I would love some advise,I am a specialist support worker in a mainstream school and I currently work with a recently diagnosed girl aged 12. She has started her periods which are very irregular the student is incrediable sensitive to her school clothing and certain materials that come into contact with her skin, she is struggling with using sanitary towels and is too young to start using tampon or a cup any advise please on other products.
We have looked at the period knickers and the eco friendly sanitary towels but she is also very unsettled with the sight of her period.
I was advised to start with tampons at 11 and I know of girls of 10 using them. Tampax make a mini one aimed at this market.
