Basically, I want to know how do I put a tampon on? I have been using pads pretty much the whole time, and i just wanna know how to put one on. I mean like i know there are instructions in the packet when u buy a box, but like i feel im not really getting it? (which sounds really sad).

Speaking of buying a box, how do I know which one to buy? I mean do I buy like the regular, or the mini or the, whatever else there is?

And is it supposed to hurt like really horribly when I try to put one in?

Um, help would be very muchly appreciated, and thanks lots in advance!

Applicators ones.

Those are good to start off with.

The best ones to start with are probably Tampax Mini Applicator Tampons.

The instructions in the leaflet are pretty self explainatory, as they are aimed at people just starting out.

Make sure you insert the tampon high enough, it should all be inside you and you shouldn't really be able to feel it. The reason it hurts for some people the first time is because its not far enough up if you get what I mean.

get the tampax compax ones to start with because the plasticy applicator is really easy to use. get the lowest absorbancy there is because they'll be smaller.
there'll be instructions in the packet which are fairly easy to follow but don't be afraid of a bit of trial and error at first.
if you're nervous and tense it's likely to hurt more but if you sit on the loo and breathe properly and try not to stress out it shouldn't hurt at all, though it may feel a little uncomfortable at first.

hope that's some help.

edit: also like mollymustard said, if when you stand up again you can feel it it's not in far enough so take it out and have another go with a new one.

Use an applicator..they're ace, tampax do good ones, try using a lite one aswell as they're smaller.

the first thing you need to do is locate your vagina, you need to know where it is..cause, well..that is where you put it lol

You simply insert the tampon, only an inch inside your vagina, the key really is to relax as this relaxes your pelvic muscles. Try taking a breath out when you're inserting it.

when it's roughly about an inch in, push the end of the tampon slowly until you can push no furthur, simply take away the cardboard applicator, and the tampon should be snugly inside.

You'll know its a good fit, cause you shouldn't be able to feel it inside of you, if you do then it's not in properly. If so, simply take it out (a good firm pull should be appropiate) roll it in toilet paper, and put it in the bin, and try again.

If you're unsure how the contraption works, pratice pushing the end of the tampon, so you get the gist of it.

Just take it slow, relax and reap the benefits of a nice clean vagina!!!!

OH, wash your hands afterwards, and replace the tampon roughly every 4 hours depending on your flow, Or when you go to the toilet, OH and beware, sometimes when doing a poo it can come out a bit!!!

OH, and try putting your leg up on the loo seat, if you want to pratice, try doing it lying down..then when your period comes around you'll have a good idea where to go. AND change the tampon throughout your flow..it depends how you are, if you're very heavy use the super..normal flow should be regular and a light flow (usually towards the end) is the lite

I agree. Get applicator ones and then it's just pretty much insert and push the applicator and you're done

There's no discomfort but don't feel bad about it taking a few times. The angle can be awkward to find if you're not used to it.

Yes, if its too near the opening of your Vagina it will be really uncomfortable.

It doesn't hurt at all, especially with applicators, it's in and comfortable before you know it. Just try and get your leg up on a bath or a toilet or something to the side of your body. If you push the applicator up and in in facing your bodyand then push the tampon bit up it should go straight in. Maybe start with small ones while you get started, i think Tampax Minis or Lillets do small ones with applicators and then see how long it lasts and then maybe move up as you figure out which size you need for your flow.
I use Tampax and have really heavy periods at the start so use Super Plus, then down to Super then regular.
You won't know how you mlived before them once you get used to it. Good Luck

I hate pads they annoy me and id much rather use tampons but the ones I tried (lil-lets non applicator regular) I can get in so that its not visible anymore but I know you have to push it up so that quite a bit of your finger has got in there too and you can no longer feel or see it.

When I do this though it feels a bit sore as if the cotton is too dry to push in and doesnt budge with a fair bit of pressure. Ive put my index finger in before to check I knew the feel of where it was supposed to go and it slides on no bother, with no pain. Even when not on periods. As does the tampon with the plastic seal over it (I washed it as I was practising finding the angle when I wasnt on my periods and didnt want to waste a tampon or soak anything up inside). It slid in absolutely fine too so I know its not that I have the wrong angle or as too tight or whatever. Im always the same level of relaxed when its a practise or its an actual attempt during a period with the cotton exposed so cant be nerves.

Before I go and waste money on buying a box of applicator lillets does anyone think that because the applicator is plastic I would be able to slide tampons in much easier this way? They seem to be more confusing to insert than if your guiding a normal one in yourself though.
