Hi!! So I’m 16 and I’ve never had a tampon in (cause when I was 7 I read an article in a magazine about TSS and it scared me for life) and I realized that I’m going to have my period while I’m on a beach vacation.

My family spent a lot of money on this vacation and I don’t want to seem like I’m not enjoying it just because my body got mad at me for not having a baby, so I was wondering if a tampon can get stuck or the string breaks off? Or is it supposed to hurt? My anxiety is going haywire over this.

Thanks so much for your help!!! Hope you have an awesome day!!
