  • Tampons???

    Okay so I've recently started using tampons.I've used pads most of my period cause my mom has definately been concerned about tss.but she said I shud tried them.so I've used them.it took me a while to figure them out,but it seems as if I still haven't gotten it right.its like I get it right one time,then when I go to change it,I mess it up,and I have to take it out! Any advice.I love tampons cause to me they r more sanitary.any suggestions wud b appreciated

  • Make sure you are relaxed while putting it in. If you tense up, it's going to be a struggle. If you struggle putting it in in one position, try another i.e. over toilet, standing with one leg up on something, etc.

    Try a different applicator or a non applicator one. Try slender tampons.

    You'll get it in a matter of no time.

    • Make sure you don't leave them in longer than the recommended time.

        • Getting the right position for you is always the first place to start and once you feel comfortable you'll find it easier to relax
