You need to position a mirror so you can see and feel yourself. Once you have sorted out your anatomy you can do it by touch alone. The vagina does not go straight up, it goes more up and back so you need to put in the tampon at an angle. If you don't have a female relative who you can ask to help go to the school nurse, she has been trained to answer questions like this.

You don't need to be able to see where your vaginal opening is, most people do not look at their vulva's every time they go to insert a tampon. You can insert a tampon simply by feeling where the vaginal opening is located and inserting as normal. If you cannot locate your vaginal opening then it's unlikely you understand your vagina well enough to know how to use tampons correctly, stick with pads.

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.

What if the doctor did not find the lost tampon inside of you?

If the doctor did not find a tampon inside your vagina then that's because there is no tampon inside your vagina. The vaginal canal is only a few inches in length and the cervix at the top stops the tampon from going any further into your vagina. The doctors look for the tampon by inserting a speculum so that they can see inside your vagina, there's nowhere for the tampon to hide.

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.

Why does it hurt when you tampon in?

It may hurt the first few times you insert a tampon but with practice it will get easier. If it hurts while it is in that means you did not put it far enough inside your vagina. When you put it in, walk around to see if it hurts. If not, then you inserted it correctly and do not have to worry. If it did hurt, take it out and try again with a new one.

What happens if you have a tampon stuck in you for a month?

Tampons cannot get stuck, a tampon would only be in for a month if you left it there. Obviously you remove the tampon and don't use tampons again for some time so your vagina has a chance to recover. You will likely contract a vaginal infection like bacterial vaginosis so see your doctor for antibiotics.

How do you know if a tampon is stuck?

You know a tampon is stuck because you wouldn't be able to get it out - that's what stuck means! If you can't remember if there is a tampon in your vagina then you can insert your fingers vaginally to feel if there is still a tampon inside your vagina. As long as you're relaxed the tampon should come out, a bath and/or masturbation can make removal easier, but if you do find you can't remove the tampon then you should see your doctor as if left too long it can be very dangerous.

Will you bleed if you have a tampon stuck inside of you?

A tampon inside you won't cause bleeding, although it may cause odor. If you think you have a tampon stuck inside you, squat down, bear down, and put a finger inside your vagina.

Leaving a tampon wouldn't be my first guess if I were dizzy, but it's easy to check. Squat down and put a finger in your vagina. If you feel the tampon, then remove it.

You first insert the tampon into the vagina, then push the applicator inside slowly and make sure the string is hanging outside otherwise it will be hard to take the tampon out and you could get toxic shock syndrome.First you hold the tampon with your thumb and middle finger both sides of the applicator then with your index finger push the applicator slowly up ito the vagina but push it slightly backwards towards the top of your bottom, then you just about know from where the applicator is ( in the vagina with a tiny little bit sticking out) Then push the applicator with your index finger to push the tampon up then take the applicator out carefully and then you should just have the string hanging out.

What if your tampon falls out in the toilet?

It's VERY unlikely that a tampon would fall out - tampons are held in place by the vaginal muscles, the vaginal walls also close around the tampon which help keep it in place - if a tampon did fall out of your vagina when using the bathroom you should see your doctor as there is a problem with vaginal muscle tone. If a tampon was to fall out then you would unfortunately have to scoop it out to throw it in the bin.

What happens if your tampon rips?

If your tampon rips and you left a tuft of cotton in your vagina, the cotton will come out naturally with the normal menstrual flow or vaginal discharge. If the string ripped off -- which I've never seen -- then see your health care provider if you're not able to remove the tampon.

How do you know if your tampon is lost inside you?

Most of the time, women who think they've lost a tampon have not. If you aren't sure, squat down and put one finger in your vagina as you bear down. You'll feel the cervix, with a texture like your nose, at the end of your vagina. Feel around the outside of the cervix (like drawing a circle with your finger around your nose). Do you feel a tampon? if not, there's probably not one there. If you're still not convinced, see your health care provider or your local family planning agency. They can reassure you in a matter of minutes.

What would you feel if you have a lost tampon?

If you have a lost tampon, you may have odor, and you may feel the tampon with your fingers. Squat down, bear down, and insert a finger in your vagina.

If you're still nervous, see your health care provider or your local family planning office; they'll be happy to help, and they have experience in caring for women with this concern.

Is it possible for an emergency room doctor to not see a tampon you inserted and thought you lost inside your body?

If the emergency room doctor did an effective speculum exam, then the doctor w2ould not be able to miss a tampon in your vagina. There is nowhere else a tampon can go; the vagina is a dead end. But removal of a lost tampon is not a reason for an emergency room visit. Next time, see your regular health care provider or your local family planning agency. They are better able to provide this kind of care. Routine GYN care is not what emergency rooms are for, and not their specialty.

Do vaginas stretch out?

Yes they do, if you see your docter or GP about problems with the vagina they will need to put their fingers in the vagina to see if their are any infections or rashes, spots or other. so YES vaginas only scretch out if you or docter put fingers in vagina.

Is it possible that the tampon cant fit inside the hole in your vagina?

They come in different sizes and you can add lubrication on it. When it feels like the smallest don't fit. it's just because you don't relax and haven't got the hang of it yet. The vaginal opening can stretch to the size of a penis and a baby's head so it will fit. You can try with your fingers first.

Can you lose a tampon?

You certainly can. Many times, women can retain a tampon in their vagina. If you are worried that this has occurred, you should go to the doctor right away- the tampon can gather bacteria, and if left in too long can cause serious infections. Sometimes you will need the doctor to get the tampon out. Sometimes, a tampon can also come out while you are going to the bathroom (#2). Sometimes this goes unnoticed, and if you feel comfortable doing it, you can search yourself to see if you can feel a retained tampon, or if it came out unnoticed.

Are you supposed to feel a tampon when its in?

When you put a tampon is, you have to push it as far up as you can, don't worry it's not dirty to put your finger up your vagina to push it up. Once it's in, you should try standing up to see if its comfortable. In my opinion i think tampons are easier & more hygenic than pads. I feel more comfortable and don't feel self concious.
