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.

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. :)

A tampon should be taken out and changed every 2-4 hours

The plastic part around the tampon is the applicator. You use it to put in the tampon, but you don't leave it in your vagina.

.the tampon fits into the vagina, and the urine comes out of the bladder into the urinary tract, so do not worry, you can urinate without having to remove the tampon.

You might be uncomfortable, and the tampon would not be able to expand and function normally.

You remove the tampon the first time just like any other time. If the tampon has a string then you relax and pull gently but firmly on the string until the tampon comes out. If the tampon doesn't have a string then you insert clean forefinger and thumb to grab the tampon and pull out. Once removed either wrap-up and dispose of the tampon in the trash.
