Today, I was changing my tampon in a public toilet. When I threw away the used one and opened a new one, it turned out that it had no thread on it! I took another one out. Again, defective! It was the last one I had with me, and it was the second day of my period. FML

Lots of toilet paper for a makeshift pad until you can get to the store on a break.

You can still use them without the thread girl. They actually make eco friendly ones that dont have threads.

I’m male so i not sure if you can do this. Why don’t you put in the defective one temporarily and just go by new tampons and then change out the good one for the bad one

That's how you get a tampon stuck inside you..

My dude, what exactly do you think the string is for? Like, do you think it's just there for decoration or what?

Toxic Shock Syndrome is a serious issue, and not just a cool name for a thrash metal band. Trademarked, by the way.

You’ve never had a string break and had to pull it out yourself? It’s really not that hard unless it’s completely dry

I’m a female and it’s REALLY not that difficult to get a tampon out without strings. How deep do you people think the vaginal cavity is?

If there’s no string it’s hard to pull out

I’m sure it’s not as difficult as taking out a menstrual cup.

Hi. Man here. I don’t understand a single thing about this post. But I suspect it was a very bad thing.

How does this story end? You’re stringing us along, and that’s knot nice!

You can use tampons without a string. They make them like that. I know a lot of people don’t like them, but it’s better than nothing!

As a horny old lady cashier grinned and said to me when using my credit card with a chip, “Stick it in and leave it!”

Yet another reason I prefer pads over tampons.

Uh. Hello. Have you never walked down a tampon isle? They purposely sell tampons without strings. The brand is O.B. It is NOT that difficult. It does NOT get stuck. And you do NOT need to “give childbirth” to get it out. My goodness people. God forbid you touch around your vagina, just wash your hands afterwards.

Sounds like you might be a dude. O.B. definitely has strings. They are green and coiled at the base of the tampon inside the plastic cover. They don't use an applicator and are smaller to carry. That said, while removing tampons without strings is possible, it's often messy and not fun to attempt in work bathrooms because there will be blood on your hands.
