Tampon: Can I use it even for my first period?
Of course! Young women sometimes have apprehensions on the first try, but with practice, tampons quickly become easy to use (check out our detailed instructions) and are often found to be most practical, especially when you have an active lifestyle or for swimming. Before using tampons for the first time, read the instructions inside the box carefully.
There are many different tampon sizes that have different absorption levels (from “light” to “super plus”); you can pick the one that matches your flow. If you have just started getting your period, you might want to start with a lighter, smaller size. It is also possible to use more than one size of tampon within the same cycle since the blood flow varies from one day to the next (most often, the 2nd day is the heaviest).
