See the roughly contemporary Cashay and Dale tampons, and
very early Tampax
See a shorter

"Tampons as menstrual guards"
("The Dickinson Report," 1945)
Read about this here.
Dickinson discusses how much menstrual
discharge women lose, the structure of the
vagina, uterus, the disadvantages of
sanitary napkins, and how tampons perform.
A Dutchman kindly donated this report
added the three arrows and accompanying
text to clarify what most people
have never seen,
a belt holding a menstrual pad.
