Basic Facts – France
Where to find feminine hygienic products:
Fortunately, female hygienic products were easy to obtain at any supermarket, as long as you’re not picky about buying non-bleached, organic cotton tampons or pads. Personally, I brought my Diva Cup with me so I don’t have much detailed experience to draw from.
Where to find birth control:
You must have a prescription, although most pharmacies will be able to fill American presciptions IF they have the brand of birth control. Some of the newer types such as Yaz and the Nuva Ring are not readily available. You might have to see a doctor in order to be prescribed a new type of birth control.
