Ever hear the adage, "Necessity is the mother of invention"? It is very true. From early civilization and on through the industrial revolution, things were invented because people needed them.
horse & buggy to automobile
ice box to refrigerator
tools to work with
fire to cook with
deodorant and anti perspirant
You like all natural, so here are some natural facts: It is natural that on occasion there arises the necessity for a woman to douche. No, it does not have to be anything store-bought, as water does the job just fine, and water also is natural. If you don't like tap water (city treated), then buy distilled water. Or, yo can distill water yourself by leaving it out for 24 hours so the chlorine evaporates and then boiling the water. You don't have to douche often, just once a month after each menstrual will be enough. If it is not enough, then nothing natural from the earth can help you because you need to see a doctor.
You might also consider changing your bath soap/liquid/gel/glycerin or whatever product you use. Even something natural can cause odor, can cause you to produce body odor, or is useless at cleaning well enough to remove the odor. Not all things natural are good for every purpose, and not all work well enough for any purpose. You might like it because it's natural, but that doesn't mean it cleans your body. Even if it does, it still may not work to wash away any odor. And the fact is, not all things made to clean are also effective on odors. Tide and other laundry detergents come to mind, and those include the natural ones that I have tried over the years. It takes hours of soaking for some odors to wash away. Underarm odor and my grandson's peepee pants come to mind. I noticed when Summer's Eve Feminine Wash came out many years ago, I tried it one morning and couldn't believe what I smelled like a few hours later. I could not imagine something supposedly made for the purpose of washing down there actually caused odor down there. I smelled like I REEEEALLY needed to take a bath as if I had not washed for days or something. Never used that stuff again and stuck with my good ole Dove I used for years. I also noticed that Castile liquid (natural) does nothing for odor even though I think I feel clean.

I think I would investigate as to why!
Just really curious to know if all or any of the other men thought like this. Is it so hard to think it through far enough to realize she obviously didn't need a "replacement" for 365 days a year, or however many days or weeks before she discovered the lost tampon. Was it like the other guys, or just crossbar, to never imagine there came the day/the time/the hour that she DIDN'T need a replacement and that happened to be the day she forgot about the last one? Or, did he really imagine she lives her entire life in constant need of a "replacement" tampon? The intent was to criticize her with an awfully stupid and limited thought process.
