A man has gone viral on Twitter after he so expertly explained how much money women should be spending on tampons per cycle, per year. He done did solved it!

It was only last month that the internet crowned its Mansplaining Champion of 2019 but this bloke, well, he’s fair competition.

Per the Guardianthe man, who was not named, commented on a PinkNews Facebook post to solve the issue in a stunning display of mathematics and general knowledge.

“So, the average period is between 10-35ml of blood, each tampon holds about 5ml, so 7 tampons per cycle,” he started.


“Let’s be generous and say 10 for those ladies with an extra juicy uterine lining.” 

Extra juicy uterine lining.

“9 periods per year = 90 tampons max.” 

Nine periods per year. Nine months – I don’t know about you lot but my bloody period does not go on vacation for three months of the year.

“You can get a 64 pack on amazon for £7.90 plus shipping. Buy two packs, save on shipping and have 128 tampons for the year, that’s about £20 here or there for a years’ periods.”

The pièce de résistance?

“Cut down on your starbucks venti frapps and stop whining. This isn’t a first world problem.” 

As you can imagine, women were left rather puzzled by this man’s curious reasoning.

Another top comment? “Coffee or tampons? That’s the choice? Ok, I choose coffee. He’d better hope he doesn’t sit in my seat when I get off the bus.” 

And another one? “I switched to a Diva cup and I bleed 35ml per DAY on my cycle. Riddle me that, cuttlecock.” 

One more? “Do you want TSS (Toxic Shock Syndrome). Because that’s how you get TSS.” 

Happy International Women’s Day!
