    The first time I tried to use a tampon, I was very very scared so because of that I did it wrong, the day after that I tried it again but with an applicator and I did it! I'm 11 lmao😂

    I used a tampon for the first time yesterday at a friends house. My mom doesn’t use tampons ( except for like when she goes in water ) but she still buys me pads. I play a sport and it’s usually a little tougher playing a sport with a pad because when you’re moving blood is just flowing and if it’s a heavy day I can feel it flow, which I don’t mind unless I’m exercising. Anyways I was very rushed and I figured I would try it. First, from the outside of the wrapper I felt it was very hard, like I felt plastic. I thought to myself that it was going to be really uncomfortable if I was sticking something like that up my vagina. When I unwrapped it i was confused, because there was this blue thing and the white part was inside of it with a string attached. I then realized it was the applicator ( didn’t know it was called that until this video ) and it just held the cotton part. I had a little trouble getting it out of there ( I guess I pulled the strong the wrong way or something, idr ) but I got it out in a number of seconds. It looked small. Like I said, I was in kind of a rush because I had to get to practice so I didn’t question it and just stuck it up there. I didn’t try looking, I just went bam ( I’ve put fingers up there so it’s not like my hymen was breaking ). It didn’t hurt and I did have to push it in a little, but maybe I pushed it to far? Idk if I did but the string was still showing sooo. I wore a pad just in case, I guess I was kinda of testing it. When I got up I felt it in there. Like it didn’t feel uncomfortable but at the same time I still felt that something was there. At practice it didn’t bother me that much. When I ran I wasn’t focused on it but when I rowed ( I do rowing ) I definitely felt it. Cut to when I took it out, it was very bloody. The blood leaked into my pad and the string was covered in blood too. It just like slipped out when I pulled on the string. The tampon was short and I thought it would be longer, maybe it was just that type? But given that it was in there for less than 8 hours and it still leaked, I either put it in wrong ( I think I did it right ) or probably should’ve went with one that absorbed more? I think I would stick with pads for normal activities and maybe I can try to get used to it for sports and going into water. Usually when I was on my period before and wanted to go for a swim I would just go in and made sure that when I got out I put a pad on immediately. Here’s my review lol: Pain? No Hard time using? No Efficiency? Ehh Comfortability? Ehh Do I prefer it over pads? Not rlly Would I try it again? Probably ⭐️⭐️⭐️ 3/5 stars

    Tampons are amazing for being able to shower whenever you want rather than having to weight for your period to calm down for a moment. You can also go swimming whilst on your period with tampons and at night, tampons are amazing as we move around a lot and there’s either no leakage or very little compared to pads. Unfortunately, not everyone has the ability to use a tampon if they have health conditions that may step in the way such as vulvodynia or vaginismus s

    I think I used pads on my first two cycles and then switched to tampons. And now about 13 years later, I switched to the menstrual cup. 🤷‍♀️ I still use tampons for when I forget I'm getting my period and didn't bring my cup 😂

    Tampons make craps worse. Also I hope they had a chair or something back there. I’ve never gotten one in from standing.

    Julia Victoria It depends on your body but for me it makes them worse but it’s worth it in my opinion. I hate the feeling of pads.
