Into the vaginal opening. It is important to be relaxed and to make sure you push it all the way in. Push towards the lower back.. In the vaginal hole below the urethra which is where urine comes out of. You should read the directions that come witht he box of tampons. It is helpful. Also, make sure you insert it all the way because if you dont, it will be uncomfortable. Try doing it with one leg up on the toilet. Put it in the whole underneath your legs, gosh. IS IT THAT HARD???? Just dont stick it up your butt hole that would be a bit uncomfertable. I am surprised that sooooo many people asked this question.

The tampon is inserted into the vagina - when the blood is coming out.

If you don't even know where a tampon is inserted then you should not be using tampons, this is because there are many risks with tampon use that you need to understand before choosing to use tampons. It's best to stick with pads for now, then once you understand your body better consider options like menstrual cups which are internal like tampons but safer.

You could physically put a tampon in your anus, but you shouldn't.Tampons are supposed to be inserted vaginally, if attempting to insert a tampon for it's intended purposes then you should know where the vaginal opening is located so know not to insert into the anus.

No, it's not supposed to hurt when you insert a tampon.Most likely it hurts because you were tensing-up so having to push the tampon against vaginal walls, or it can also be painful if you don't insert the tampon far enough - the first few inches of the vagina are the narrowest and most sensitive. Make sure to relax next time and use lubricant to help with insertion.

Why won't my tampon go in the second time?

It's impossible for us to tell you why your tampon won't go in without more information. It may be that your flow has lightened so not heavy enough for tampon use and causing too much friction to insert. It may be that you're tensed-up for some reason so you can't insert anything vaginally.

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.
