I typically wrap up the pad in a plastic store bag and take it out to the bin. I friggin hate periods.

I was at my cousin’s place one time when I was on my period and I was wearing pads at the time (thank goodness for tampons!!) I didn’t know what to do because I couldn’t flush the darn thing. So I do agree with PP here wrap it up with tissue really really well so it won’t smell. And right when you’re leaving I say throw it in your purse and trash it that way….or spray it.

WHY is this an issue? All I worry about is when I’m staying over at someone’x house for a few days and I have my period and they have ultra white sheets. But where to dispose of the products? Seriously? Or how to do it?.???

weatherbug:  From what I recall, the OP would bring a plastic bag with her, put her disposables in the plastic bag, put the bag behind the bathroom garbage can, then go back, get it, then sneak it to the outside garbage bin. It sounded like the Oceans Eleven version of menstration disposal.

I kinda get it. It’s annoying when we stay with FI’s family bc they don’t have a trash can in the bathroom. Like wtf? I feel like it should be a rule to have a trash can there.

But if they did have one, NBD. As PPs said, I’d just wrap it up well in TP. Done and done.

If you look under the comment box it’ll say close. That will close the thread and not allow any new comments OP.

LALaw:  I assume the op edited it because she wanted to shut down the topic.

I can’t see the original post but based on the comments I thought it had to be a troll. Then looked at her post count. 

I get the awkwardness of it, but your a grown ass woman, if your worried about the dog bring it to the kitchen. Yeah it sucks but it’s way better then the dog chewing on a used hygiene product. Its part of being a woman. Get over it.

If you start acting weird at someone else’s house & keeping a recon on people entering & leaving the bathroom to make sure they haven’t eyeballed your …um, stash…..& hovering between the bathroom and the outdoor garbages, they’re going to assume you’re a drug addict, a thief, or batshit crazy. Your actions may stem from self-consciousness, but they’re only escalating your anxiety regarding it. As others have said, be as discreet & hygenic as possible simply wrapping it up, but don’t go to any desperate measures.

I am amused that OP deleted her original post and replaced it with… periods!

flossy.lou:  And the nerve of her not putting them in a bag first.

Hahaha for those of you with inlaws with no bathroom toilet—I would bring a small new one with you next time with a bow on it and be like “I noticed you didn’t have a trashcan in the bathroom! So I got you one as a present!”

Seeing as the OP hsa deleted her original post I take it she got all the answers she wanted and didn’t know how to close the thread.

I’m going to go ahead and close this for her.
