In the summer of 2019, a woman in California decided to wash her hands with an elbow tampon.
She put the tampon into her vagina, but was surprised when it didn’t work.
“I thought it was just the tampons that were not working,” she says.
“Then, I looked into it a bit further, and it turned out that I was not the only one.
And so, I was like, ‘Why am I the only person who was not getting anything?'”
