  • Sexually active but cannot insert a tampon

    Hello everyone,
    I'll just dive into the topic!
    So I've recently (less than a year ago) started having sexual intercourse. I'd never tried to insert a tampon before then because of my fear of breaking the hymen and just inserting anything in there really.
    Now, there is no problem whatsoever with sexual intercourse, however I still find myself unable to insert anything in my own vaginal opening. Mainly because I don't really know how to find it..When following instructions on how to insert a tampon and spreading the labia I feel like there's flesh where it should not be or maybe I'm just not doing it right...
    if anyone had any advice it would be great as I'm going on a holiday with him in the summer and would want to use tampons if I get on while we're by the sea.
    Thank you in advance!! xxx

  • Use a mirror to find the opening. It sounds like you're not going back far enough.

      Yes! It sounds like you've sorted this out quite well. It's cliche, but life is too short to spend on things that don't make you happy.

      It sounds like you have been through SO MUCH over the past couple years, your body AND your mind.
