Well hmm

HecatesTwopenceworth Thu 23-Jul-09 20:28:21

Not at all.

Bet it was written by a man.

Happy period indeed. Twats.

dizzymare Thu 23-Jul-09 20:28:42

I'd give anything to have a period right now, happy or otherwise I'm not bothered

On behalf of Always can I offer my apologies for leading you to believe this. Our next ad will show woman doubled over in pain, hugging a hot water bottle and not wearing white trousers.
Thank you and sorry again.

There's a brilliant letter somewhere written by a woman to Always customer services sayign just that. I'll try and find a link

Someone once posted a letter on here allegedly written to Always' Head of marketing by an infuriated woman - can't remember who.

Ha! Beat me to it grin

Grown women still use towels regularly?

Ick. Terrible for the environment, too. REALLY bad.

Get a mooncup.

I didn't realise they printed it on the pad.

RustyBear Thu 23-Jul-09 20:35:10

That was the one....

HecatesTwopenceworth Thu 23-Jul-09 20:36:05

I LOVE the idea of printing Put Down The Hammer on san pads! grin

Imagine what else you could put on them!

PommePoire Thu 23-Jul-09 20:36:26

I had this forwarded from a friend ages ago in one of those 'doing the rounds' emails that normally drive you mad, but my god this woman pens a good letter, ROFL even now.

Thunderduck Thu 23-Jul-09 20:37:07

I use towels. No chance of me going anywhere near a Mooncup.

roneef Thu 23-Jul-09 20:37:27

I wish Always made me have a happy period!!

I've had a really bad reaction to the pads recently and think I may be allergic


roneef Thu 23-Jul-09 20:39:29

What's so icky about them anyway, expat?

Very useful. No worse than tissues, environmentally

expatinscotland Thu 23-Jul-09 20:40:40

They're smelly, like a nappy, and which would you rather have washing up on your shores, a tissue or a bloody, rank, used towel?

Totally vile.

Thunderduck Thu 23-Jul-09 20:43:17

There is no chance of a Mooncup or even a tampon going in there when I am sore and doubled over with intense cramps,tampons make me feel worse then.
There's more chance of dp going in there at that time and I have a restraining order taken out against him when I'm on my periods.

roneef Thu 23-Jul-09 20:44:20

I don't keep mine on for long enough to get smelly.

You're supposed to change them regularly,

much like a babys nappy.

I'm gonna miss my always.

AitchTwoOh Thu 23-Jul-09 20:50:48

to be completely serious, thunder, if you suffer badly it might be good for you to try. lots of us have found that the cramps we thought were coming directly from having our period were actually a result of using tampons. obv if you're using towels, this isn't relevant.

Thunderduck Thu 23-Jul-09 20:51:57

I have PCOS. Perhaps I'll try it one day when I'm feeling brave, but I found that tampons intensified my cramps.

AitchTwoOh Thu 23-Jul-09 20:54:30

i have pcos too, hunker i think had endo bad enough to need two ops and pcos. she found a transformation with the mooncup. good luck either way, it's horrible being in that sort of pain.
