I couldn't resist the title and the imagery it invoked. It made me giggle. Why yes, I am 12, why do you ask? Since my Aunt Flo is in town, I thought I would break out the ole soapbox about girly bits, health, and the environment.
Long story short, regular feminine products are bad for you. They're bleached, made of non-biodegradable materials, and fill up our dumps.
The Keeper (rather graphic name, but whatever)
The above two you can only use if you do NOT have a bicornuate uterus.
Glad Rags (Oregon company)
Or if the reusable options are too much for you, even though they save money in the long run, go organic:
I took Pamprin last night for the first time, even though I normally drink water and/or raspberry leaf tea for my severe cramps. It was a regular dose: two pills. Halfway through game I wondered why I felt stoned, until I asked a friend if Pamprin is supposed to knock you out. She said yes.
For a non-Nyquil effect I recommend

Seventh Generation tampons are made with organic cotton and are NOT bleached with chlorine. no pesticides, either. They have recently put out applicator tampons. Heaven!!

I do like 7th Gen, and haven't had a chance to use their feminine products. I will have to make a note to, thanks. :)
