Ehh, my first tampon.... You don't want to hear about it, but I will suggest arranging things so she'll be at home when she needs to remove her first tampon. (And I've heard some girls have trouble urinating with a tampon in, so you might not want to count on her being able to wear one all day before coming home.)
I don't have teenagers but I have recently helped my 12 year old niece through this...
My only real advice is to let her know what it's meant to look and feel like on the outside of her body... I know I thought that half of the tampon was meant to be outside of my body. Terrible..
I would also recommend using an applicator too..
And practicing far before swim class time.
Sorry I couldn't be of more help!!
Happy Vegetarian Gal and Techie Man- Newly Wed!!! Expecting "Albi" Christmas 2012
Looking forward to
