I was never comfortable using one, but I have plans to go swimming this weekend and I guess I need to learn how to use one.
Is it weird that I don't know how to use one and am a little nervous to?
Also, any tips on how to use one? I feel so ridiculous asking this! :/ lol

It's your body. You don't have to do anything to it that you don't want to do. However, if you do plan to swim on your period, the only sanitary option for you is to use a tampon. Instructions can be found on the package, or on the internet (just look up how to use one, some have pictures for more accurate explanations). The only other thing is if you are taking birth control, you can skip the sugar pill and keep taking your birth control to avoid getting your period when you plan on swimming, but if that's not an option, then practice at home first, and perhaps in a public bathroom once so you're not nervous, and enjoy your swim.0
