In 2016, the Supreme Court ruled in favor of a New Jersey woman who sued Macy’s over its tampon policy.
The court’s ruling effectively ended the tampon mandate in the New Jersey state, allowing companies like Macy’s to continue to charge a $10 fee for all their products that don’t come with pads.
That led to a backlash against companies like Nordstrom, Target, and others, with some people questioning whether these companies were forcing women to buy tampons at all.
That’s why we’ve created a guide to making sure you’re not paying for them, and how to avoid the pitfalls of the internet.
Read the label carefully 1.
The “Tampon Policy” label is usually accompanied by a warning label explaining that the product may not be approved for use in all areas of the body.
That warning label is often followed by the following disclaimer: The product may contain ingredients that may be harmful to your health.
We recommend using tampons only in areas where you are physically able to do so, or for use at the end of a period.
The only exception is when necessary to protect your health or safety.

Check the ingredients on the package If you’re shopping online, look for ingredients that are not listed in the “may contain ingredients” label.
These include preservatives, preservatives with artificial flavors, and coloring agents.
Ask your health care provider about the tampons You’ll want to ask your health insurance company about the product that you’re ordering.
Some health care providers can provide you with a list of companies that sell the product and your coverage, and you can also ask the manufacturer for a free tampon.

Get a tampon The tampon may be a little pricey, but it’s often worth it.

Buy your tampon online You may be able to get your tampons from the women’s fashion section of your local Target or Walmart.
However, many online retailers are also known as “bazaar” stores.
That means that their items are usually not marked with a “bodega” or a “store” logo.
You’ll need to be careful when buying online.
Some of these sites have policies that restrict items that aren’t approved for sale in their stores, and those policies may not apply to online sellers.
Shop for tampon inserts Sometimes, a tamponoin may be in an item’s packaging that is sold separately from other items.
In that case, you may need to contact your local pharmacy for a prescription.
Shop online When shopping online for tampones, check to see if you can buy tampon insert packages.
If not, check your local store’s inventory to see which tampon packages are available.
Check your tamponoino’s expiration date The expiration date of tampons has been set in the product’s packaging.
However: If you get a tamponic from a store that is over 6 months old, or a tampony is over 4 months old and is marked “unopened,” the expiration date will not expire until the item is returned to the manufacturer.
Read our guide on how to change the expiration of tampones.
Check for shipping labels There may be labels on tampon packs that indicate they are sent by mail.
You should be aware that tampons will often come with their own postage labels.
These labels are typically printed on the tampone itself.
Check to see whether your tamponic is in stock You should also check to make sure that your tampony isn’t already on sale.
Some retailers sell tampons on clearance or in special offers, but there are some exceptions.
