Ok don't laugh but how do I wear a tampon? And can I wear it at night when I'm sleeping and all day etc? Is it better than pads? Never worn one
Tampons are safe: Tampons are very safe when used correctly and often more convenient than pads. When learning how to insert a tampon, read through the guide that comes in the box. It is very helpful to put a hand mirror on the floor and stand over it, so you can actually see what you are doing. It is okay to wear tampons at night. Never leave a tampon in for more than eight hours without changing to a new one. ...Read more

Emla (lidocaine and prilocaine) & clear cover: ~1 prior to planned IV likely=better option; greatly reduces local skin sensation; primary basis of discomfort. However, will need to plan & persistently request/insist on this in advance else rarely done or Emla (lidocaine and prilocaine) on hand plus must be applied to planned IV location & kept in position for about an hour prior using a clear cover; Opsite or clear plastic like food wrap.
