Well, she's thirteen. She's old enough to start wearing them.You should discuss it with her. Ask her why she thinks she needs to make the switch. It's possible that she has heard a lot of misinformation about tampons and this could be your opportunity to educate her.Maybe pads are uncomfortable for her and she wants to try another alternative. Let her know you're available to talk.Plenty of thirteen year olds use tampons. There's nothing wrong with it! Really it's just about preference.
Quoting Buggy979:My 12 yr old has been wearing them since She was 10. I don't understand what the big deal is. Who wants their cookie to be wet all day from blood and a big pad between the legs. Ewww and the oder.
Quoting sahlady:Sure why not. It is summer she probably doesn't want to sit on the sidelines while her friends are having fun in the water.
I was using them aged 9.
