  • oh its because your vagina isn't actually straight. there is a curve and you're hitting the curve. you need to squat when you put it in and if you still hit it keep the tube in a adjust it by pulling it towards you and then push it in

  • I used to have this problem as a teenager. My mom had bought me KY lubricating jelly, and it helped a LOT! I just put a thin layer of it over the tampon and it went in easily. Also, the lubrication helps to move it around a little until its comfortable, without pain. Hope this helps.

  • Maybe you're cervix is at a strange angle. Have you tried standing and putting one leg up on the edge of the bathtub and then putting it in?

    If you're having a lot of difficulty, it might be worth asking your doc about it. Maybe s/he can help you.

  • Find a good position, maybe put a little lube on the applicator. It took me until I was almost 30 to learn to use a tampon. Sometimes they are hard to insert during the lighter part of your cycle.

  • Push it in towards your butt not up towards your head. Your vagina is parallel to the ground not to your spine.

  • I know! They irritate me,they don't fit right or something. However, what I did find was, a good position (angle) and use Tampons (pearl) they tend to glide and are less restrictive than the regular cardboard ones (in my opinion) Here is the link, check em outhttp://www.tampax.com/en-US/products/Pages/products.aspx

  • I can't wear them either. I think my cervix is low. Also, I always hated that cottony feeling. Have you ever tried Insteads? They are great, you can't feel them and you can wear them up to 8 hrs straight.
