Question First Contact Visit Question - Ccc

HI. I will be going to my first contact visit tomorrow!! The question I have is not in any sticky or any post that I have seen and I am hoping someone can help me with this...... Does anyone know if we can bring "feminine hygeine" (sp?) aka pads and/or tampons to visiting!? Not that I want everyone there to know that aunt flo has shown up but I am going to be there for six hours and need to know if I can bring something with me. I was not able to call visiting to find out. Please, if anyone knows if I can bring anything, please let me know. Thanks in advance..

Kristin

Unfortunately, you can't... my own solution to that problem is to do the old "Suspenders and a Belt" act and start the visit with (forgive me being so detailed) a fresh tampon and a fresh pad... the alternative involves asking a CO for supplies- I've never been keen on having that discussion with total strangers

LOL.. thanks LeBeau. I just cannot believe they would not allow us to bring in at least ONE item. I am very tempted to put something down my pants!! LOL.. thanks for the info. that really sucks though!! I mean, come on. what do they expect us to do?!? We are WOMEN visiting a MENS prison. Are we supposed to plan our visits around "that time"?? Sorry, just a little frustrated. (and of course, it is "that time" LOL )

I actually got ahold of someone (a male) at the prison and I swear he was more embarresed than me in regards to the question But he said "I can't see them denying you" so what does that mean?!? I think i am going to try and bring something and also make sure, like you said, to make sure I am all "good" before I go in. LOL

Thanks again..

Oh yeah. I forgot about that, what end up happening. Did they let you bring something in or not. Or did you just sneak something.

Pat's wife, I was wondering the same exact thing! What happened? Did they let you bring something in? I noticed at my hubby's prison they have machines in the restrooms but they don't look like they will work...the sign by the machine says to ask a staff member for supplies....lol...yeah....sure....go up to the CO man and ask him for a tampon! Jeez...I feel like i'm in high school getting all embarrased.

They have a machine in the women's restroom!! I actually got pretty lucky and did not need to actually use the machine nor did I try to bring anything in. Sorry ladies if this is not much help. The machine did not say to ask anyone for the supplies, but again, not sure if the machine worked or not. Hope this helps!!

The last time I needed one of those "things" I had to ask the CO at the front desk in the visiting room. (luckily there was a female CO) They gave me a long box, you really couldn't hide it!! LOL!! I don't think there is anything is the machines in the restroom.

I'ts funny how women get embarrased to ask men for a tampon, why I don't know cus it's just part of life. I't's no secret women have that issue! And in reality it's the MEN who are far more embarrased then we will ever be. They freak out about just going to the store to buy them. How do you think the guy CO feels about having to carry one out to hand it to you?

Luckly,I've never been in the situation of having to ask them to assist me.I won't go visit when it's that time of the month.But if it happens surprisingly unexpectedly,I wouldn't want to use their supplies.They should put some new,working,up to date machines in the restrooms.Every woman is different and needs a specific type and size.I don't know about CCC,but at HD they supply you with either a pad or tampon and they're both like regular size.I know this because,this lady I know from up there had asked me once to come with her to the restroom because she was too embarrassed to ask the C.O.She asks him for a tampon and when he hands it too her,she looks at it,looks back at him and says," What is this,a wrapped up Q-TIP,cause that's what it's going to seem like all up in my ISH!What I'm supposed to do,clean my ear with it?" OMG...what happened to her being embarrassed? I don't know,but she suddenly got bold and I don't know why,but I was the one who got embarrassed .But me and the C.O fell out laughing and she was just standing there looking at him all serious.Then she asked him if she can have a pad also for back up and when he handed her a pad,she looked at him crazy,stupid,serious and said,"Maaan...what the hell,I ask you for a tampon and you give me a Q-TIP,I ask for a pad and you give me a BAND AID,what kind of ISH is this?" I couldn't believe my ears,me and the C.O were laughing so hard that the people in C and D's visiting rooms were looking at us through the windows and she was seriuos too...But anyway,yeah they need to put new machines or something,cause "ONE SIZE DOES NOT FIT ALL" ...

This thread should have had a warning at the top for "JLS" ,if he's came across it or does,he's probabley going to be like,"OH GOSH."

I'm to old to get embarrassed. I didn't want to embarrass the young male CO's who were working. (I think I'm old enough to be their mother) When I had to ask the CO (female) for a pad, the male CO's looked relieved that I had not asked them!!! And when my husband asked me what did I get from the CO, he turned a little red!!! It was pretty funny!!! I told my husband the next time I have to get a pad from the CO's, I will hold it up and wave it around!! He didn't think that was to funny!!! HEHE!! I did!!
Like you said, Forever..... It's just part of life!!!

LOL.. you ladies are funny. I know we should not be embarrased, but for some reason, I felt like I was a teenager again when I talked to the CO (male) . But again, I think he was more embarrased than me. I just can't believe they won't let us take it in. I mean, come on, what are we going to do with them?!?

Tazz'sGirl, that one made me laugh!! And edsbaby, i think we should ALL do that!! LOL. Everyone will stay out of our way, especially when we are heading to the vending machine with all the chocolate in it!!

Hey, a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do, right?!?

The vending guy said when he came in the week before last, he said inside the machine was hot everything was melted!!! The state owns the machines, so we will see how soon it gets fixed!! So I take it your going to be up visiting on Saturday?? I will be up for a visit this weekend. My anniversary is on Monday so we are celebrating this weekend. Hopefully there will be ice cream, my husband needs his ice cream!!!

Its funny how the vending guys are always there restalking the machines after the count I noticed during visiting. One time hubby said well come back and get that later refering to one of the combo sandwiches with salame in it and I said oh no it might not be here if we come back later LOL, gotta get it while its there, I will be up visiting on the 26th & 27th... Congratulations on your anniversary that is so cool.... Well I hope the vending machine is fixed and you guys get your ice creams but knowing how fast the state moves I wouldnt hold your breath....Its weird cause when we first walked by the vending machine with ice-cream it was hard to tell that was really a ice cream vending machine... Enjoy your visit!!!!!!!!!!!!! oh yea I will miss seeing you wave around the big institution pad this weekend LOLOLOLOL. too funny!

I just want to keep this one at the top of the list. I re-read it a couple of times last week while I was stressing over lock down and I was rolling by the end! Thanks All!
