No. Tampons are not marketed or approved for prophylactic use. Only approved Birth Control measures are.

You know where a tampon goes but you can still see it what do you need to do?

If you can still see the tampon once it's inserted then you've not inserted it far enougj. Remove the tampon and try again later, this time insert higher - it's best to use non-applicator tampon so you have better control over insertion.

Will you pass a breathalyzer if an alcohol soaked tampon is inserted into your butt?

No, having a tampon inserted anally won't magically stop the breathalyzer from working.A tampon soaked with alcohol has no place in your anus, in fact tampons shouldn't go in your anus full-stop. Obviously putting a tampon up there is a waste of a tampon and a waste of the alcohol.

Can a tampon get you pregnant?

No, a tampon cannot get you pregnant, not does it offer any protection against getting pregnant if you have sex while one is inserted.

How do you know if you have a tampon in?

You know that you have a tampon in because you physically inserted that tampon! If you think that you've forgotten about a tampon being inserted then you insert your fingers vaginally to check if there is still a tampon there. If you've left a tampon for too long then use pads for the rest of your cycles and watch for symptoms of vaginal infections like bad-smelling excessive discharge.

If a tampon is inserted will it come out on its own?

No. Unless it wasn't fully inserted. From what I know, this is why there is an attached string - pull string to remove.

When i use a tampon my flow just passes it. how far is a tampon supposed to be inserted?

Tampons should be inserted as far as you can reach, you shouldn't feel them once inserted correctly. If the flow is going past the tampon it may be the shape of your vagina or the cervix may sit lower than the tampon - the tampon may go to the side of the cervix, rather than under it to catch flow. Try different types of tampons like soft tampons, or use options like menstrual cups, softcups, or pads instead.

Is it normal to hurt while removing a tampon?

It is not normal for it to hurt when you remove a tampon. Be sure you're pulling the tampon out at the same angle you inserted it rather than pulling straight down.

Do you have to put a tampon in fully?

Yes, it's fairly obvious that a tampon has to be inserted fully as that's the point. A tampon needs to be inserted fully so that they can full absorb menstrual flow in order to prevent leaks. If not inserted fully the tampon will stick out of the vaginal opening which would be very uncomfortable both because it'd push against underwear but also as it would hurt to be in the first few inches of the vagina.

What if it hurts to sit with a tampon in?

It most likely means that the tampon isn't inserted high enough.The first few inches of the vaginal opening is narrower than the rest of the vaginal opening, and when at rest the vaginal walls close in on themselves - if a tampon isn't inserted high enough it will be sitting closer to the vaginal opening so vaginal walls will push against the tampon, especially as you move.

Will a tampon make your uti hurt worse?

Small tube shaped ctton that is inserted in the vagina to absorb menstrual flow?


Why would a tampon feel uncomfortable after you unspread your legs?

If you can feel the tampon of feel uncomfortable once you have closed your legs then the likelihood is that the tampon isn't inserted high enough. The first few inches of your vaginal canal are narrower than further-up in the vagina, if not inserted far enough the tampon will sit in this area and as the vaginal muscles push together they would push against the tampon. This area also has more nerve endings so even if there is no discomfort you are still more likely to feel the tampon if it's here.

What does a tampon feel like inside of you?

Like its not even there. If it's inserted correctly, you cannot feel it.

When you insert a tampon does it go past the muscle and right in with the string hanging out or sights on the muscle with the end of the tampon visible?

The tampon goes all the way into the vaginal canal - if that's what you mean by the muscle, as the vaginal canal is essentially a muscular tube. The whole tampon goes into the vagina and quite deep, it wouldn't even be near the vaginal opening once it is inserted so certainly wouldn't hang out. All that hangs out is the tampon string for easy removal, that is if you use a tampon with a string.

If you put in our first tampon and it doesnt go in all the way is this a problem?

If the tampon isn't inserted correctly then it isn't going to work properly and can cause pain.Make sure the tampon is inserted all the way in, if it hurts to sit or as you move about then the tampon isn't in far enough. If you can't use tampons then just stick with pads and try tampons another time.

What happens if you insert a tampon with a tampon already inside?

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. Inserting the second tampon may push the first tampon into your cervix which may result in menstrual cramp type pains. Also of course with two tampons you will be at much greater risk of vaginal infections and toxic shock syndrome.

How do you know if you have a tampon stuck in you?

Tampons cannot get stuck inside your body, you can forget about having inserted a tampon but that doesn't mean that it's stuck. If you suspect you may have left a tampon inside your vagina then you feel within the vagina for the tampon and remove it. Once you remove the tampon use pads for the rest of that cycle, and if you can't remove the tampon you need to see your doctor.

Does using a tampon before starting your period make it start?

No, using tampons before your period will not cause it to start.When you menstruate is determined by your menstrual cycle, a domino effect of hormonal changes that cause ovulation and in turn menstruation. A tampon is a wad of material inserted into the vaginal canal, it doesn't even come in contact with reproductive organs let alone influence them or the hormones that control them. A tampon shouldn't be used when not menstruating, it's not safe.

How far into a woman does a tampon go?

A tampon is inserted a few inches into the vaginal canal - as far as it can be pushed. Tampons don't sit as high as other options like menstrual cups or softcups.

Is the whole tampon supposed to go in?

Yes, the whole tampon is supposed to go into your vagina.You can't leave some of the tampon hanging out, apart from the fact that it'd not be able to do the job properly if not inserted correctly but it'd be very uncomfortable. When inserted fully you can't feel the tampon, although if you're using tampons with a string that should still be outside your body.
