Can you tell me what is allowed? I am going to Chuckawalla and what they have there for free is awful. Can I bring my own?

The only prison I have been to that allows you to bring tampons in, is Lancaster.

Thanks everyone. You were right. They would not allow any in from the outside.

Something else to consider is a "menstrual cup". You can google the brand name "diva cup". It's silcone, and catches the flow, rather than soaking it up. You just empty it when necessary, and I've gone as long as 4 hours with a serious flow going on. It cost me about $30, I think, but I haven't bought anything else in several years. It took a minute to get used to, but I wouldn't go back now.
