Excuse mistakes I am typing really fast

Having spray tan in 28 mins. It's the kind where a woman sprays you and you are in front of her wearing little disposable pants

My period is threatening to come. I have draggy pains and javelin-arse pains but no bleeding at all.

When it arrives, it really arrives.

What shall I do, what shall I do?

A) stick up a tampon and risk getting it stuck

B) put in a pad and wear normal pants which will look funny when I put my bikini on tomorrow on hols (NB my pads have wings which the beautician will have to look at bless her)

C) go without any San pro in the hopes that it holds off

Pls answer a, b or c quickly pleeeease!!!

You'll only have it in for a short time surely? Take it out straight after and replace with pad.

It will be in for 40 mins. I have no lube

Tampon won't get stuck don't worry. Toxic shock is really rare. Enjoy your hols!

A, you won't need lube.

blibblibs Thu 15-Nov-12 17:40:11


It'll be fine.

A. You won't get toxic shock from having a tampon in for a couple of hours, surely?
In the longer-term, get a moon up which would have been the ideal answer to this problem.

40 minutes is fine. Baby oil will be ok if you don't have lube. Do not forget about it, take it out as soon as you get home.

A. Definitely.

tak1ngchances Thu 15-Nov-12 17:41:38

I so thought you all would say b or c!! Ok am doing a. Wish me luck!

tak1ngchances Thu 15-Nov-12 17:43:25

Spit? I am not worried about getting it in. I am worried about getting it Out

erm since when do tampons get stuck??????????

a, obvs

TENDTOprocrastinate Thu 15-Nov-12 17:44:20

40 mins for a spray tan?? Mine takes 10 mins, then 5 mins of drying in front of the fan. surely they have a loo u can use to take out tampon. Anyway, I'm sure a couple of hours with a tampon would be fine. Toxic shock is a rare reaction- not really to do with dry tampon use.

tak1ngchances Thu 15-Nov-12 17:44:56

If its totally dry, no period, and the tampon has sucked up any erm natural lubrication? It could get stuck then I guess?

Just wear black knickers & cut your wings off your pad.
Tell her you don't want disposable knickers on. Chuck your black spray painted ones out when you get home.
