    Question

    Hi. . Does anyone know where one can buy tampons here in Manila? I'm going on a trip this weekend but unfortunately, it's a red letter day for me.. if u know what I mean.

    Need to buy those darn things but I can't seem to find any. Tried the drugstore and supermarket in Mega na.

    Thanks .

    I get my supply at either JNC at the basement of Galleria or in the PX stores in Greenhills.

    If you haven't tried using tampons yet, I'd advise you to either practice or maybe just abstain from the water activities na lang. Majority of women will find it hard to put it on the first few times.

    Hi. Thanks for the quick reply, Doc Ira .

    Neways will try it out na rin. If it doesn't work, guess I have no choice but to abstain though .

    Just wondering though, is there any truth to what they say that it won't flow out when you're in water?

    Asbestos Concerns

    In the last six months, unfounded rumors on the Internet have suggested that U.S tampon manufacturers add asbestos to their products to promote excessive menstrual bleeding in order to sell more tampons. FDA has no evidence of asbestos in tampons or any reports regarding increased menstrual bleeding following tampon use.

    Before any tampon is marketed in the U.S., FDA reviews its design and materials. Asbestos is not an ingredient in any U.S. brand of tampon, nor is it associated with the fibers used in making tampons. Moreover, tampon manufacturing sites are subject to inspection by FDA to assure that good manufacturing practices are being followed. Therefore, these inspections would likely identify any procedures that would expose tampons products to asbestos. If any tampon product was contaminated with asbestos, it would be as a result of tampering, which is a crime. Thus far, FDA has received no reports of tampering. Anyone having knowledge of tampon tampering is urged to notify FDA or a law enforcement officer.
