Okay, So it's summer!! but unfortunately its also shark week :/ I talked to my mom about wearing Tampons and she said that I couldn't. So if i wanna do stuff like run, laugh really hard (which i do alot) and do splits and stuff like that, is there any way I can make it feel less awkward to do that stuff? thanks!!!!
Running and laughing hard shouldn't get in the way of anything unless you have a really heavy flow... I suggest you get Always Infinity pads because they're thin and they have great absorbency, they're awesome! Have a one on one with your mom and ask her why she doesn't like the idea of you wearing tampons. They don't make you lose your virginity, they will not break your hymen. You just have to make sure you change it after a couple hours to avoid Toxic Shock Syndrome (which is very rare).
I don't quite understand why she would disallow tampons. However, there are birth control pills that allow you to skip your period for three or more months in a row. You could approach your Mom with how you want to avoid problems with your period, and you know that there is a birth control pill that will allow 3 period-free months for the summer.
And if (after) she says NO WAY, then maybe the tampon solution won't be as bad.
Take care, and
