When your on your period.....

and you go to change your pad/tampon do you just throw it in the trash to be exposed or do you roll it up in toilet paper? I think my DH wouldn't like seeing that in the trash. I roll mine in tp then throw it away. and if you don't cover it up does your DH/SO care?

  • I roll them up really good cause then the damn dog will take them out and chew on them, gross but true. I also hate going to a public bathroom and seeing everyones business at the top of the wastebasket! Cover it ladies!

  • I don't always roll up panty liners because they tend to unroll, so instead I make sure I place them face down. Otherwise I roll them up, it is so gross to walk by and see bloody grossness staring at me. lol

  • I roll everything, tampons, pads, panty toilet paper and then throw it away...I think it's so gross to go into a public bathroom and their all over the place and not even covered. Where do you ladies learn your bathroom etiquette? No one wants to see that nastiness.

  • I roll everything up, too. My hubby is always complaining about how fast we go through TP around here, but he lives with 5 females, 3 of which have periods. Duh!

  • I flush tampons and roll pads in TP before putting them in the trash.

  • flushing them stops up your toilet, rollem up and throw them away. My husbands a plumber, how embarrassing an over flowing yard of tp, shit, and used tampons.
