The average American woman uses up to 16,800 tampons in her lifetime – or as many as 24,360 if she's on estrogen replacement therapy.And that's just tampons…

The women in your life – your partner, your sister, your mother, your daughter – they may need this information, too. It's up to you to pass it on to them.
