Some solutions for common worries
A lot of girls worry about using a tampon for the first time because they think it could get lost inside them.
In reality, the opening to the cervix is smaller than the head of a matchstick, so it is impossible for a tampon to get through. Another fear is that you can lose your virginity to a tampon, which is totally untrue. You can break your hymen doing gymnastics, riding horses or during other activities, but you will only lose your virginity when you have sex for the first time.
When you first start your period, it often doesn’t stick to a specific schedule or come when you expect it to. In fact, it might never become completely regular! If you’re worried about having an accident at school or in public, Lil-lets pantyliners can give you that extra feeling of safety. They are available in different types and lengths, and can be worn every day.
