    Toilet paper would only be a choice if there's nothing else available, since it's designed to start breaking down when it gets wet, which makes it more difficult to remove from the wound later. Our septic tank guy has reminded us several times not to flush tissues down the toilet because they aren't designed to break down like toilet paper. That kind of puts it in the same sort of 'advisability' category as the artificial clotting agents we were discussing earlier. ER folks don't like it when you use it unless it was absolutely necessary to save a life.

    There's also this new stuff that just got approved by the FDA:

    Oh please, I mention my related experience so you know my comment has some real-world fact behind it, and your ego is so frail that you take offense. Cry me a river.

    Alright, fellas... let's keep this educational.

    Blueshell, maybe chen was being sarcastic like you? Regardless, let's continue to offer up useful information based from experience.

    I'm not offended by your comment, I found it funny, that's why I'm happier than you.

    Btw, toilet paper is a stupid idea, so are tampons. Why? Answer this...

    Whats the point of gauze?

    Feminine pads work though. Not as a first choice.
