Default Feminine Products at Visits

The prison that I visit at does not have a feminine product machine in its restroom like the other prisons my husband has been at. Does anyone know what I should do or have any suggestions, before I ask a CO. I know everything we bring in has to be in a see through purse or bag and this is not one of the things on the list. Any suggestions????

If you are visiting Lancaster ( Csp-Lac) you can bring them in with you. At New Folsom you have to buy them from the guard in the control booth Those are the only 2 prisons that I have been to that do not have machines in the bathroom.

I hate to have to be so...graphic...my solution has been to "double up" by using an internal product (either a tampon or the Instead softcup) backed up by a thin maxi... so far no "oops" and no awkward questions.

Where I visit, they have the pads just out in the open and you get your own, I don't want to use them so what I do is just put them in my pockets or bra and make sure that I take care of business before i go into the visit.....

I would just wear double pads one under the one being used that way when you're ready to change into a new one you'll have it right under and just take the dirty one out, just a suggestion. That's probably something I would do.

I thought the facility allow you take a certain amount of feminine products in the visiting room. Just ask one of the CO's how many you can take in with you. I try to schedule my visits around my periods. But sometimes it doesn't work out like that.
