3. My first menstrual period . . . What sould I use?
When you start your first menstrual period and you are not sure what you should use, it is advisable to use a sanitary pad as this is easier and more comfortable then a tampon. All you have to do is peel off the sticky label on the back and place the sanitary pad in your panties. Most sanitary pads now come with wings and you fold them over the sides of your panties which helps to keep the sanitary pad in place as you go about your daily activities.
You can buy sanitary pads, tampons and feminine hygiene care products in your local health food shop, pharmacy or online.
