Are Your Feminine Hygiene Products Killing You?

Based on your choice of feminine hygiene products and the information presented in this article, you’ll be in a better position to answer the question, “Is my tampon killing me?” Whether you use pads, tampons, or another product during your period, it is worth investigating what you are exposing or inserting into a very sensitive area of your body. The average American woman will use at least 10,000-20,000 tampons in her lifetime. So, if you are a female, and you use tampons, there are a few things you should be aware of.

The ingredients in tampons, pads, or any other feminine hygiene product don’t have to be listed or disclosed by the manufacturer because the FDA considers feminine hygiene products as “medical devices”. Since the vaginal canal is lined with permeable mucous membranes, which easily absorbs chemicals, it’s important to know what’s going in there! Since the FDA doesn’t regulate the ingredients used in feminine hygiene products, it’s up to you to make an informed decision about tampon that you choose to use (or any other feminine hygiene products for that matter)!
