Question: Tips on personal care for young women

This is not related to skin, but I'm hoping that as a GP and a woman, you could help. My daughter has turned 13. When would be the best age for her to try tampons? She has terrible mood swings when menstruating and becomes nervous about "accidents"...


Thank you for your question. It’s actually fine to start using tampons from whatever age you start to menstruate. You would obviously use the smallest ones in the range for such a young girl, but it is absolutely safe for her to start using these if she is comfortable to do so.
