I'm having trouble with tampons. When i practice putting it in at home it works, but whenever i really need to put one in fast (like at camp a few weeks ago) i can never do it! any advice? also, whenever i shave the upper half of my legs i get red itchy bumps. what should i do?




Hey girlie,

Take your time, take a deep breath, and relax! You're putting pressure on yourself to rush and get the tampon in, which only makes it harder to insert it. Over time, you'll get so much better at putting in the tampon when you're pressed for time - but, for now, try not to worry about being done really quick. And if you think about it, being home and being in public aren't very different - you might be less comfortable in an unfamiliar place, but you can still take your time and get it in there right Smile

I have gotten this bloody discharge in my underwear like three times this year. I am confused if this is my period or not. I am 15 and having been getting normal discharge for like a year. When am i going to get my period.? Thanks.

 

Hey girl! This sounds like your period, and you're the right age to be starting.  Is it coming at about the same time every month? How long does it last? Those can be hints as to whether it's your period or something else that you need to get checked out.  I'd talk to your doc.  They can also clue you in on if you're going to get your period soon (if you haven't already). xoxo

so, i have had my period for a little over half a year now and have used pads since I started. I read online about menstrual cups which are supposed to make your period waaayyy easier by not forcing you to carry around extra materials so I bought one but I am having alot of trouble putting it in! help! and also, I have been having a very light, dark brown period for the past few days which is not normal at all for me! i'm sort of worried but I don't want to worry my mom about it.




Hey babe, sorry it's so tricky to put the cup in, but just read the directions carefully and be patient. You'll get it. And about your period, don't stress. Periods can be funky and irregular for the first two years after your first one, so just ride this one out. It'll straighten itself out soon.

Megan 328,
no, you cant wear a pad in the pool. think of it this way, a pad absorbs any liquid it comes in contact with. itll swell up like a diaper right when you step in the water and wont have any more room 2 absorb what you want it to. if you dont wear tampons, try 'em! they arent as bad as you think...like at all they r really nice actuallyTong hope this helped! Smile

dear Piano player114,
if she is a very trusty friend you can tell her that your on your period and it might leak through onto the sheets. Or you can wear overnight pads i prefer u by kotex

I read in Girl's Life's latest issue that a girl put on a tampon and had possibly broke her hymen. Now I'm afraid to use tampons. Is there a way to possibly try and avoid breaking it when I get my period?

 

hey! well, since you can't really see down there, there's no guarantee. In my opinion that sounds extremely rare and unlikely. I've heard of some girls breaking their hymens while horsebackriding. and that's way more intense than inserting a tampon. I'm not saying it's impossible, but I wanted you to know that probably won't happen.

Last month I had a really heavy period and at night it leaked onto my bed. This month I am going to be at a friends house while on my period. What if it is heavy and leaks onto her sheets?

Girls should be checked for breast cancer routinely because they can get it just like older women.
