How can I convince my mom to let me use tampons?
it's not because she's a "religious freak" or whatever, it's because I'm "too young" but I'm 13 and all my friends use tampons instead of pads. sometimes when I start my period unexpectedly at school I'll borrow a tampon and its so much easier than pads, and my period seems to go by faster and I have an EXTREMELY heavy flow and I almost ALWAYS bleed through pads. how can I convince her? I feel like wearing pads is very unsanitary and it feels like a diaper.
