Why won't my mom let me use tampons?
yeah awkward question. but I need answers. I'm 14 and I've had my period for about 5 months now. I've been using pads and stuff but when it comes to doing sports I HATE wearing a pad! it's SOOO uncomfortable! I'm in track and I'm very competitive and I don't want to slow down in it. but when I asked my mom if I could use one she said it was too early to and that I would have to deal with a pad rite now till i have my period for a YEAR! but I don't want to wait I know everything about tampons. I know about TSS i know it's deadly but rare. I've read so many articles and informations pages online about how to insert it. different types of sizes, when you should take it out and how long you leave it in. the whole thing. she also asked me why I'm wanting to do everything so quick and stuff. I just don't want to feel uncomfortable.
