For individuals using tampons for the first time, it's best to uses ones with a plastic applicator. This would be advised for 'virgins' or 'first-timers' simply because you need to get used to not tensing up and the applicator, either cardboard or ones without an applicator can create additional pain with any tensing up at all.

It could be caused by a more serious reason, but like above take switch to a pad until your ready and always start with the smallest size and work your way to something larger.

With tampons you want to use the smallest size possible for your body type so make sure your initial size is mini and if you find yourself needing to replace it to often you can move to a larger size.

Me, It started hurting, but what you can do, is stay relaxed, so it can go without hurting, or extend you legs, so there's more room to put it in.Well, it works for me!

Experiencing pain when inserting or removing tampons is a sign that you may have vulvar vestibulitis (VVS), which is also known as "vestibulodynia." VVS is a kind of vulvodynia (there are several types of vulvar pain conditions that fall under the general heading "vulvodynia"). Women with VVS typically experience pain with intercourse. In some cases, the pain is so severe that intercourse is impossible. The pain is experienced only in the vestibule--the area outside the entrance to the vagina.

Unfortunately, many gynecologists are not familiar with VVS. Research on it has been grossly underfunded. Often a women must see several physicians before she is accurately diagnosed.

Yeah, I still don't wear tampons because I find them uncomfortable. Pads are better to use so if it's painful because you're doing it wrong or just because you're not used to it, stick with pads or ask a close female friend if you're putting it in right.

There are a few reasons why tampon use may be painful.

  • Lack of relaxation: if you're tense vaginal muscles tense causing vaginal walls to clench together.
  • Not inserting far enough: tampon will sit low in the vagina so muscles push against the tampon.
  • Not inserting at the correct angle: pushing into the vaginal walls, rather than pushing into place.
  • Your hymen is in tact: if the hymen is in tact it can make insertion or removal difficult for some.
  • Using too high an absorbency: always use lowest absorbency, don't use when not menstruating.
  • Using tampon when not menstruating: don't use tampons before menstruation or with spotting.
  • Allergic reaction: rayon tampons contain many harmful ingredients a person may be allergic to.

Would anything bad happen if you filled a tampon with toothpaste and put it into your but?

I'm not sure why you would want to insert a tampon into your anus, least of all why you would firstly put toothpaste on the tampon - but potentially it may be bad for health. The toothpaste could sting the mucus membranes in your anus, but the main issue would be that the tampon could dry-out and damage the tissues in your anus - this could cause discomfort, infection, and risk toxic shock syndrome.

What happens if i forgot a tampon inside of me and put another one in but didn't realize it how would i get it out?

You would simply remove the tampon as you would normally. Your vagina is not a bottomless pit, the tampon can go no further than your vaginal canal. Just remove as you would normally and don't use another tampon for at LEAST 8 hours to allow your vagina time to clean itself.

What would happen if you put a tampon in when you weren't on your period?

Wearing a tampon when not on a period is unhealthy and unnecessary. It creates the perfect conditions for the toxic shock syndrome and for infection. The toxic shock symdrome has killed women and the tampon box gives a warning about it and wearing a tampon when not on a period.

How do you put a tampon in if you are a boy?

You can only use a tampon if you're menstruating - if you're a boy you may menstruate, but only if you have a uterus and vagina (e.g. if you're a trans boy). If you're a cis boy then there's absolutely no reason for you to be using tampons and nowhere for you to put a tampon as you don't have a vagina. So in short, if you are a boy you do not put a tampon in at all.

How do you put on and remove a tampon if you never got your period?

I hope you are not wearing a tampon when not on a period. This is unhealthy and if you are just starting your period you should not be using a tampon until you are older. The tampon box gives written as well as a diagram of how to put in a tampon. Follow the directions and read the warnings. This is very important.
