Tampon Problems

The last time I went to the market I allowed myself to be dazzled by the ├╝ber cute packaging on Kotex Tampons. I thought ooh, they’re bright and cheerful, and since getting your period isn’t exactly bright and cheerful I bought a box of them.

Without being overly graphic, I kept having issues. I thought that maybe I was having a particularly heavy month, or that the tampon wasn’t doing it’s job because the string looked like it was involved in a low grade accident.

I’m just wondering what brain trust came up with the idea of a pink string. Do they have any women of childbearing age involved in R&D?
