Have they lost their little minds?

Allow me to educate you a little
a communist, socialist such as Hitler and Mussolini are called progressive , which is what a democrate is, the left is socialist, the right is Republicians, so saying anyone but a democrate is a Hitler or Mussolini has it backwards...

Agreed on Ron yet there is that little pesky thing called the Electoral...? My great gma said God meant for the blood n stuff to exit the body to cleanse it right? So dont tampons stop this process? As a conservative I am disagreement if the whole tampon policy is true. It is up there with abortion. I also disagree with govt being involved with abortion. I dont believe it is right and know it isnt right for any one person to tell another what they can do with their body. The use of the govt to replace real freemarket activity that takes work and ingenuity is completely unconstitutuonal. Skousan's book The Making of America: The Substance and Meaning of the Constitution is an excellent refresher course for some and beginning for others.

MrsWinner? How say you about why America is scum? For the blacks to think the man they voted for purely based on the fact (or not) that Obama is black IS being ignorant. And dont argue this isnt true because MANY blacks admit they voted for Obama based on his color because they felt it may be the only time in their life to put a black man in the White House. Quaint but not smart. In turn I voted against him the 1st time based purely because he is black knowing that blacks would not know how to conduct themselves. And true to course, they dont. They dont understand their black man no more intended to carry water for them than Michelle does for him. No, his marching orders are well above the comprehension of the pundents who voted him in - both black, white, hispanic, Asian and stupid. The President has done nothing to bring America together with solutions for increasing exports that creats jobs, increasing energy production at home that generates jobs and decreases foreign dependency and he refuses to relinquish the governments choke hold on the sovereignty of the states -NONE of these things need color to get the job done.
