Has anyone else ever wondered about this? (May be a little gross)

Have you ever noticed that the last step of the instructions for using tampons says "Don’t forget to remove the last tampon when your period is finished"? This just doesn't make sense to me. I mean if you don't remove the tampon how do you know you finished your period?

  • And you know the ones who would forget to take the last one out are the ones who arn't going to read the box.

  • I noticed it and I guess it happened before or they wouldnt warn us about it. It would be awful to forget about it for about a week imagine the smell when you did get it out GROSS

  • They have to put stupid things like that on there because someone out in the world has done that, and then tried to sue or something! Like on the blowdryer it says dont use in the bathtub, why would anyone blowdry their hair while in water????

  • LOL, I have not really noticed that before. It has been a long since I needed to use them.

  • Anon, there are plenty of women who go to the ER yearly for a stuck tampon....LOL

    OMG...the instructions on things make me giggle but you know there's always dummies who do the shit.

  • Oh come women, you all know that we get busy and forget things. It is nice to have a reminder about the "little" things. LOL!

  • Haha! Well some people just need that little bit of advice. I mean why would they put half of the things they do on instructions ? Like a plastic bag isn't a toy ?? Come on, who doesn't know that?
