When you insert a tampon for the first time do you have to push it in hard?

If you are a young woman just starting her period it is not good for you to use a tampon the first year or so. Doctors advise against using them and you need to wait until you are older. If you do start to use them I hope you also know to change them often because if you don't bacteria can build up and kill you. Yes, it is hard to insert a tampon the first time.
