When travelling it can often be a problem buying tampons or on long trips to take enough with you.
An alternative is a Diva Cup which is a kind of plastic egg cup that you insert like a tampon but resuse. Yes it sounds horrible but comes in different sizes and with practice is no more difficult than using a regular tampon.
If out for the day it tends to last longer than a tampon without leaking or if you go to a toilet where there are no sinks to rinse it through then you can just remove it, empty and wipe with toilet paper or a baby waper before re-inserting.
They are small enough to keep in your handbag so especially handy if you have irregular periods.
Read the main web page to work out which size you require then either locate a store or save money by comparing prices on line.
An added bonus is that these are better for the enviroment, cost less overall and don't produce toxic shock.
