Puberty and Periods
MISS MYTH: I can't get pregnant during my period.
FEM FACT: Pregnancy can happen anytime, including during menstruation.
MISS MYTH: There's asbestos in tampons.
FEM FACT: Tampons are made from cotton and/or rayon—there's never been any asbestos in tampons.
MISS MYTH: A tampon can get lost or disintegrate in my body.
FEM FACT: There is no place for your tampon to go to get lost. Your cervix is too small to allow a tampon into the rest of your body, and a tampon is designed to absorb menstrual fluid while staying intact until you remove it. And it will not disintegrate.
