View Full Version : Tampons?

May 16th, 2016, 02:41 PM
I have a bit of a problem with tampons. I can't seem to angle them right. I sit down, and never have a problem putting it in. But once its there, I can't sit or move in certain positions because it is uncomfortable, and I push it all the way in. I just can't get the angle right. What can I do? I can stand it and I've only gotten it once, a miracle, when I didn't feel it at all and everything was fine.

You can also use sanitary towel / sanitary napkin.
Maybe it is better for you

I find puting one leg up on a high place (like a toilet seat or a bench) makes it easier to put them in. Also, generally it takes up most of your longest finger to put it in.

Pads (AKA sanitary napkins/towel) might be a better option for you, you'll just have to skip swimming and most sports during your period.

Most packets come with a little instruction manual, so check that out to when you get a fresh packet.

It does take practice. . also it could be that You're using the wrong size,there's light, regular and super... if you are a first timer or if you have had your period maybe a year, you should use Light or if its a little heavy use regular..... okay now for the fun part, you have to relax that muscle in order for the tampon to work properly.. Try putting your leg up on the toilet seat and kinda squat a little, don't rush, slide it in with ease Or stand up and squat . It will feel a little weird because it's considered a foreign object. It's not supposed to feel like nothing because a lot of women will forget that it's there. Here's a link if you need more help
