Tampon use: When you first start using tampons you may find it easier to insert a “slim” tampon with a smooth plastic applicator that has a rounded tip. Recommend that you avoid super tampons with cardboard applicators when you first start. There are may u tube videos that provide instruction on proper tampon insertion. Change tampons roughly every 4 to 6 hours. Mom's can usually give advice about tampon use.
