For parents: Feminine hygiene products
There are many choices out there, but most women use tampons or pads. She could also choose to vary the feminine hygiene products she uses according to her activities, her blood flow and depending on how comfortable she is with her body.
Whatever option she chooses, remember your daughter must change her feminine hygiene products regularly. Leaving any product in place for a long time allows bacteria to grow, which may cause odours and even infections. As there are many brands and products available, you might find it difficult to give your daughter advice and tips.
