Why can't I put a tampon in all the way without it hurting really bad?

Chances are you're tense - if you're tense vaginal muscles

tense, the vaginal canal is basically a muscular tube so this

translates to your vagina tightening aka narrowing so making it

more difficult to insert anything. If it's getting to the point

where it hurts then obviously you're trying to force it, the more

you force things the less relaxed you are and the more you're going

to be hurting yourself: stop. You also need to make sure that you

use the lowest absorbency for your flow, always use the lowest

absorbency that you can and ideally use cotton tampons instead of

rayon tampons.

There could be several reasons. If you are young it's possible

that maybe you aren't quite 'developed' yet. Are you using the

super absorbency ones? Im in my late 20's and those hurt me. Read

the box, it has info on tss that you may learn something from.
