I'm ready for tampons. How do I tell Mom?
I want to start using tampons but I don’t know how to tell my mom when we’re at the store. Can you tell me what to say?
For some reason, it can be really awkward to talk to moms about body stuff. After all, anything you’re going through, she’s already gone through. Your mom is gonna understand more than anyone else and chances are, she wants you to come to her with your questions.
In order to avoid an in-store tampon convo, just grab your mom before you leave or on the way to the store and tell her you’d like to pick up some tampons while you’re there. It might feel embarrassing enough to buy tampons or pads, so avoid having that discussion in public, too.
Your mom probably won’t think it’s weird at all that you want to start using tampons, and if you need pointers on how to use them, that’s something you should also ask her. That’s what moms are for!
