Help me prove DH that he is wrong!

My husband says that I am the only woman who flush tampon down the toilet. Appearantly I am supposed to put the blood soaked cotton in the trash.

I told him that most women flush their used tampons. Now, the cardboard/plastic applicator is a different story... the applicator goes in the trash.

Well, the toilet is clogged... and he says it is my fault. Never mind the fact that we have two small kids.

So, help me settle this stupidbargument by answering this question:


Do you flush your used tampon down the toilet??

Or is he right and I have been doing it wrong for the past fifteen years??

Actually he is right. You need to trash them because they clog your toilet...

He is right, any plumber will tell you not to flush them.

SO said the same thing to me! I have always flushed them, he insists you're not supposed to. I told him to come back to me when he magically grows a uterus and then we'll talk
