Why can't I get a tampon in? Watch
So I'm only 14 but I wanted to k ow if anyone else struggled/struggles with this. I can't seem to put anything in my vagina and there seems to be some resistance when I do. I can't be the only one who finds its awkward talking about this or making a doctor's appoingment. I'm new on here so I wanted to ask. If anyone has any advice on this then that would be great.
Have you tried looking at the brand your using? You might find plastic applicator tampons easier. Additionally, some brands are aimed at teens and produce smaller tampons that are easier to insert (with a plastic applicator). If your from the UK, Always Compak/Pearl Compak are meant to be easy to insert, and lilets (i think?) is aimed at teenagers. Kotex (which I think is a US brand?) is a popular choice as well.
You may also need to change the position in which your inserting it incase its making you tense/ making it difficult for you to insert it.
All my period life to date I've worn pads.
However the time has come now to couple wearing a tampon with pads.
Today is my first day of trying to wear a tampon, and I am having problems with inserting it.
Is there a posistion/ posture that makes insertion easier? Your advice and help would be most welcome.
