Real Women Menstruation Do You Know What's In Your Tampon?
Manufacturers of tampons are moving toward transparency—proving that when it comes to sexual health, we want to know what's going on in our bodies.
We're constantly paying attention to what we put in our bodies (is that latte organic, dairy-, gluten-, GMO- and fat-free?!)—except there's one thing we put in (quite literally) and likely don't think twice about: our tampons.

Given that menstruation is not the sexiest topic, many women don't think about or discuss their feminine care habits or products with other women," say Kier and Friedman. "We want to empower women to make proactive and informed decisions about what they're putting in their bodies."
As a rule of thumb: If you wouldn't put it near your lips, you probably don't want to put it near your lady bits. Read the labels and look for 100 percent cotton products free of fragrance to keep things au naturale.
