I'm 16 and just got my period. I was wondering if there was anything I should know just to be prepared. I don't have any one to ask except me dad and he said he didn't know.

Well, lilac, you've already asked about tampon insertion, and we answered you as best we could. For more information, there's a HUGE article all about menstruating right here: On the Rag
