How do I tell my mom I want to use tampons instead of pads?

 
No need to be embarrassed. Your mom has probably been using tampons for decades, so this stuff is like talking about the weather. She’ll appreciate that you came to her for advice, says Dr. Gilda Carle, psychologist and author of The Teen Guide to Dating. “She wants you to feel good about yourself, so she’ll try to help you,” Dr. Carle says.

Don’t worry about the myths you’ve heard about tampons—they don’t mean you’re sexually active in any way. To make it easier, tell your mom, “I read that a doctor says tampons are a nice option for girls who are active or don’t want to wear bulky pads.” Then add, “I also heard some are made especially for young teens. Could we them next time we’re at the store together?” Take a deep breath, and try to be comfortable. It’s worth it—tampons are convenient and can make life less messy when you want to go swimming!
