The tampon is one of the most convenient menstrual products. If you are just getting used to having a period, the thought of inserting a tampon into your vagina may be very intimidating. But tampons are a very popular way to manage your menstrual flow. You just need to understand how they work and get comfortable with the idea of using them. The convenience of tampons has been recognized for centuries. Historical records suggest that these original tampons were made out of softened papyrus plant.

Tampons are used for menstrual flows to absorb the blood during the days of a period. Much like sanitary pads, they are a blend of rayon and cotton that collect any blood and fluid flowing out of the vagina. Once inserted, a cord extends out of the body for easy removal. Tampons can also come without applicators and are inserted using the index finger. Young girls and teens generally find tampons with applicators easier to use when they begin their period.

What are tampons?
Once you get your period, you'll need to use something to soak up the menstrual blood. Your choices are a pad or a tampon. If you've ever seen them on the store shelves, you know there are many varieties to choose from. How do you know which one is right for you? Pads are rectangles of absorbent material that you stick to the inside of your underwear. Some have extra material on the sides called "wings" that fold over the edges of your underwear to better hold the pad in place and prevent leakage. Sometimes, pads are called sanitary pads or sanitary napkins.
Is that true or can I use a tampon? Any girl who has her period can use a tampon. Tampons work just as well for girls who are virgins as they do for girls who have had sex. And even though using a tampon can occasionally cause a girl's hymen to stretch or tear, it does not cause a girl to lose her virginity. Only having sex can do that. Whether a girl decides to use a tampon or a pad is completely up to her.
