Start out with the regular size tampon. Read the directions carefully and you should be okay. As far as shaving your pubic hair, who says you had too? If you do, take a small pair of scissors and snip the longer ones before you actually grab for the razor.
Don't be embarrased but you can lay on the bed or floor in front of your mirror and shave, just so you can see what your doing. As you get experienced with this, you will be able to do it in the shower by just bending over. Some women have more pubic hair than others. Some have it closer to their rectums as well. That's why you should use a mirror until you get to know yourself as far as shaving. You may nip yourself once in a while, don't panic, it will heal itself.
Once you start to shave, your going to have to keep it up. When it begins to grow back it is very itchy. Do you honestly need to shave or can you get away with a trim?

definitely stick to trimming - shaving makes you itch like crazy!

as for tampons what bbfeet9 said is right - start with the smallest one for your flow and get ones with applicators - makes it alot easier to get them in place!

Hello. Maybe you should start using tampons by choosing the regular size of them in the first place. I don't think that there is necessary shaving yourself in order to use tampons, you can easily do that without shaving your pubic hair. Here is why -  this is not your main issue and it's probably a bad idea to do that because when you already have your period you will feel some discomfort of having hair grown back in, etc. It can be really bad, uncomfortable, and it can be really bad especially for the first time. Avoid it.

So what are you going to do? ask another member of the swim group to sell you a tampon, about 25 cents will do, if you need it? buy your own? or not swim at all?
Go Luck and enjoy your swims.
