When inserting a tampon angle it towards your lower back (the top of your butt). If you can still feel it after inserting you didn't put it in far enough (almost everyone does this first time using tampons)

A tampon should be inserted towards the small of your back or your bottom, depending on the position you're in during insertion - sitting or standing with one leg up works best. It's a good idea to use non-applicator tampons as these allow you to feel for resistance to change angle when needed to guide the tampon up through the vaginal canal, non-applicator are simpler to use too.

You should explore your genitals with your fingers first to get an idea of the curve of your vaginal canal and feel how the vaginal walls close around your finger or clench together if you tense-up.

What angle are you suppose to insert a tampon at?

Angle the tampon towards the small of your back - the angle of your vaginal canal differs in different positions but aiming towards the small of your back will always ensure the tampon is at the correct angle. Feel for any resistance and re-adjust the angle slightly if you have any problems.

If you already have a tampon inserted and you were to insert another then it may be difficult for you to insert the second tampon.

Also of course with two tampons you will be at much greater risk of vaginal infections and toxic shock syndrome.

Pushing down on the plunger of the applicator is what pushes the tampon into the vagina.There are many reasons why inserting tampons may hurt including you being too tense when inserting, inserting at the wrong angle, or using too high an absorbency. It would help if you were to use a non-applicator tampon to improve control and feel for resistance to insert the tampon correctly.

No, when inserting the tampon all you're inserting is the tampon itself and not the applicator.Applicators are just a means of inserting the tampon without you making contact with your genitals, they're actually not needed at all. The applicator is not part of the tampon so you remove it once you've used it to insert the tampon. If using tampons you should understand how they work and how to insert.

You simply pull the tampon string gently but firmly - or insert clean fingers vaginally to grab the tampon itself in order to remove.

You can then insert a fresh tampon or reinsert the reusable tampon - although it's best to alternate with pads after tampon use.

Does it hurt to put a tampon on?

It can hurt to insert a tampon, but it shouldn't - pain is not normal when using tampons.It can hurt if you're not relaxed enough when inserting tampons because the vaginal walls clench together when you're tense, thus you'd be pushing against vaginal walls when inserting tampons. If you use too high an absorbency or if you use tampons you're allergic to this can cause pain, as too will using tampons without sufficient flow. You can also experience pain if you don't insert at an angle or if you don't insert the tampon high enough in the vagina.
