Man Leaves People In Hysterics After Getting Confused About Girlfriend's Tampons

Twitter was left in hysterics this week, after one man got seriously confused about his girlfriend's tampon selection.

Posting a photo of two tampons side by side - one labelled 'L' and one labelled 'R' the man wrote: "What the heck is the difference between a Left and Right tampon??"

We are screaming!

The tweet has racked up thousands of likes and comments, with many posting hilarious replies about what the 'L' and 'R' could mean.

Of course, as one woman pointed out: "It has to do with a woman’s flow and the absorption of the tampon...

"L: Light - beginning of the period or end.

"R: Regular - not too light not too heavy.

"S: Super - heavy flow."

While many users were happy to finally understand what the 'L' and 'R' stood for, we can't stop laughing at some of the hilarious responses.

One person joked: "It depends on what side of your body you lay on when you sleep. L for if you sleep on your left side, R for right. I use S for sport mode because I toss and turn all night."

And another said: "The L and R define which way you turn them to screw the tampon into place."

"Poor guy didn’t know women have two vaginas," said another, to which one responded: "Another example of how the US education system has failed us… anyway, I had my left vagina removal a few years ago. If anyone would like all the L tampons. Message me."

And the jokes just kept on coming, with one woman adding: "L is for when you shed the egg your left ovary releases, R is for when you shed the egg your right ovary releases."

And another added: "They’re for if you’re right handed or left handed, obviously."

Finally, Tampax also delved into the comments to confirm: "We’re here to clear this up once and for all! L = Light, R = Regular, S = Super. All about that period flow."
