Tampons were invented in the 1930s...at least that's when they started to be manufactured commercially and sold worldwide. (Tampax® Tampon was the first commercially successful tampon in 1936!)

That's because even then, deep down we knew there had to be an alternative to squatting in the fields or using rags.
