How Do I Use A Tampon?

I have my period and I want to try tampons because I do competition dance and pads are extremely uncomfortable and I don't necessarily like the idea of sitting in my own blood. But I have never tried tampons before. So, I was wondering - is it better to try them for the first time while you're on your period or before it comes again? I've heard it's better for both. Please help!

Getting Your Period - What Products to Use

Learning all about puberty and the world of menstruation can be pretty overwhelming - and the thought of using tampons makes it even scarier. But there is really no reason to be freaked. Tampons are perfectly safe and quite easy to use once you get the hang of it. Check out these tampon facts before you try using one for the first time.

Facts and Fiction About Tampons

  • Only use tampons during your period
  • Be sure to always wash your hands before inserting a tampon
  • Change your tampon regularly - at least once every four to eight hours. If you can still see white fibers when you remove your tampon, you probably need to switch to a tampon with a lower absorption
  • Never use more than one tampon at a time. If you are concerned about leaking, double up by wearing a pad as well, until you are able to find the right tampon absorbency for your body
  • Tampons come in light flow, regular flow, heavy flow and often extra-heavy flow absorption levels. There are even junior flow products for teens
  • You do not have to remove a tampon before peeing; nothing will happen if you get the string of the tampon wet
  • You cannot "lose" a tampon in your body but you do want to always remove them to avoid any build up of bad bacteria.

My dad and I are kind of estranged, we haven't spoken in a year. So my mom decides it would be a good idea to let him message me. He texted me while I was at school and now I have no idea what to do. All he said was 'Hi _, how is school?'. Do I reply? Do I not? If I do, what do I say? My mom and grandparents are no help, they just cracked jokes about it. KidzWorld has helped me with a hell lot of things, I better not be let down this time.

Just act like you were introducing him as one of your friends. Be yourself, wear stuff that’s comfortable. It’s okay to be nervous because everyone will be. Just hang out and have fun.

one day I was eating lunch with my friends and two boys, (I'm a girl). when one boy told his friend and some other people, everyone but me who he had a crush on. At the end of lunch someone told me and it was me, later on he confirmed it and his friend told us he was on the verge of tears because I found out. people were telling everyone he liked me. Earlier I told him I liked him as not to make him feel bad, he told his friend who told everyone. soon rumors were started my best friend and his had teamed up to make an unstoppable rumor making and spreading team.  on monday it was our all day field trip and he needed to tell me something so on the way back we sat together across from his friend. She asked him if he still liked me. I covered my eyes but could still see and he was saying no but nodding his head. I told him to just tell me and he said yes. By then the rumors were getting really bad so in order to stop them we started hanging out, and became best friends. its summer now and we text each other all the time but we are just friends the rumors have blown over but now another has become true. through all of this,  I really like him now. I don't know I f he still likes me but I know that I really want him too because I really like him now! What do I do? Please help me! I'm so lost! this is all like a nightmare! what if it starts again. What do I do!
