It can depend on your age. As women grow older the lining of the vaginal area can become thin and dry. Each woman is different re discharge. So, if you only have a light discharge this too could pose a problem. Tampons really aren't the best although seem the most popular. There are so many products put out on the market now that you can choose perhaps "Always with wings." Also try having showers instead of baths. Bubble baths are not good for you and can dry out the vaginal area as can too hot a bath. Women who take too many baths are much more likely to get infections in this area. Take showers instead. It is very important that you see your GP regarding this problem to be assured there is no other medical reason for this problem. after i had my kids they felt wierd. Tilted Uterus- My doctor confirmed this problem for me because I was having problems inserting my tampon and having intercourse.

Why when you insert a tampon does it hurt?

Tampons shouldn't hurt you at all if using correctly and if you're relaxed.Make sure you're inserting far enough into the vagina and inserting at the correct angle, it's also important you're relaxed when inserting. Also always use lowest absorbency for your flow, it's a good idea to opt for hypoallergenic cotton tampons too to rule-out risk of allergic reaction.

Does it hurt to put a tampon on?

It can hurt to insert a tampon, but it shouldn't - pain is not normal when using tampons.It can hurt if you're not relaxed enough when inserting tampons because the vaginal walls clench together when you're tense, thus you'd be pushing against vaginal walls when inserting tampons. If you use too high an absorbency or if you use tampons you're allergic to this can cause pain, as too will using tampons without sufficient flow. You can also experience pain if you don't insert at an angle or if you don't insert the tampon high enough in the vagina.

Is it painful to use a tampon for the first time?

No, it shouldn't be painful to use tampons for the first time. Your vagina is the same before using tampons as it is after using tampons, there's nothing that changes to mean tampons would cause pain the first time you use them but then be fine after that. Tampons can hurt if you don't use them correctly: using too high an absorbency, not relaxing enough during insertion, pushing into a vaginal wall rather than through the vaginal canal, or not inserting high enough. Tampons can also hurt if they push into your cervix, they can increase cramps, and rayon tampons contain various ingredients that can cause irritation or allergic reaction.

What causes pain while inserting and removing a tampon?

Most commonly pain when inserting or removing tampons is due to lack of relaxation - if you're tense your vaginal muscles tense causing the vagina to tense-up so inserting anything or pulling anything out is going to be more difficult. If you're using too high an absorbency this may be an issue too, tampons dry-out vaginal tissues causing tearing so if using too high an absorbency or inserting one tampon after another without using pads occasionally is going to increase damage. If using rayon tampons vaginal dryness can be worse, also you may be allergic to ingredients in these tampons.

If you want to use tampons over safe options like pads or menstrual cups then you need to be able to prove to your mom that you are mature enough to use tampons correctly. She may want to talk about this to you, but the first sentence of 'Mom, can I start using tampons?' is a good first step to this conversation.
