Many varieties, shapes, with wings, without wings, ever increasing absorbencies of sanitary towels or the alternative, applicator, non applicator, light, normal, super, ultra super absorbent, tampon? Is there no better solution out there? Do you still live a life of, I can't go swimming, I can't wear that, white, no way!, smelly, messy, inconvenient and often painful periods?
