Suddenly the peri-menopause seems an attractive time of life...

They tried scented back in the 1980s (Playtex?) They didn't catch on because no-one wanted to shove icky air freshener up their fanjo (and because the plastic applicators were not biodegradable)

Oh dear god!

That sounds vile!

Can't we just hang those little tree airfreshners on our knickers?

14 months into menopause and it seems to me that the benefits far outweigh the disadvantages. One of the many benefits being that I don't have to seek out sanitary items that don't smell like one of those Xmas tree dangly air fresheners that people put in taxis.

At moment got a pink fresh icon on put its not going be long until start sniffing tampons too! Burning pads but enough but not knowing until it's been up there while ouch.

I'll just buy a magic tree and stick that up my chuff. Ffs. Or one of them auto spray ones and puffs out a bit every so often. confused

Who buys this perfumed shite? Surely they just result in an itchy flange?

Oh God help us! Just came on after second (and final) baby - born relatively close to first - and forgot what a pain it is. Scented pads are bad enough but tampons?!! Agree that early menopause might be handy around now!!

Why not just stick a tin of 'Glade' up there and be done??

Because who doesn't like all sort of man made chemicals up their fanjo.

I didn't realise I smelt of old dog and smoke 😟

Oh well I shall start buying new car smell foo stuffers

And this is why I just bought my second menstrual cup.

Ffs I utterly despise the implication that something completely natural and normal needs covering up with fucking evil chemicals.

Why are they doing this to women? No one asked for it, now it is pushed on us, and teens are groing up thinking it's better to have an itchy and uncomfortable vagina, than bear the horror of a natural period.

BadDoGooder Mon 09-May-16 21:42:48

*groing? growing ffs.

GinAndSonic Mon 09-May-16 21:45:41

Ffs, I have never met a single person (other than my repressed sister) that thinks a fanjo should smell like anything other than a fanjo.

Junosmum Mon 09-May-16 21:56:09

Mooncups, or similar are the only way to go now!

Winterbiscuit Mon 09-May-16 21:59:52

Ridiculous. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

BusStopBetty Mon 09-May-16 22:00:28

Well that's a one way ticket to a thrush-ridden chuff.

kippersyllabub Mon 09-May-16 22:28:13

Do these companies make artificially scented products that go right next to the most sensitive parts of the male anatomy? Or is it just women that need to put up with the gladeification of our nether regions.

Akire Mon 09-May-16 22:36:52

Good point, surely by now should be some sort of sponge on stick for cleaning foreskin to "keep it all fresh all day long""

Ilovetorrentialrain Mon 09-May-16 22:38:47

Scented tampons? WTF?! So wrong.

Littleallovertheshop Mon 09-May-16 23:01:06

I really miss the menopause, it was the only good thing about chemotherapy.
I can't think of anything worse than shoving scented low grade materials...there.

ConfuciousSayWhat Mon 09-May-16 23:09:35

I'll stick to lilets thanks. Why oh why must they insist on trying to give us thrush all the time?!

ConfuciousSayWhat Mon 09-May-16 23:11:32

I've started opening the pack of sanitary pads a month in advance, it seems to get rid of the worst of the bleachy smell! Just wish always weren't so damned comfortable! (yes some of us need both pads and tampons)
