I have had my period since November 29th, 2012. I'm about to be 13 in May. The night before I had this weird feeling that I was about to get my first period. I've been having it every other month for about 7 days each. My period has been pretty regular and now I am thinking about using tampons. I live with my dad but go to my mother's every other weekend. She is pregnant so she can't really show me how to do it and she can't apply it for me... I am really nervous and I am afraid that it's going to hurt. Will I lose my virginity to a tampon? If so then I won't use one until I am married. (I know this is a lot to read and I am sorry, but I really need some advice. I'm scared.) I don't know how to apply it either. I have just gotten comfortable with pads but now I am going to try out for softball next start of school in 8th grade. I have a semi-heavy flow but I won't know for sure until I am regulated after 2 years. (I know TMI) Please help? I have anxiety about this...
