  • tampons

    okay, honestly i feel like i'm the only one with this problem because most of my friends seem to use tampons. but for some reason tampons and i just don't seem to get along!! i'm guessing i can't get it in far enough, and every time i try i'm uncomfortable. i would honestly prefer trying to use them on a regular basis when i have my period because it just seems more convenient...but seeing as how it doesn't really work out i feel very discouraged. usually when i put it in, i feel like there is pressure in my lower abdomen area when i'm sitting down, like under my belly button. i don't know if it's because i'm slouching or something???

  • Your just not getting them in right I have the same problem when I use oines that are too big for me I use the Tampax compax multi pack so I can have options!! Good Luck!~*

      If you keep having problems with tampons you can always try a Menstrual cup it's reusable so you only ever have to buy one. If your interested you can look up The diva Cup on the internet they have a tone of information in there Q&A section.

      • Buy the tiny little OB tampon.

        Sit on the toilet, sort of lounging back, legs wide.
        Use one hand to spread the lips.

        Put the tampon by the vagina, push in, and use
        your middle finger to push it in as far as you can
        being as relaxed as you can, making sure the
        string is hanging down.

        Relax...it won't get lost.

        You have to push it in far enough with your middle
        finger...once you get past the inner lips, you won't
        feel it.

        I started with the trainee OB.

        • I had the same problem you had. The key is not to stress too much over it, try different kinds eventually you'll get it. I first tried with ob and it was horrible then I tried a tampon with an aplicator and it was easy as pie, so try try again!
          Good luck

          • I'm not fond of tampons--I'm not sure if the problem is how I'm putting it in or what, but they typically don't go in far enough, and sometimes it hurts. With a bit of work, I can get it in successfully, and then it's just great (I do that when I absolutely have to wear a shorter skirt, for example).

            I finally just made peace that tampons are not for me. I was completely buying into the tampon commercial hype that pads are somehow the immature way to handle a period, and that's totally not the case. If you find that you're just more comfortable with pads, there's nothing wrong with that.

            • I didn't even try tampons until after my
              third was about six years old.

              I liked them very much but I also wore
              a pad, because I bleed very heavily...
              I found the tampon would get me from
              home to office, (be replaced) and then
              replaced again around lunch...and often
              I could get home again before having to
              replace it again.

              I think they are very useful for those
              who bleed heavily or for those who
              have fairly light periods.

              In the middle; well, I never abandoned
              pads.
