Ridiculous Things Fem Care Ads Say I Can Do

If the maxi pad wizards are to be believed, wearing certain pads or tampons can accomplish the following:

1. Make everything 10X cuddlier

2. Make my soccer skills 23% better

3. Make me 5X more likely to meet the man of my dreams

4. Make me 50% smarter

5. Make it 32% more likely that I can do an awesome flip off of a diving board 

What are some ridiculous claims you have seen?

Things I’d Love to See in Feminine Care

Having a tampon or pad that makes you good at soccer really doesn’t accomplish what I want a pad to do, and that’s to keep me from embarrassing myself during that big presentation. 

1. An audible warning when my tampon is almost full and about to leak. 

2. Automatic paid time off when I just want to hang out on the couch. 

3. A tampon that senses when you’re about to leak and activates a pad so you don’t have an accident. 

4. Something that tells me when my flow is about to change randomly so I know to put on a higher absorbency pad or tampon.

5. Something you can put on your pants when you do leak that makes the stain just disappear. 

What would you like to see in fem care?

What do you have to say?

A roundup of the best comments we’ve gotten from you about fem care advertising

  • They look like they are living a fantasy. No woman is looking at that and believing, it’s more “yeah right!” We buy for necessity, not the sporty, pretty casual girl. Show me a woman on the couch, eating ice cream in her sweats, THEN tell me the advantages of the product, much more believable.
  • They all look so enthusiastic. Like it’s so much fun that time of the month.
  • We all know what pads and tampons are…no need to hide it!

For those of you concerned about Kotex tampons…

We totally understand your concerns about this issue, and we take it very seriously. In the Kotex representative’s eagerness to get back to the concerned consumer’s e-mail right away, she unfortunately sent her incorrect information about the issue.

Nothing is more important to us than consumer safety. Any discoloration or abnormality with our tampons is extremely rare, and we want to do a full investigation to determine the source and follow-up with our manufacturing facility.

If you have any questions or concerns at all, please contact Consumer Services by email at or call us at 1-800-789-4495.
