It can be frightening to insert a tampon for the first time.If you know how to insert it correctly, it’s easier than you think.This will show you how to do it.
Step 1: Buy feminine hygiene products.
When you know more about what to buy, you won’t feel intimidated.If you want to go with the company that makes your pads to feel comfortable, you can choose from a number of common brands.The three things to keep in mind are paper, plastic, and absorbency.You need to know if it’s paper or plastic.Some feminine hygiene products have a paper or plastic application.If you have an unreliable plumbing system, you may not want to take your chances with the paper applicator.Some people say that plastic is easier to use.You can try both and make a decision.There is either an application or no application.Some feminine hygiene products are sold with applicators, while others are not.It’s easier to use feminine hygiene products when you’re starting off.You have to push the tampon up in your vagina with your fingers, which can be more of a challenge.The good news is that they are small, so you can keep them in your pocket.There is absorption.”regular” or “super absorbent” are the most common types of feminine hygiene products.If you’re going to use the super ones, you should start with regular ones to get used to them.They aren’t necessarily harder to use.When your flow isn’t as heavy, you can use regular tampons first and then switch to more absorbent ones.You can mix and match the regular and super absorbent tampons in many packs.
Step 2: The flow is moderate to heavy.
If you have just begun your period and your flow is still light, it will be harder for the tampon to glide into your vagina.The walls of your vagina will be more moist if your flow is heavier.Some people want to know if they can use feminine hygiene products when they aren’t on their period.If you do this, you may want to wait until your period begins, as it will be harder to insert the tampon into the vagina.If you try it on your own and have a hard time, don’t be afraid to ask a trusted female for help.
Step 3: You need to wash your hands.
It’s important that you wash your hands before you use a feminine hygiene product.You don’t want to get an STD from your vagina.
Step 4: Open the wrapper with dry hands.
Wait until your hands are dry and then throw the wrapper away.There is no reason to be a little nervous.If you accidentally drop the pons on the ground, you should throw it away and get a new one.You don’t want to get an infectious disease just because you did not use a sanitary napkin.
Step 5: Stand or sit in a comfortable position.
You’ll get a better idea of which method works for you as you get more comfortable with it.Some women like to sit on the toilet.Some people like to stand and squat.If you want to make your vaginal opening more accessible, you can put one leg on the toilet or side of the tub.You should try to relax as much as possible.The more relaxed you are, the easier it will be to use the feminine hygiene product.
Step 6: Write something down with your fingers.
At the spot where the smaller, inner tube inserts into the larger, outer tube, hold it in its middle.The thick part of the tampon should point downwards, away from your body, if the string is easily visible.You can put your middle finger and thumb on the provided grips.
Step 7: You can find your vagina.
Between the anus and the urethra is the vagina.There are three openings in the body, the urethra, vagina and anus.To find the opening of the vagina, feel an inch or two behind your urethra.It’s normal to get a little bit of blood on your hands.Some people recommend that you use your other hand to open your labia, which are the folds of skin around the vaginal opening.This can help you with the opening.Some people are able to use their bare hands.
Step 8: Put the top of the pons into your vagina.
Now that you’ve found your vagina, you don’t have to worry about putting the tampon into it.The outer tube of the tampon should be inside your vagina if you push it up slowly.
Step 9: Use your index finger to press the thinner part.
When the thin and thick portions meet, stop.The tampon is placed further up your vagina with the help of the applicator.The inner tube of the tampon can be pushed through the outer tube.
Step 10: You can use your thumb and middle finger.
The only thing left to do is to remove the applicator.To pull the applicator away from your vagina, simply use your thumb and middle finger.You should be able to see the string hanging from your vaginal opening.
Step 11: Don’t use the applicator.
If it’s made of plastic, you should discard it.Carefully check the instructions on the box to make sure you can flush it if it’s made of cardboard.It’s better to throw it out if you’re not sure.
Step 12: It’s a good idea to wear a pantyliner along with your feminine hygiene product.
Though this isn’t necessary, many girls like to wear pantyliners along with their tampons just in case their pons start to leak a bit after absorbing as much menstrual fluid as they can.This isn’t likely to happen if you use the bathroom frequently, but wearing a pantyliner may give you an extra sense of security.You won’t be able to feel the thinnest pantyliners.
Step 13: Make sure you are comfortable.
It’s likely that you didn’t insert it correctly if you feel uncomfortable with it.If you did not insert it properly, you shouldn’t be able to feel it.You should remove it if you feel like it’s not all the way in.You will be able to tell if you didn’t insert it correctly because the bottom of the tampon can be seen outside of your vagina.It’s time to try again if this is the case.You should be able to run, hike, bike, swim, or participate in any physical activity if you have the pons in.
Step 14: When you’re ready, remove the tampon.
If you’re having a heavy flow, you may need to remove your feminine hygiene product sooner than you should.It’s important to keep an eye on it, especially when you’re new to using feminine hygiene products.If you see a lot of blood, or see blood in the toilet, this is a sign that you need to take your tampon out.This can be a sign that you didn’t insert it all the way, which is another reason to take it out.
Step 15: Don’t use the tampon.
If you want to be safe and not have to call the plumbing department if you have a problem with your feminine hygiene product, then you should wrap it up in some toilet paper.If you’re in a public bathroom, you should use a bin on the floor of the stall or the side door to discard your used feminine hygiene product.
Step 16: It’s a good idea to change your t-shirt every 8 hours.
You can insert another one if you remove your tampon.Unless you plan on sleeping for less than 8 hours, you may want to use a pad overnight.If your string is wet with menstrual fluid, it’s time to change it.It’s possible that the tampon is stuck because it hasn’t absorbed enough menstrual fluid yet.You should try again later if it has been less than eight hours.If there is a lighter absorbency, use it next time.Toxic Shock Syndrome is a very rare but potentially deadly consequence of leaving in your feminine hygiene product for more than 8 hours.You should get help if you’ve left a tampon in for longer than recommended and experience a rash or vomiting.
Step 17: The right amount of absorbency is needed for your flow.
It’s best to use feminine hygiene products with a lower absorbency.Start with a sanitary napkin.If you find that you have to change it more than once a day, then you should switch to a higher-absorbent one.As your period ends, you should use feminine hygiene products with the lightest absorbency.It’s more difficult to put the tampon in when you’re almost done with your period.When your period is over, you should stop using feminine hygiene products.If you don’t feel like your period is over yet, use a pantyliner for an extra day.
Step 18: You can never lose a pons inside your body.
The string that runs through the tampon is very strong and will never fall off.There is no way for the string to just detach from the tampon because it runs through it.You can try taking a new one and tugging on the string as hard as you can for a while, because it’s impossible to just take it off, and therefore not possible that the tampon will get stuck inside of you.This is a common fear that people have.
Step 19: You can still pee when you wear a feminine hygiene product.
Some people who wear feminine hygiene products don’t realize they can pee when they use them.You pee out of your urethral opening when you insert the tampon.The two holes in your bladder are not the same, so if you want to pee, you’ll have to use a tampon.Some people think that if they pee, the tampon will come out, but this is not the case.
Step 20: It’s possible for a girl of any age to start wearing a sanitary napkin.
You don’t have to be over the age of 16 or 18.It’s perfectly safe for girls younger than this to wear feminine hygiene products if they know how to use them.
Step 21: You won’t lose your virginity if you put a tampon in.
Some people think that if they use condoms before having sex, they will lose their virginity.This is completely false.While using a tampon can cause a girl to tear or stretch her hymen, nothing will make you lose your virginity other than sex.Virgins use the same contraceptives as non-virgins.
Step 22: There are no health problems that can be caused by wearing a tampon.
Contrary to what you may have heard, wearing a feminine hygiene product will not cause a yeast infection.There is no scientific proof that this is possible.Women tend to get yeast infections around the time of their period, which is why some people think this is the case.
