Are tampons supposed to be uncomfortable?  No!  Wearing tampons shouldn’t be painful at all.  Make sure you’re doing it right and in the proper place.  Remember there is a correct way to insert a tampon.  Check out these guidelines:

  • If the pain occurs when putting the tampon in: Make sure you are gently sliding the applicator in slowly.  If the vagina is too dry, it can be hurtful.
  • If the pain occurs while the tampon is in: Perhaps, you are not shoving the tampon in far enough to the vagina.  Using a new tampon, try to re-slide it a little deeper.
  • If the pain occurs when taking it out: Tampon is probably too dry.  When the tampon is dampen, it will quickly come out with a pull on the string.  Also, avoid changing it too often.

Get Cora.
