My one daughter tried a tampon the first time last week and it took 3 tries then she finally was ok with it once in. She wanted to go swimming so that was the only way so she used the once I have pink OBs. Now my other daughter has her period this week and she is 15 and is not sure she wants to attemp trying one but she really wants to go swimming so she is thinking about trying one. What is the best kind to try? I remember not liking them at age 13 so waited till I got older I just did not swim. Now old I like OB it does not have that applicator and is easy for me to insert. Any suggestions on better brands for teens or all they all the same.

Only ones that has the end that you insert rounded. My best friend always used those cheap cardboard ones that are just open at the top and they were not cool for first time tampon users. I like playtex sport... I dont' know, I only have to use like, one tampon per period though.

The only comfortable one for me is Tampax Pearl. All others you can feel and I feel like I'm walking like a penguin..

The first tampons I used were OB and I almost never use any other ones.  I can't get the hang of the applicator thing, I usually wind up taking the tampon out of it and then putting it in.
