If it hurts to take out, it is probably because it's too dry. So what I like to do is to just go to the bathroom (pull the string out of the way), with the tampon in. Then the tampon will get moist and it will be easier to slide out. It always works for me. :)

You remove the tampon once it's full - it should be full within 4-6 hours, if not saturated in that time you need to use a lower absorbency and if you struggle to comfortably remove the tampon as it's dry in places try sitting in a shallow bath and helping the water get to the tampon.

If using tampons with strings you just gently but firmly pull on the string, don't worry the string is unlikely to snap but even if it does it's no big deal, to remove tampons without a string just insert clean hands vaginally and pull the tampon out. Make sure to relax as if you tense the vaginal walls to clench around the tampon, watch it doesn't get caught behind your hymen too.

Once removed wrap-up the used tampon in toilet paper or sanitary bags and throw in the bin.

Should you take your tampon out when using the restroom?

No, there's no need to remove your tampon when using the restroom.Tampons will not absorb urine when you urinate, given as tampons are within your vagina and urine comes from your urethra. All you need do is move the string of the tampon out of the way of the flow of urine as otherwise it'd get wet, which isn't very comfortable or hygienic. It is a good idea to time changing your tampon with bathroom breaks as much as possible, just to avoid spending so long in bathrooms.

What do you do when you cannot get the tampon out?

You relax and try masturbating as when aroused the vagina becomes relaxed, lubricated, opens, and increases in size to make it easier for you to remove the tampon. If the tampon is still dry then take a shallow bath and help the water get to the tampon to help soften it up so it's easier to remove. If you still can't get it out then you have to go to the doctor or hospital to have it removed.

How do tampons work?

when using a tampon... u simply have 2 stick ur foot up on a toilet. then put ur fingers on the tampon. find the opening of ur vagina and open it. put the tampon under u and push the tampon into ur body. next, take ur pointer finger that was holding onto the tampon and push the tampon into ur body. pull the non - tampon part out of ur body and throw it away. the tampon will suck up the blood. after 4 - 6 hours... pull it out and throw it in the toilet. replace with a new one. when you go to change it if there are still white patches on it, try a lighter flow one next time or if you need to change it more regularly or it leaks then try a higher absorbancy tampon to find the right one for you. :)

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