How do I insert a tampon?

I can’t insert a tampon without it hurting. Is something wrong? How do I get it right? Tampons can be tricky at first, but they shouldn’t...

when is the age to start wearing tampons?? what angle are you suppoused to go? i know you are suppoused to aim for your lower back, but it doesn't really work!!!

 

Hey girl!  Some gals go for the tampon the first time they have their period, but there are also grown women that don't wear them!  The right age is whenever you feel comfortable with one inside you.  Instructions are here: http://www.girlslife.com/post/2009/06/23/007-Period-Advice.aspx

the other day i was putting in a tampon (im on swim team) and i went to the bathroom with it in during the meet. and it fell out like instantly. am i doing something wrong?




Hey girl, tampons come out easily when it's time to change them, but they shouldn't literally fall out of you. You may have inserted it incorrectly and it wasn't very secure. In each box of tampons is a paper explaining how to insert a tampon, so read up on that and find a way to use one comfortably and securely. Good luck!

so....i tried tampons and it wouldn't go in!! like, i got it in more than halfway (eew) and it's like it got stuck and didn't want to go in any farther?? i really need to learn how to do this cuz i hate pads!! Frown




Hey girl, you were probably inserting the tampon incorrectly. It takes a lot of practice to learn how to insert and wear a tampon comfortably. When you get a box of tampons there is a piece of paper in it that gives you directions on how to insert it. It might take a few tries, but you'll eventually get it. Good luck!

MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD!!!!!!!!!!!!It's summer and I've had my period for almost a year. I want to go swimming but every time I try to put a tampon in it's like it wont go in. I think i'm putting it in the right hole but it just won't go in! I've tried a bunch of times and i'm using the smallest applicator that you can buy. I don't know what to do!!

 

Hey chica! Tampons can be tricky at first, and it takes some time to get used to them. Check out these tips, and you'll be swimming in no time!

mod mod mod! Will it hurt at all when you use a tampon for the first time? My sister said it really hurt the first couple times, is that normal?

 

Hey! yeah it's totally normal, but with practice and a little time it won't hurt at all. Just remember: if it still hurts when its in, it's not in right and you should take it out.

MOD MOD MOD!!! I've read everything i can about tampons. a few of my friends use them but everytime we plan for a fun swimming party or sumthing, i cant go cuz mother nature decides to crash the party!!! i wanna be able to push her out. but even the direction u guys gave me scared me so much. im really scared like really really. my mom doesnt use one or like them. plus i asked her abt padded bras and she freaked out. i cant ask her. but i dont wanna discomfort ne one else. HELP ME!!!!!!im weally scared. Cry

 

Hey girl, I'm sorry about the tough sitch - I know tampons can be tough at first!  They really do get easier with practice, though.  If you can't sort it out yourself or with the articles, it would be great if you could talk with someone else - a sister, cousin, aunt, or another female you trust who's been there.  There's probably someone who would be really happy to help, not discomforted!  While you're still adjusting, see if there's a way you can still join in the fun.  Even if you can't swim, maybe you can come along (in shorts) and lounge by the pool, or meet up with your buds for ice cream after.

MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD!!!!!!!!!!
so ive tried using tampons for the first time because i need to learn how b4 my next period cuz i will be at camp and i will need tampons there. So im relaxing, putting it at the right angle, whatever, but whenever i get it in, its rlly uncomfortable, im using the smallest size possible but whenever i put one in it feels like its falling out and when i sit or run or jump, it gets rlly uncomfy and if i shift too much it rlly hurts!! it feels like its not in all the way, but when i put it in, it is as far as it can go. help!!!!!!!!!!

 

you can try getting tampon lubricant to make it easier to slide in, so that you may be able to push it in farther.

i think the whole tampon thing just needs some getting used to, since its such a weird feeling at first

MOD MOD MOD MOD! ok, so im having my birthday party this weekend, and its gonna be up @ a lake, and i said we are going swimming probably. But i just got my period yesterday. my mom said i could just wear a pad in my swimsuit, but im afraid everyone will be able to tell, so i mentioned a tampon, but im kinda scared to use one. i've never used one before and i was thinking about just using it for the swimming portion of my party.... What do you think about using it for the first time when we swim? I don't want to be the only one not swimming @ my own party... Frown
THANKS! Smile




hey girly,

Using a tampon is no biggie. For your first time using one, you'll probably want to use the smallest ones you can find ("lite" ones) and a plastic applicator, since that'll make it easier! Just relax and follow the directions for inserting it on the box!
