I was thinking about trying tampons and wanted to knowdoes it hurt everyone the first time? I haven't tried putting a tampon in yet because I was too afraid of what everyone was telling me.

 

Can you give me some advice?

---

It can be uncomfortable to learn any new technique, and tampon insertion is a new technique for you. It may or may not be painful, but a totally inserted tampon is not felt; and therefore, is very comfortable. After a few times, the insertion becomes automatic, and you really don't feel anything. Tampon insertion should be tried when you have your period.

 

http://www.beinggirl.com/article/how-to-use-a-tampon will help with insertion.

 

Try Tampax Pearls regulars. We hear from girls who tell us these are the easiest to insert! Read the instructions carefully, and look at the diagram pictures. Notice the way the vagina slants toward the back of the body, so you need to use a slight angle. Also notice that the tampon is positioned all the way inside the vaginapast the muscle at the entrance. You may need to use a little twisting motion. Remember to RELAX and take your time. It may take a little practice. Once you get the hang of it, it's easy!

 

You should be using the lowest absorbency tampon for your flow. If you find your tampon fully saturated before 4 hours, you should be using the next absorbent size. If you remove the tampon at 8 hours and still see white fiber on the tampon, your tampon is too absorbent...drop down one absorbency for the next time.

 

Good luck,

Your BeingGirl Experts

Keep practicing to put a tampon in!! It took me a couple tries to put it in! And now I'm an expert doing it!! I'd recommend tampon pearl or Tampax radiant!! The applicator is so easy to use!!! Keep trying!! And when people say it hurts to shove up there, it does not! If you can't get the whole applicator up there, your probably hitting your hymen. Every girl gets a hymen. A hymen is a thin membrane almost at the top of your vagina. You can get it cut, but I didn't cause I kept on trying to push it up there, and finally it went up!!!

My first tampon experience I didn't put it in far enough and it hurts to pull the dirty tampon out.

I started my FIRST period on June 11th, I was supposed to start around last Thursday. I was wondering if it's usual to have a irregular period. Some advice would be helpful.
