  • 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.

      The ethical vegans don’t eat dairy for that reason. It’s interesting how they view things. I found out recently that some of them will eat eggs and...

      P&C, I'm a fairly quiet person too. Not shy. People mistake that for many things, and misunderstand it all the time. I'm ok with that. I choose to...
