Tampons are a part of the routine life of all women, regardless of age. But sometimes, learning how to insert a tampon correctly can be challenging. There can be a learning curve for young users or those who just shifted to using a tampon instead of other sanitary napkins. The biggest concerns are:
•How to use a tampon correctly?
•Do tampons cause pain?
How to use a tampon correctly?
A tampon can be tricky if you do not know how to use or insert them. Here is a step by step guide on how you can best insert a tampon:
•Read the instructions on the box
•Always use clean hands to remove the wrapper
•Find a suitable and comfortable position
•Hold the tampon in one hand by the applicator
•On the other hand, open the labia (skin folds around vulva)
•Push the tampon gently into the vagina
•Push the plunger upwards to release it from the applicator
•Use the index finger to insert it all the way
It is necessary to acquaint yourself with the instruction and the correct body parts that are mentioned within. Please do a test run with a tampon to ensure how it works when inserted.
There are many types and sizes of tampons. Figuring out the right one for you is as much a trial and error thing as a judgment call.
How should a tampon feel after inserting?
When the correct instructions for inserting a tampon are followed, it should be barely noticeable. You will be comfortable at all times while wearing it. But of course, everybody is different. Some people may be a bit more aware of its presence, and for some, it may take a few hours to walk around with it comfortably.
Do tampons cause pain?
The next big question after you learn how to insert a tampon is to see if everything feels right. A lot of first-time uses experience mild pain, but it’s generally just discomfort. Your body is getting used to something new, and it can be a little uneasy. If what you are feeling is a real pain, then it is a cause for concern.
Tampons do not cause any short-term or long-term pain. The insertion, wearing, and removing should be a pain-free process.
If you experience pain that is more than general discomfort, consult a doctor. While tampons themselves do not cause any pain, too much discomfort may indicate some other health conditions or underlying diseases. It is always better to be safe, so be proactive and not dismiss any symptoms on account of using a tampon.
How to remove a tampon?
Removing a tampon should also be a painless process. The rule of the thumb is to relax before you try to remove it. Take a couple of deep breaths and unclench your muscles. If you are scared or clenching your muscle it can become a bit tricky.
After you have taken a few breaths, it’s time to find and tug on the string. Don’t pull too quickly. Keep breathing and pull it out gently.
If the tampon is dry for not absorbing much blood or not being used for long, it can be uncomfortable to remove. But it is not a cause for concern. The tampon is just not lubricated enough to slide out easily.
Word for the Wise
The body gets used to wearing it, and with practice and after figuring out the right kind for you, you get better at inserting, wearing, and removing it in a few seconds. Trying something new always involves growing pains. So, be patient and follow the proper instructions.
