Well that depends on what exactly you use, but I’ve found that it’s pretty easy to find brands while you’re there. If you don’t want to waste the space of a big box, why don’t you just bring a zip-lock bag of how many you think you’ll need, and if it turns out you need more you can buy some there. The thing is, even if you wait to buy them while you’re there, you’re still going to get stuck with the same big box of tampons. I usually just try to bring what I’ll need.

If you are picky, I wouldn’t risk it.  …I have found every city to be different and that’s not the sort of thing you want to have to trek all over to find if you can avoid it.  For a lot of things, I don’t mind a foreign brand but I’m with you being picky with the feminine products Wink

Please note that just because it’s the same brand, the product aren’t nessecarily the same.  Companies often have different product lines in different countries.
 
So if you are very selective about what you use, bring it with you.
