Why does it hurt every time I insert a tampon?
Asked Oct 9, 2008, 08:18 AM
I started my periods when I was 14. I started using pads, but wanted to progress to Tampons. I tried a few times and it really hurt. I finally got one in, it hurt at first, but after it was in place, I was fine.
I though, after inserting the first one, it wouldn't hurt after that. But I was wrong.
Every single period that I have now, I insert a tampon, I get such a sharp pain in my lower stomach as I am pushing the applicator, but once it is in, its fine!
I don't understand.
I thought it was because I haven't had sex yet.
But I've put tampons in before, so I thought that the more times I did it, the less it would hurt.
I always relax when I am doing it, but it doesn't seem to help.
Please send some advice, I don't know what to do. Could there be a problem?!
