My mom had a hysterectomy right after I was born, and so the latest technology she knew was sanitary belts. I feel your pain. I kept telling my mom and grandmother that the ladies hopping around joyfully in tampon commercials were NOT using belts.

I snuck out and bought my own box of tampons and it literally took me 12 months before I had the courage to put one in. I spent lots of hours crying on the bathroom floor with a box of tampons and some menstrual belts. It seems kind of comical now.
