Hi. My daughter wants to use tampons, but I’m afraid that it will take away her virginity. I have heard that if you use tampons long enough and if you do the splits and active stuff like that, you can lose your virginity. Is this all true and should I let my daughter use tampons?
Virginity has to do with sexual relations...not using tampons or doing splits. Many young girls start using tampons early on because they are swimmers or athletes. The hymen, which partially covers and protects the opening to the vagina, is so fragile that it is stretched or torn during many activities. I see no reason why your daughter couldn’t use a tampon if she can read and understand the instructions for insertion and safe use. The decision is yours and hers.
