Don't worry, ladies: A man has crunched the numbers on how many tampons we should be using.

So.

A random man on the internet is here to tell you exactly how much periods cost, and hallelujah we are saved.

It seems we’ve been overspending on tampons this WHOLE TIME. D’oh!

He purports to know exactly how much blood each woman sheds during her period and Good Lord mansplaining has reached a whole new level.

A whole new level of hilarity, in this situation, because it really is quite amazing how entirely wrong he is.

Firstly, it appears he does not know how many months there are in a year.

Secondly, he is seemingly unaware of the fact that one should most definitely avoid keeping a tampon in for an entire 24 hours.

And thirdly, it is abundantly clear he has never spoken to a woman in his entire life.

Behold:

“So the average period is between 10-35ml of blood, each tampon holds about 5ml, so 7 tampons per cycle,” he began.

“Lets be generous and say 10 for those ladies with an extra juicy uterine lining (sic).”

via GIPHY

“9 periods per year = 90 tampons max.”

And sorry, what? That’s not… right.

He went on:

“You can get a 64 pack on amazon for £7.90 plus shipping. Buy two packs, save on shipping and have 128 tampon for the year, thats about £20 here or their for a years periods (sic).”

And the pièce de résistance:

“Cut down on your starbucks venti frapps and stop whining.”

Ahem.
