Case Study - Tampons

A deaf Muslim teenage girl asked “will I get pregnant if I get a kiss?” and “am I pregnant because I have a period?”.  She felt so worried and confused about why she had started her period. Her mother just told her to “wear the pads” and no further explanation was given.  She felt anxious and needed a clear explanation on how you actually can or can’t get pregnant and what periods were.
