You can use natural sea sponges,which are easily washed for re-use.They can be purchased at pharmacy stores.
As a 19 year old I went on an extended hiking trip,and three weeks out remembered I hadn't packed any feminine hygiene equipment,so naturally I
panicked,and for the first time in my regular schedule,the period never came.I just skipped the month. Another time,a decade later,I had my period,and
got separated from my gear due to a bushfire. I was desperate,and again panicked.To my relief however,the period(which was in the heavy phase)stopped
abruptly and that was it for the month. Women in prisoner of war camps reportedly never got their periods at all.
As regards increased risks with wild animals then perhaps you could rub strong smelling plants onto your exposed skin to counteract this,or add to a
billy and use to wash yourself e.g.pine needles maybe.Why not checkout what,if anything,the indigenous people used in the past and how they dealt with
the whole issue.Australian aboriginals used to use paperbark,but they had no bears or big cats to worry about.
