still available ...... I checked the website I bought them and they jacked the price up 25 dollars a case.
I was surprised amazon had the best price. Also eBay still has them.

speaking of tampons.. my second case came in yesterday :)
How many years supply do you have now?
For 2 daughters and granddaughter. One year supply.

There's some valuable information here guys.

500 / 4 women = 125 per woman.
125 / 12 months = 10 per event (avg) + 5 spares.

Current price $70 / 500 = $ .14 ea
$0.14 × 10 = $1.40 each event

Think of the profit if you sell them for 10 for 1 oz silver.

Think how they may rip your limbs off when they are in the mood......... Gotta be a better way to make a buck.

Ok. Then sell 20 / 1oz. Tell them they're "on sale". They'll love you then, or only rip off 1 limb.

I'm not sure about that math.. It depends if the woman is one the pill. If not 5 per day for 5 days a month may be more accurate. So 15 to 25 a month would be more accurate. I love the way they call it an "event".

I was counting on you to correct my math. This was a guess by someone who doesn't use the product. I was being kind calling it an "event" and not a period, which is somewhat of an event if you think about it.

Since we are into education on the subject it is not safe for a woman to wear the same tampon for too many hours. They need to be changed every four hours even if not needed. Also the supers should only be used during heavy days. Toxic shock syndrome is always a worry. Its a concern that with tampons being short women will use them improperly trying to stretch them and toxic shock will increase again.

Wouldn’t it be cheaper just to cut the uterus out?

They did for decades... countless unneeded hysterectomies have occurred.
