My.Flow is a startup company that created tampons that tell you when they are full using bluetooth technology (Yes, you heard that right, Bluetooth)  and its aim is to empower women through insight and to obliterate the period anxiety that plagues virtually 51 percent of the world at some point in their lives. But critics argue that women know their own cycle and when to change their tampon.

This is how the bluetooth tampon works, it connects to a period tracking monitor via a six to 12 inch long string, which is then snapped to your waistband or underwear. In addition to a connected tampon and monitor, the system includes an accompanied app that tracks your period both granular and monthly when not in use, the monitor can act as a key chain holder(Interesting isn't it?).

 

As interesting or weird as this sounds you can't help questions like, What does the alert on your phone say?, Does it have buttons  ON the tampon?, Is it machine washable?. Well this new innovation has certain setbacks as most of the vagina bearers said they would be reluctant to wear a tampon with so long a string and no one seemed crazy about the idea of having your tampon clipped to your waistband.
