    That sanitary stuff ie. towel, tampons, mooncups shouls be free?

    It's not out fault we have periods is it? And they give away free condoms etc so why not sanitary stuff?

    I agree its crap that these products are such booming industries as we simply cant do without them, when I first started my period I can remember being shocked and gutted that I actually had to waste money out of my teeny paper round pay to buy such borring and maditory objects which should be on the nhs, I totally understand why they arnt free the nhs is in enough debt already but I think companies shouldnt be allowed to charge so much for them!

    I agree, but then because they are free they'd only give you the most cheapest crappist ones about, and make you go to the drs to get a prescription lol

    But then it's nobodies fault that they have to wipe their ass after going to the loo either... all these bodily functions eh :rotfl:

    But I def agree how expensive they are for glorified bits of cotton wool on string, or long cotton wool pads covered in plastc.

    Breast pads too... so expensive for cotton wool pads but oh so necessary :(

    Mooncups effectively end up free after a while though surely? I paid £15 for mine 3 years ago and I've not needed to buy any sanitary protection ever since. Best thing I ever did.

    no I don't think they should be free. Why should they be?

    if you made them free you'd have to make loo roll free, and nappies, and razors for men etc :roll:

    they're definitely overpriced though.

    I've heard good things about moon cups. I0ve nver used on myself though. Don't like the ideo having to 'empty' it in a public place...... :puke:
