Tampon trouble


I used a tampon for the first time, and I couldn't get it out. It was a really small one, but I couldn't get it out and it started hurting really badly. I had to have my sister help, and it took 2 1/2 hours. Is my vagina too small? Do I need to see a doctor?

Don’t freak out, girlie, what happened to you is totally normal. When you first start using a tampon, it always feels awkward, whether you’re putting it in or taking it out. The good thing is that if you got it in, it’s gonna come out one way or another. Your vagina isn’t too small. Chances are you were just freakin’ out a bit, which makes it harder to tug it out. Here are a few tips to help you master the tampon…

Practice
If it takes you ages to insert and remove tampons, try practicing it when you’ve got a block of free time one afternoon. If you don’t have your period but still want to practice, try spreading a little Vaseline or another lubricant over the applicator to help it slide in with ease.

Relax
When you begin to freak out, your muscles down their tense up, making it difficult to put a tampon in or get it out. Take a deep breath and consciously think about relaxing your muscles.

Change positions
It’s easier to insert and remove tampons in various positions, like squatting or standing bent over with a foot propped up on a bathtub or toilet. The pamphlet that comes with a box of tampons usually has some suggestions if you’re having trouble.

There are conditions you could have that prevent you from inserting a tampon, but if you can get it in there, I guarantee you can get it out. It’s uncomfortable at first, so try to stick with the smaller tampons until you get used to the sensation. Good luck girlie!
