If you can, Lay down on your bed and put one leg up and it’ll side in easily. Also pause

If you’re feeling a “bone” inside your vagina, it’s most likely that you need to have a bowel movement, and you’re feeling your own stool through your vaginal wall.

This problem also happens to me where I cannot insert the tampon easily on some days of my period. This can be because your cervix gets lower and harder during your period, so the cervix can get in the way of a tampon.

Another possibility is prolapse, where your pelvic floor muscles are not strong enough to support your uterus and it starts to push down into your vagina, stopping a tampon from fitting properly. Mostly this happens to mothers, but it can happen to anyone with weak pelvic floor muscles.
