Busting the “tampons are painful” myth

Your daughter has probably been told at some point that tampons hurt, but we’re here to help explain that shouldn’t be the case.


In this edition of our “First Tampon Stories” video series, Mia is so concerned about tampon pain, she wants to design an app to help pinpoint the pain and the problem.

But her mum explains, just as you will likely need to do to your daughter, that any pain can be easily resolved as it’s for one of three reasons:

1. The tampon isn’t fully inserted

2. She is trying to remove it too soon

I really enjoyed taking part and trying out Always Discreet. I love that I can finally feel comfortable running around with my children or even going to the gym. 10/10 from me and my friends as it's left us not just with security but we also feel finally confident, so top marks from us!

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to try Always Discreet. I feel more comfortable now and even my family and friends have been able to talk openly about this. I can now play with my boys on the trampoline without worrying now, it's all the simple things I couldnt/wouldn't do before but now I can. Thank you x
