How Do I Use a Tampon?

 
 

Where do I insert a tampon? I have not had my period yet but I do not want to ask my mom. Please help!

-Tampon Troubles
 
Dear Tampon Troubles,
 
Inserting a tampon for the first time doesn’t have to be a mystery—especially when you have help. Everyone finds it a bit confusing the first time, and then it’s like brushing your teeth or anything else. I asked my mom for guidance and she was totally happy to help.
 
When the time comes, it may not be so bad to ask your mom for some tips—after all, she’s been doing this for years. But there are directions in the box of tampons, and possibly even a diagram. The directions will probably say to insert the tampon at a certain angle, but keep in mind that our bodies are all different, so you should try different angles until you get it lined up correctly to go in without pain.
 
All you’ve gotta do is insert the applicator, holding on to the top half, and push the bottom half in (that pushes the actual tampon into your vagina) and then pull out the cardboard or plastic applicator . Make sure the string is hanging out of your vagina so that you can pull it out again. You can also use a tampon without an applicator, but that may be trickier for the first time.
 

If you do feel pain, don’t force it. Maybe you want to start with pads and work up to tampons. And asking for help is not as terrible as it may seem!
