What type of pads should you start out with
I started with EVERYTHING. lol I had lots of pads in my top drawer because I was 'prepared'. When I started I hated pads. So try Kotex or Always,those are good brands. Sometimes it depends on your flow,though. After awhile of havingyour period,like on the fifth month,try tampons. You can be more active with them:cheerleading,gymnastics,swimming,soccer,etc etc.
"Always" is a good brand. They have different sizes and everything . Good Luck!
I use always but now im going to start using tampons
