why do tampons hurt me so much
When used correctly, tampons shouldn t hurt or feel uncomfortable. If it s in right, you actually
shouldn t feel anything at all. So, one of three things is most likely happening here: you re not relaxed enough down there, you re not putting the tampon in exactly right, or you re using the wrong kind of tampon. Using a tampon for the first time can be tricky. Many girls have trouble with them in fact, some girls try for months or years before they can successfully use a tampon. So please don t feel like you re weird because you re having trouble! It s totally normal. If your tampon hurts going in or coming out, it could be because you re not relaxed down there. When your muscles down there are tense, the area becomes smaller, if you will, making it difficult to put things in there or take them out. Putting a tampon inside of you requires you to be calm and relaxed.
Open your legs wide and squat slightly to get a tampon in or out with ease. If your tampon feels uncomfortable once it s in down there, it could be one of two things: either you re using the wrong size (this could also account for it hurting coming out), or you didn t push it in enough. If it feels like it s going to fall out, you most certainly did not push it in far enough it was probably in an awkward spot. To put a tampon in, spread your legs and squat a little or sit on a toilet bowl. Put the applicator in as much as you can, and then push the end allllll the way up until you can t push it anymore. Then slowly take the plastic applicator out. If it feels like it s going to fall out, simply pull it out and start over with a new tampon. Once it s out of the applicator, it s nearly impossible to get it back in. If your tampon is the wrong size, that could also be causing you pain and discomfort.
Unless your flow is heavy, try using a regular or light tampon. These are smaller and slimmer and will go in and out easier. Don t use supers unless you have a very heavy flow. I would recommend always starting with regulars until you re more comfortable using tampons. Also keep in mind that if your flow is very light, any kind of tampon might feel a little rough coming out. Lastly, you might want to try a tampon with a plastic applicator rather than a cardboard one. Tampax makes tampons with cardboard applicators, and the applicators can hurt a little bit plastic is much smoother. In the end, remember that it may take some time to get used to using tampons, and that s okay. Don t let it discourage you! You ll get there, I promise. take care, Heather Whats on your mind?

Some girls have what are known as strands which is extra tissue down the middle - often called a separate hymen; this can make inserting a tampon painful and difficult; but a strand is usually flexible and many girls do manage to get it in one side of the strand of the other. And it can be hard to get out - often breaking the strand - which isn t intensely painful but frightening. After - you may still have trouble inserting a tampon (or this could be the original problem) as your virginal muscles may tense up and close the opening to the vagina. This is often an involuntary action when you are scared of something being inserted into the vagina as it may hurt. Some people will be able to get over this fairly easily by simply relaxing - and believing that it is not going to hurt - telling yourself.
Relaxing is the key especially when you have experienced pain from it before; never continue inserting something if it is painful - your brain will conceive this as a standard and continue to contract the muscles. Relax, as the other girl suggested maybe try a smaller tampon. -Sit or stand in a comfortable position. Some women prefer to place one leg on the toilet seat or tub, while others prefer to squat down. After you find a position that is most comfortable for you, hold the tampon with the fingers that you write with. Hold the middle of the tampon, at the spot where the smaller, inner tube inserts into the larger, outer tube. Make sure the string is visible and pointing away from your body. -With your other hand, open the labia (the folds of skin around the vaginal opening) and position the tampon in the vaginal opening. -Gently push the tampon into the opening, aiming for the small of your back.
Stop when your fingers touch your body and the applicator, or outer tube, is completely inside the vagina. -Once the applicator or outer tube is inside of you, use your index finger to push the inner tube (the tube where the removal string is visible) through the outer tube. This pushes the tampon into the vagina. -Once the inner tube is all the way in, use your thumb and middle finger to remove the applicator or outer tube. Make sure that the string hangs outside of the vaginal opening. Using a mirror may help and a small amount of vaginal lubricant on the end of the tampon may also make it less painful. If after several attempts over a period of time this is still painful you might want to see a health care provider to see if you do have a slightly abnormal hymen - nothing really to worry about.
