Tampons !!?!???

I started my period a few cycles ago and it’s due again next weekend but I have my dance show over the same weekend and I’m not sure what to do because I have been wearing pads but I don’t want to because it will be big and bulky and I have a few quick changes and I don’t want people to see either . But I also don’t want to wear a tampon because lots of people say you shouldn’t wear a tampon on your first year of your period and I’m super scared to use it. What do I do ????

    I’m worried when I start… cause I complete in Gymnastics, and am worried about pads but tampons sound scary !

    Use Tampons if you are comfortable to do so. They won’t hurt you or damage you just because you haven’t had you period for a year yet. I actually had to use a tampon on my first cycle because I had nothing else! I would recommend trying a tampon before you recital so that you can become familiar with them but they are nothing to be worried about. And if you still don’t want to use a tampon just ware a pad nobody will judge because it is totally natural.  Hopefully this helps and good luck!  Use Tampons if you are comfortable to do so.

    Don’t worry, I used a tampon on the second day of my first period because we had to go swimming. Using a tampon isn’t scary and shouldn’t hurt so don’t be scared 🙂 xx Good luck!

    Don’t be worried about a tampon I’m sure in every women’s life time they would of ran into a situation where they would of had to use a tampon, I understand why people say you shouldn’t wear a tampon in the the first year of your period only because it might hurt a bit the first time you use one because you are stretching the skin but if you were to wait a year your body would stretch the skin itself but ask your mum they always have the best adobe on what to do if you don’t want to talk to your mum about it just wear a pad people shouldn’t be judging you about that and it just mean that you are healthy if you have your period it’s totally natural. i hope this helped and good luck xx

    I’m in a similar position, except I have no reason to really need to wear a tampon. I just want to wait until my period has settled into a pattern before a try tampons. Idk why. I’m weird. I guess I’m just nervous hahah
