Why does my stomach feel gassy and I have a metallic/cotton taste in my mouth when I have a tampon in? Happens everytime

Menstrual symptoms: I wonder if the metallic taste and gassy feeling are really the symptoms of your menstrual cycle, rather than the tampon? Certainly, both symptoms could be related to your period.
