    Why does it hurt every time I insert a tampon?

    Asked Oct 9, 2008, 08:18 AM 21 Answers
    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.

    Any suggestions?
    Please send some advice, I don't know what to do. Could there be a problem?!

    If you have heavy periods don't use smaller ones too.

    My first time using a tampon, it hurt but then finally stopped. The first time I decided to use a tampon , it was during the summer and I was going to a pool party. I put it in but somehow I didn't put it in all the way.. The first dip into the pool the tampon expanded and stretched my "hole" and if I were you I would just stick to pads until you know how to use a tampon properly!
