« Back to My Period Questions
Added November 22, 2011
I have been using tampons lately and this is my fourth period. It seems to me that when I pull the tampon out it's sorta hard to get out at first and when it does start to come out it really hurts me. I read an answer to a question related to mine, but it says to use a smaller absorbency tampon, but I'm using the smallest absorbency there is. I change mine every four hours. Are there any tips you can give me for a not-so-painful removal?
Yes, you can leave the tampon in for up to 8 hours. When you go to remove the tampon, pull it out at the same angle you used to insert it. This should make a difference in how it feels upon removal.
