I really don't know but the fact that this is on Tumblr makes me think that this is total ******** that isn't even remotely true.

Actually the origin of tampons date back to egyptian/greek/roman times.

Holy **** this is so incorrect.

"The oldest printed medical document, papyrus ebers, refers to the use of soft papyrus tampons by Egyptian women in the fifteenth century B.C. Roman women used wool tampons. Women in ancient Japan fashioned tampons out of paper, held them in place with a bandage, and changed them 10 to 12 times a day. Traditional Hawaiian women used the furry part of a native fern called hapu'u; and grasses, mosses and other plants are still used by women in parts of Asia and Africa."

Did some research, sadly this is ******** .

Ancient Egyptians invented the first disposable tampon.
The applicator tampon with the removal cord was invented in 1929 by Dr. Earl Haas.

To clarify:

Women have used tampons during menstruation for thousands of years. In her book Everything You Must Know About Tampons (1981), Nancy Friedman writes "There is evidence of tampon use throughout history in a multitude of cultures. The oldest printed medical document, papyrus ebers, refers to the use of soft papyrus tampons by Egyptian women in the fifteenth century B.C. Roman women used wool tampons. Women in ancient Japan fashioned tampons out of paper, held them in place with a bandage, and changed them 10 to 12 times a day. Traditional Hawaiian women used the furry part of a native fern called hapu'u; and grasses, mosses and other plants are still used by women in parts of Asia and Africa."
The tampon has been in use as a medical device since the 18th century, when antiseptic cotton tampons treated with salicylates were used to stop bleeding from bullet wounds.

That's not true, they were always used for menstruation, they just used them in world war 2 for bullet wounds

modern tampons maybe. the ancient egyptians had reusable tampons, so they've been around for probably as long as people have seen blood leaking genitals as an issue.

And this is why if I ever went back in time I would become celebite. A time when women didn't shower, shave, wore clothes for months at a time and re-used tampons? No thanks.

Arguing with Tumblr logic is like arguing with an animal that is trying to eat you.
