Im a dancer and im 14 so i really need help because tomorrow i have practice and i dont want to be wearing a gross pad while im dancing. This is only my 2nd period. I think i use kotex im not sure (they came in a package my mom bought and they dont say the name on the boxes because she took them out of the package.).

Update: oh and by the way, the ones i use are actually really small length wise.... i dont know if there is any smaller ones that i could try or any more thinner ones.
Update 2: and yes, i have relaxed majorly. ive mad sure ive been relaxed and ive tried bunches of tips but the dang thing just wont go in!
