If the tampon is at the top of your vagina, the easiest way to remove it is to squat down, bear down, and try to insert two fingers to grab it between them like scissors. If you aren't able to do so, see your health care provider or your local family planning agency. They have heard this complaint before, and will be able to help in a matter of minutes.

When you insert a tampon do you keep the bigger tube on?

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.

If you still can't get it out then you have to go to the doctor or hospital to have it removed.

Can a tampon get stuck inside you on its own accord or does it have to be pushed somehow?

Tampons can't get stuck inside you. Tampons can go no further than your vaginal canal, this is because at the top of the vaginal canal is the cervix (opening to the uterus) and a tampon cannot pass through this. As long as you relax and you're using tampons correctly you can remove a tampon - if you struggle then you'd need to see your doctor for help to remove the tampon.

What if you need to pee really bad but cant get the tampon out?

Your tampon is in your vagina and does not need to be removed for you to urinate. Once you do go, your bladder will be less full and the tampon will probably be easily removed.

How do you change your tampon?

You remove the previous tampon - relax and either pull the string firmly and gently or use your fingers to remove the tampon. If you're using sponge tampons then you rinse out in warm water and reinsert, just like inserting for the first time. If you're using disposable tampons then you wrap-up the used tampon in toilet paper and throw into the bin, then insert your fresh tampon like you did with the first one. It's best to alternate with pads as often as possible with tampon use.
