She's 17, used tampons regularly and doesn't seem to have fever. Nausea but didn't throw up
Expert:  medicaldoctor replied 1 month ago.

This could just be a period pain.With no fever and no discharge there is not anything to be worried about.

She should take ibuprofen 200 mg pills orally 3 to 4 times a day.This would relieve her pain.

Periods can become painful in teenagers at times.

If her pain does not improve with ibuprofen or if there is any fever then she should remove the tampon and use pads.

Do let me know if you have any queries.

Thank you
