The supply chain crisis facing America has claimed another victim as tampons are increasingly hard to find in stores.

Reports are emerging that in addition to baby formula supply issues, women are now finding it increasingly difficult to find tampons.

Mothers and families are waiting on tarmacs in hopes of getting their hands on scarce but much needed baby formula. They can now add tampons to their list of paucity.

Biden's first year of office saw continued Covid - 19 restrictions that kept businesses closed and paid workers to stay home, causing a supply chain backup to blossom into a full supply chain crisis by 2021's end.

The situation was exacerbated by Putin's invasion of Ukraine which stymied the import of goods and raw materials from the region, such as fertilizer used to grow cotton.

Cotton is a key material in the manufacture of feminine hygiene products.

Tampons and pads have also been affected by the 41 year high inflation. As Bloomberg reports menstrual pads' price rose 8.3 percent and tampons' price 9.8 percent compared to last year.

The brand most drastically affected by the shortage is Tampax, made by Proctor and Gamble. With targets such as President Joe Biden and Russian President Putin to blame the company added a new person into the mix, Amy Schumer.

As the New York Post reports, Schumer appeared in a very successful Tampax campaign in 2020 that caused demand to go up neatly 8 percent. Tampax said the already high demand set the stage for the recent shortages. The star of movies "Snatched" and "Trainwreck" did respond on Instagram by saying she didn't even have a uterus anymore, after having a hysterectomy in 2021 due to her endometriosis.
