How to deal with embarrassing first-tampon questions

It’s important that your daughter feels comfortable asking questions when it comes to using a tampon for the first time. Our video can help…


In this edition of our “First Tampon Stories” video series, Shae admits she was confused about where exactly her tampon should go.

Luckily she had her older sister around to advise her, and it’s a good idea to make sure your daughter is comfortable asking questions like Shae’s, without embarrassment.

If your daughter’s at the age when she might consider using tampons, make sure you bring the topic up with her, as she will likely be too embarrassed to approach you first.

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
