Girls and teens should opt for slender tampons because they are smaller, easier to insert, remove, and manage. Some tampons come with cardboard or plastic applicators that help the tampon move up the vagina and into place. Other tampons have stick applicators or none at all. Yes, tampons are completely safe for your teen as long as you follow a few rules: Replace the tampons every four to five hours. Insert a fresh tampon before going to bed and then, after waking up and even before.

Use a pad overnight. Tips and Tricks for Using a Tampon If you are having trouble getting the tampon in, try lubricating the rounded end of the tampon with a water-based lubricant such as KY Jelly. Don’t use petroleum jelly. Always read the manufacturer’s instructions before using any type of tampon. Try a tampon with a plastic applicator in a junior size.

In addition, advise your daughter to use her finger in order to understand the angle of insertion before she needs to use the tampon. anonymous I would say that ob’s or something that doesn’t have an applicator might work better. Keep the following tips in mind when using tampons: Choose tampons according to your flow: Don’t use a tampon for a higher flow than what you have. If used for lighter flows, super-absorbent tampons can stick to the vaginal walls, causing tiny tears when you remove them.

Once the outer tube of the tampon is inside her vagina, ask your daughter to use her index finger and push the inner tube. While doing so, the string should not go inside the vagina and should instead hang outside. Once your daughter inserts the tampon properly, ask her to use her thumb and her index finger to take out the outer tube. Your vaginal opening is not too small.

Like the vagina, the vaginal opening can stretch easily. It is a fact the your vaginal opening can stretch just like it is a fact that your hair will grow! If you are having a hard time inserting your first tampon, try the light absorbency tampons.

Change your tampon every 8 hours or sooner as needed. Once you remove your tampon, you can go ahead and insert another one. Most people don’t sleep in tampons, and you may want to use a pad overnight instead, unless you plan on sleeping for less than 8 hours. If your tampon string is wet with menstrual fluid, then it’s time to change your tampon. Young girls and teens generally find tampons with applicators easier to use when they begin their period.

Tampons come in various shapes and sizes with different levels of absorbency and are designed to hold from six to eight grams of blood. Depending on your flow, amounts of blood lost may vary and the tampon size you use will change. Tampons are less bulky and less messy than pads, which are the biggest selling points for those who use them.

Beginners should start with slender tampons that come in plastic applicators. Cardboard.

  • Guys. Just thimkkk I haven’t bought any yet but I have asked my mum I AM 12. Like I am like dis gonna hurt and just think shuv it up there and u ain’t gunna

  • For those of you that are nervous, don’t be it’s really not that bad just go for it. It may feel a little weird when going in but after it’s in you shouldn’t feel anything:) (I’ve just successfully inserted a tampon today!)

  • I’m so scared I got my period in COVID and I’ve never gone to school with it and I’m going into middle school so three stressful things in one year

  • I was so confused, I used a mirror to try to locate my woohaa because I had no idea where tampons are supposed to be inserted, AND I COULD NOT TELL WHAT STUFF I WAS LOOKING AT, LIKE I SAW SEVERAL HOLES LMAO

  • i’m really nervous cuz i’m 15 and had it for 5 months now and i think i’m about to start either tomorrow or reallyyyy soon. i haven’t ‘explored’ down there and i’m scared it’s gonna hurt.

  • Pushing the applicator in is easy for me. (I did push it completely in according to the manual) But I feel pain when pushing the tampon in. Is that normal? No one seem to be talking about it. I really need some help!

  • Today was my first time using one and taking it out and putting them in was the hardest part bc I was so confused on how to buh when I got it.. it wasn’t that bad. Taking it out kinda hurt but wasn’t an pain I couldn’t take

  • I was somehow able to put in a tampon in the morning but now I should change it and I have to go through it again ���� also am I the only one who doesn’t have tampons with applicator?

  • Caution do not keep it left in ur vagina for more than 6 8 hours otherwise you ll get within 24 hrs duration Toxic shock syndrome which is fatal to life sometimes even amputation is required

  • You guys should totally try it. It will be SO worth it once you can get it in. Just keep trying and don’t be nervous, bc you have no reason to!

  • ☠️Am I the only one that only like wearing comfortable stuff like sweatpants, oversized t shirts and hooddies when im on my period and like when I have to go to school we have a school uniform: white t shirt, tight skirt and white Thights with a blazer. I’M ALREADY DYING AND I HAVE TO WEAR THIS XNDNDKDIEBDEKSKDJDJ☠️

  • Omg I remember when I was super excited to get my first period, then when I finally got it I was like yay. Then came next month, PERIODS ARE GROSS, YUCK, PAINFUL, BLOODY, MESSY AND UNCOMFORTABLE ��! And boys think they have it easy!

  • The most awkward moment is when you have to change your tampon during class but u don’t know how to grab your tampon from your bag without people seeing u

  • They really need to teach this in school. Young girls should not be afraid or nervous about asking for guidance when it comes to your period. Don’t be afraid to ask a friend your parents or even a teacher(a female teacher) any questions

  • bruh I’m 13, and I’m going to the beach tomorrow with my dad, his friend and his friend’s daughter, he told me this literally 10 minutes ago and I just can’t say “no sorry I don’t wanna come”
    currently binging all the videos I find about tampons �� wish me luck lol

  • me: realizes that a penis has to go in me to have sex
    also me: scared to put in a tampon
    yet again, me: “yup. i’m never gonna have sex”

  • I cant get it in and I just happened to wait until the day before I swim in my friends pool and I’m realizing now how hard this is now��

  • It’s not like your gonna ask someone if your 20 something. The women in my family have bad tampon stories… mom never wore them and aunt said almost fainted when trying So not like they have experience either lol

  • I’m 13 and this helped me I got my first period when I was 12 and I told my mom and she asked if I wanted a pad or tampon I said pad because I was afraid to use a tampon but now when I get my period again I want to try using a tampon so I get use to using it



  • Pads are so uncomfortable but I have to wear them cause of discharge and period but I try to get used to them but I can’t I’ve tried many different ones all and uncomfortable for me

  • Ive been using tampons for 2 years (I’m 15 and started 2 years ago) and I use them all the time. I just got a menstrual cup and I hope I start using that now

  • This is my second period and right when i got it i went to the store and bought the smallest tampons and its rly scary when u do it but now its fine! But the hardest part is to find the right hole.. i mean i looked for hours…

  • Omg so I wasted a ton of tampons and I still can’t get it in! I’m just to scared! I got the smallest tampons I found and I can’t get it in! ��
