Ive attempted using tampons and they totally freak me out! I always end up having to have my mom help me put them in or take them out. Its super embarrassing to my self esteem. I try to relax as much as I can but theyre scary. I feel like i'm too small "down there" for the tampon to fit. They generally hurt more when i take them out but are just as scary when i try to put them in. I'm also super sensitive there to begin with. I would stick with pads for a few months then try again, but I'm starting my school swim team in two weeks. Is it possible that I am "too small" right now? Are there any super small tampons? Is it the sensitivity that makes them hurt?
(PS im 14 and have only had my period four times and im starting my fifth tomorrow. Please Help!)
