This cotton mat began to be popular in Europe and America in the the 1940s, and gradually developed to use disposable materials to make

It is also said that the ancient women, because there is no sanitary cotton can be used, so in the cave age of women, sometimes directly with the sea sponge, or grass and other things made into tampons use.

Stage of washing By 19th century, entering the stage of "washable sanitary cotton", the female will put the cotton wool or rags into the bag, and make the so-called "broken bag" as the sanitary cotton use.

In addition to the use of broken bags, women of that age would wear a "sanitary apron" in the middle of their hips and clothes (a rubber pad of half an apron size, instead of a piece of cotton cloth, and then around the waist, the cotton blanket on the rubber mat around the hips to bypass the vagina, and then use safety pins or hanging clips fixed), so at that time menstruation came days, is always inconvenient.

(Another said, the First World War, the American female nurse who served in France.) Those dressed in light white women are the pioneers of modern professional women. Even though menstruation, they still want to maintain that elegant, agile and able, so then the menstrual supplies made a bold attempt: with bandages and medicinal cotton, made the first sanitary napkin, sanitary napkin invention, is undoubtedly great, its significance is more than the era.
