So I’m home and sick and DH, who happens to work second shift just texted me and asked if I needed anything. I replied, “Dayquil, Nyquil, and tampons”. He replied back “tampax regulars right?” and that made me think is DH normal?
DH is the only man I have ever asked, besides my Dad, because I never felt comfortable before. Would you ask your SO/FI/DH to buy you tampons? and if you did would he buy them?

It is no big deal to my FI. He is very much in tuned to my body and its doings as I feel he should be as we have a intimate relationship. I have had him pick them up before when I haven’t been able to get out of the house.

I voted that I would never ask him becuase I know that he never would do it. :”]

I’m surprised by how many said YES. I’m glad my man isn’t the only dude holding a box of tampax in line at the CVS.

I voted that I wouldn’t ask him… Not because it’s a TMI situation, but because I know that he would buy the wrong ones no matter how well I described them, and I’m really picky about my tampons. 😀

He would do it, but I’d have to give SUCH explicit instructions that it would just be more work to have him do it then to do it myself.
But he’d try.

He has before. He told me once “I’m not gonna lie, I kind of hid them in my jacket.”
All I could picture when he told me that was him getting hassled by security for them thinking he was trying to steal a box of tampons.

I have asked my husband to do it before, and he has said no. Not right out no, but gets an uncomfortable look on his face. Jeeze louise, the man doesn’t feel embarrased about buying condoms (nor should he be), but gets squeamish at the thought of being seen buying a box of tampons. Yeesh! Luckily I live above the drug store, so I just get them myself.

My husband buys them for me whenever I’ve asked him. He picks up prescriptions, tampons, diapers, whatever I need!
I can’t believe some guys would say no! Jeez, obviously the people behind the counter know he’s not on his period.
ETA: I don’t wear diapers, we have a baby LOL

He’s done it once before! I could tell it made him a little uncomfortable but he didn’t complain or give me shit for it.

@KatyElle: I KNOW! It makes no sense.

DH wouldn’t mind at all. He has even bought tampons for his mom back in the day.

mwitter80: I feel like there’s something not normal with me because when I read the part where he knew which kind to get you, I thought immediately, “Aww, that’s sweet that he pays attention!” Lol

He would buy them, but I wouldn’t ask him to. I stock up when they go on sale and I usually have coupons, haha. I’m also pretty particular, so it’s just easier if I do it 🙂
