    Re: daughter using tampons at 15 years old?

    in my opinion, you shouldn't have any worries. i got my period at age 10 (i was an early bloomer) and have always been using tampons. it causes no problems...just advise her to try to use a tampon that is right for her flow (no super-sizes if she doesn't have a heavy flow) and change them often...but I'm sure you already know all of that.

    I'm sixteen, I've been using tampons since I was fourteen. My period used to be irregular and I went on birth control for about 6 months to fix that, also when I was fourteen (problem had been going on since thirteen though). In my opinion tampons are fine as long as they don't hurt.

    i too have been using tampons since ive been 15. And I will never go back to using just pads. My sister is 13 and has been using them since her period started too, so I think its just fine!

    No worries!

    i'm 18 and have been using tampons since i was 13, and have had no problems. my mom and i both agree tampons are a hell of a lot better than pads.

    I started using tampons when I was 12 (now 30). Just make sure they aren't too big for what she needs and remember tampons can make cramps worse.

    I started my period when i was 13 and i started using tampons when I was 14. I think using tampons is fine. Just make sure she is carful about the right size and not leaving them in too long.

    I don't see anything wrong with it.

    im 14 and i'v been using tampons since i was like 12 so their totally fine. just do what the directions say and change them often because you don't want TSS.

    Re: daughter using tampons at 15 years old?

    in my humble opinion,whenever she's ready let her use them.i was 11 when mines came and i am 13 now and i still don't use them because i'm not ready and scared,but on the other hand my sister is 28 and she just started using them because she got over her fear.my middle sister used them at 12 because she was ready and still do at 21.
    i bet you are saying what do she know.(LOL)
