My thoughts as well. Honestly I can't even imagine how a virgin grown woman would use one. But then I always could only manage those tampons that had the most posh and smooth applicators and still often inserted them at the wrong and painful angle. There have also been a number of threads here where woman (who are very comfortable with their bodies and accustomed to their periods) talked about how messy these could be to empty and how knowing when they are full can take some getting used to. So for a teen with a heavy period, especially one in public school, I wouldn't personally be considering it.
Deodorants, Oils, and Diapersticks!
If you always thought you sweat or smelled too strongly to use natural deodorants, my unusually strong but gentle deos may be for you!
