What is the best type of feminine hygiene sanitary product to use? How does a tampon fit in and out?
There are many different types of pads and tampons, and girls need to find the type they are most comfortable using. It's best to talk it over with a parent, older sister or cousin, school nurse or a trusted adult.
It is important to change sanitary products frequently - every 3 or 4 hours during the day. Menstrual fluid has no odour until it meets the air, however a pad or tampon left in place for too long can begin to smell and it can lead to infection.
Tampon packets contain Instructions (and pictures) for insertion. There is a large range of different types to choose from, including 'slim’ versions and some with applicators which will be best to use when a girl is just starting to use them for the first time. When a tampon is properly inserted it can't be felt at all.
