Generic tampons?

Anyone ever try them?

I've never been brave enough to try generic tampons but today at Kroger I decided to pick up their version of those pearl tampons. Still haven't tried them but the box is there if I ever get up the courage 😂

They're not horrible but I would always use a backup pad just in case. I'd even do that with the name brand ones.

I've had bad experiences with generic tampons.

Nope, can't do it. The store brands just don't stack up for me, but I've never tried them from Kroger. Good luck I guess!

That's like the one thing I don't ever want to fail. Hell I can even handle my brakes on my car failing but tampons? That's a big red NO

I have tried generic tampons. The generic tampons are not much different from the regular brand tampons. Get up the courage and try one of them.

It was worse than a fail, my cooter swelled to Baboon Butt proportions.

I use the Wal-Mart brand. That's all I buy. The ones with the plastic applicator do better than the one with cardboard.


I've found that to be with name brand and generic

That's toxic shock syndrome right?
