Hey girl, the next time you run out of period supplies, why don't you mention buying tampons to your mom instead of pads. This way, it won't be out of the blue. Don't worry too much about it, babe. After all, you mom's a woman too! Jiae K.

I dont know if i should wear a tampon for swimming? I only wore one once the other day and i have swimming tonight. It hurt when i took it out because there wasnt enough blood i guess and it was even a lite. My period is even lighter now and it would still go through my bathingsuit. i dont want to wear a pad/pantiliner (i did that once and it absorbed like all this water and wouldnt stick)I dont want the blood to get all in the pool but idk if i should wear the tampon. Do you think i should? Also, if you wear a tampon in the water, could someof the water go up and get the tampon wet? (so that it would be easier when takingit out)
ps. I competitive swim, its not like a leasurely swim. lol and sorry this is so long!!

Hey babe, if you have your period still you should definitely wear a tampon for swimming.  If it would still go through a bathing suit, yes you should wear a tampon.  If you're really uncomfortable with it, maybe you could ask to sit out for today until you're more comfortable wearing a tampon on a light flow.  Try wearing a Slim-fit tampon or a tampon designed for lighter days, if you're set on going to practice Smile Def don't settle for a panty liner or the water they don't work!

MODMODMOD!!! So like some of my friends use tampons instead of pads. I've never tried a tampon and I don't think I ever want to. They sound to uncomfortable and hard to use. Is it bad if I only use pads? Please help!! -Anonymous


Hey girl, its not bad at all. You can use whatever you want, its entirely a personal decesion. Don't be afraid to give tampons a try though. They really aren't that bad when you get a hang of them, and are really handy for situations like swimming and sports.

MOD MOD MOD MOD! I have 3 things. 1) what's happens to a tampon if I poop? What happens to the string? 2) Im thinking of getting tampons buy where in my vigina am I gonna put it on? 3)My dad says nail polish make my nails turn dark and I searched on the Internet and they say it dosent and I told my dad and he still dosent bielive me! What should I do?


Hey girly, if you have to use the bathroom, take the old tampn out and insert a new one. When you put it on, you'll feel where it's supposed to go. Nail polish doesn't make your nails dark at all. Try buying nail polish. That kind of polish actually strengthens nails. Smile

Hey girl! It's called TSS and you can talk to your doc more about the specifics. It's usually not too much of a risk, but definetely something to be cautious of.
