Will the body scanners at the airport detect anything under

Customer Question

Will the body scanners at the airport detect anything under the skin? For instance if I had my period could they tell if I was wearing a tampon?

Hi, My name is ***** ***** I am happy to assist you. Yes they do detect these such things. The best thing to do to avoid any embarrassment that might happen is to let a female officer know that it is that time of the month so they will know when you go through the scanners that it is not something other that tampon.
