Can I practice using a tampon before I get my period? I want to try it, but
I'm nervous and don't know if it's safe. – Catelyn
You can practice inserting a tampon
before getting your period. But it's probably better (and easier) to wait until your
period comes. That's
because blood flow moistens the vagina and helps a tampon slide in easier. Without
this extra lubrication, it can be harder to put a tampon in. If you do practice inserting
a tampon before your period, don't forget to remove it right away.
