How To Use Tampons | Everything you Need To Know To Survive Your Period!

Girls and teens should opt for slender tampons because they are smaller, easier to insert, remove, and manage. Some tampons come with cardboard or plastic applicators that help the tampon move up the vagina and into place. Other tampons have stick applicators or none at all. Yes, tampons are completely safe for your teen as long as you follow a few rules: Replace the tampons every four to five hours. Insert a fresh tampon before going to bed and then, after waking up and even before.

Use a pad overnight. Tips and Tricks for Using a Tampon If you are having trouble getting the tampon in, try lubricating the rounded end of the tampon with a water-based lubricant such as KY Jelly. Don’t use petroleum jelly. Always read the manufacturer’s instructions before using any type of tampon. Try a tampon with a plastic applicator in a junior size.

In addition, advise your daughter to use her finger in order to understand the angle of insertion before she needs to use the tampon. anonymous I would say that ob’s or something that doesn’t have an applicator might work better. Keep the following tips in mind when using tampons: Choose tampons according to your flow: Don’t use a tampon for a higher flow than what you have. If used for lighter flows, super-absorbent tampons can stick to the vaginal walls, causing tiny tears when you remove them.

Once the outer tube of the tampon is inside her vagina, ask your daughter to use her index finger and push the inner tube. While doing so, the string should not go inside the vagina and should instead hang outside. Once your daughter inserts the tampon properly, ask her to use her thumb and her index finger to take out the outer tube. Your vaginal opening is not too small.

Like the vagina, the vaginal opening can stretch easily. It is a fact the your vaginal opening can stretch just like it is a fact that your hair will grow! If you are having a hard time inserting your first tampon, try the light absorbency tampons.

Change your tampon every 8 hours or sooner as needed. Once you remove your tampon, you can go ahead and insert another one. Most people don’t sleep in tampons, and you may want to use a pad overnight instead, unless you plan on sleeping for less than 8 hours. If your tampon string is wet with menstrual fluid, then it’s time to change your tampon. Young girls and teens generally find tampons with applicators easier to use when they begin their period.

Tampons come in various shapes and sizes with different levels of absorbency and are designed to hold from six to eight grams of blood. Depending on your flow, amounts of blood lost may vary and the tampon size you use will change. Tampons are less bulky and less messy than pads, which are the biggest selling points for those who use them.

Beginners should start with slender tampons that come in plastic applicators. Cardboard.

List of related literature:

To reduce the risk of TSS, select a tampon with the minimum absorbency range needed to control menstrual flow, change your tampon every 4-6 hours or as needed, alternate between the use of external sanitary (hygienic) pads and tampons, or simply avoid the use of tampons.

  • Guys. Just thimkkk I haven’t bought any yet but I have asked my mum I AM 12. Like I am like dis gonna hurt and just think shuv it up there and u ain’t gunna

  • For those of you that are nervous, don’t be it’s really not that bad just go for it. It may feel a little weird when going in but after it’s in you shouldn’t feel anything:) (I’ve just successfully inserted a tampon today!)

  • I’m so scared I got my period in COVID and I’ve never gone to school with it and I’m going into middle school so three stressful things in one year

  • I was so confused, I used a mirror to try to locate my woohaa because I had no idea where tampons are supposed to be inserted, AND I COULD NOT TELL WHAT STUFF I WAS LOOKING AT, LIKE I SAW SEVERAL HOLES LMAO

  • i’m really nervous cuz i’m 15 and had it for 5 months now and i think i’m about to start either tomorrow or reallyyyy soon. i haven’t ‘explored’ down there and i’m scared it’s gonna hurt.

  • Pushing the applicator in is easy for me. (I did push it completely in according to the manual) But I feel pain when pushing the tampon in. Is that normal? No one seem to be talking about it. I really need some help!

  • Today was my first time using one and taking it out and putting them in was the hardest part bc I was so confused on how to buh when I got it.. it wasn’t that bad. Taking it out kinda hurt but wasn’t an pain I couldn’t take

  • I was somehow able to put in a tampon in the morning but now I should change it and I have to go through it again ���� also am I the only one who doesn’t have tampons with applicator?

  • Caution do not keep it left in ur vagina for more than 6 8 hours otherwise you ll get within 24 hrs duration Toxic shock syndrome which is fatal to life sometimes even amputation is required

  • You guys should totally try it. It will be SO worth it once you can get it in. Just keep trying and don’t be nervous, bc you have no reason to!

  • ☠️Am I the only one that only like wearing comfortable stuff like sweatpants, oversized t shirts and hooddies when im on my period and like when I have to go to school we have a school uniform: white t shirt, tight skirt and white Thights with a blazer. I’M ALREADY DYING AND I HAVE TO WEAR THIS XNDNDKDIEBDEKSKDJDJ☠️

  • Omg I remember when I was super excited to get my first period, then when I finally got it I was like yay. Then came next month, PERIODS ARE GROSS, YUCK, PAINFUL, BLOODY, MESSY AND UNCOMFORTABLE ��! And boys think they have it easy!

  • The most awkward moment is when you have to change your tampon during class but u don’t know how to grab your tampon from your bag without people seeing u

  • They really need to teach this in school. Young girls should not be afraid or nervous about asking for guidance when it comes to your period. Don’t be afraid to ask a friend your parents or even a teacher(a female teacher) any questions

  • bruh I’m 13, and I’m going to the beach tomorrow with my dad, his friend and his friend’s daughter, he told me this literally 10 minutes ago and I just can’t say “no sorry I don’t wanna come”
    currently binging all the videos I find about tampons �� wish me luck lol

  • me: realizes that a penis has to go in me to have sex
    also me: scared to put in a tampon
    yet again, me: “yup. i’m never gonna have sex”

  • I cant get it in and I just happened to wait until the day before I swim in my friends pool and I’m realizing now how hard this is now��

  • It’s not like your gonna ask someone if your 20 something. The women in my family have bad tampon stories… mom never wore them and aunt said almost fainted when trying So not like they have experience either lol

  • I’m 13 and this helped me I got my first period when I was 12 and I told my mom and she asked if I wanted a pad or tampon I said pad because I was afraid to use a tampon but now when I get my period again I want to try using a tampon so I get use to using it



  • Pads are so uncomfortable but I have to wear them cause of discharge and period but I try to get used to them but I can’t I’ve tried many different ones all and uncomfortable for me

  • Ive been using tampons for 2 years (I’m 15 and started 2 years ago) and I use them all the time. I just got a menstrual cup and I hope I start using that now

  • This is my second period and right when i got it i went to the store and bought the smallest tampons and its rly scary when u do it but now its fine! But the hardest part is to find the right hole.. i mean i looked for hours…

  • Omg so I wasted a ton of tampons and I still can’t get it in! I’m just to scared! I got the smallest tampons I found and I can’t get it in! ��

  • I’m trying to put a tampon in with a Harry Styles and a Louis Tomlinson and a Niall Horan poster and I feel rlly weird like they are watching me put one in I feel like they should turn around or something ��

  • Im 14 started at 12 or 13 idk i have only used tampons for swimming only i hate them so i only use them for swimming if i am on my period

  • first time i tried to do it i took a bath so the bathroom was to hot and hotness mixed with period mixed with being scared made me pass out. but i am willing to try again!����a bit scared tho

  • I am ✨terrified✨ because I’m going on holiday tomorrow and we’re going swimming every day. Oh and by the way I just started my first period. Someone help!

  • Everytime I try it I can feel it and i keep taking it out when I feel it in my vagina because I’m nervous and I’ve watched millions of videos and it still feels weird. Any tips?

  • I’m having ballet class in like 4 hours and it’s the first time I’m attempting ;-; why am I scared that its not gonna work and I’m gonna either be late for class or have it leak during class oh my god I need to calm down

  • Dude, I’m 12, going back to school in two days, and I haven’t gotten it yet and I’m literally TERRIFIED that I’m gonna get it in public!!!! HELPPPPPPP!!!!!!!!!������

  • I’m a man and i have no idea as to why I’m here, but i do understand how certain ladies feel when they’re going through such phase.

  • Thank you so much for making this video thsi was very helpful! I dont know if this will be tmi but i know know how to take in and out a tampon thanks again for making this video!!!!

  • So I’m going to a hotel for a party and I’m on mine so I have to use one but I’m scared the string will get stuck inside.. any tips?

  • once I tried putting one in but it wasnt in far enough and I tried pulling it out but I couldnt cause there wasnt enough… lubrication yet so I fell on my knees crying in my room cause I thought I was gonna die of toxic shock

  • I go to the beach in 2 days…..I’ve tried once and couldn’t get it in, but I’m determined to go swimming cause its hecka hot out, so imma try again ����

  • For my fellow offsprings-of-religious-catholic-mothers, it’s okay children. Using a tampon doesn’t mean your a w**re, it doesn’t mean you lost your virginity. You shouldn’t use it all the time tho. Good luck. Today was my first time using a tampon and there wasn’t any pain and as soon as I figured out what to pull/push it went in smoothly.

  • Mine started when I went to a school trip for 3 days and we went snorkeling so it was very difficult good thing my friend was there ����

  • Idk my mum told me that you wear a tampon only if you were pregnant but here I am and the way that you put the tampon in our body scares me.

    P.s:why I’m here I’m 13 ��

  • When I got my first period I was wearing my favorite panties and when I asked the teacher to go to the nurse to get pads since I didn’t have any a guy heard and started laughing saying “gaby got her period” luckily my best friend was in that class and gave me her period bag

  • okay thank you so much, i am a 13 year old girl and am terrified of tampons and stuff like that. my school teaches me nothing about women’s health and anatomy. does it hurt to put in?

  • I have super irregular periods so I get them only a few times a year which is good for me cause I hate when I get mine. Last time I had my period was three months ago.

    I always wear pantiliners because I always have a lot of vaginal discharge which is annoying. So last night I randomly felt a huge gush when I sat up in my bed and lucky for me I had a pantiliner on cause it was my period.

  • Hi!
    I’m only 10 tommorows my birth day but i got my period.
    I use pads for now but tempons sound more comfortable.Once i get older i’m gonna use tempons,•u• this video helped alot since my older sister got her first period pads were uncomfortable for her so i showed her this video and it helped a lot! Thanks for the tips!

  • i’m a seventh grader laying on my bathroom floor crying cus my sister isn’t letting me wear her bathing suit and i have to put in a tampon because i’m going swimming help

  • I had my period when we were in Greek (not the first one) but before that I just used Pads bur then I was like,.. uh but I want to go into the pool when it’s 40°C I can’t stay outside or im dying so I had to put in a tampon very fast also because my parents were waiting outside for me to go to the pool ���� but I did it and was able to go in the pool ��☺
    Ps: Im German so pls don’t complain about my english

  • I’ve never used pads lol. The first time I got my period, I went right to tampons. It didn’t even hurt, and it took me 2 seconds IDK why

  • I
    Love…… You.. So… So much also.. always.. forever.. really
    I am single….
    I am alone…… ��������������❤❤❤❤❤

  • 10:24 to track my period I personally use clue, and it also tracks symptoms, ovulation, BBT, and more. It also estimates when your next period is coming based on your symptoms. It has been really helpful for me, especially since I just got my period about three months ago.

  • i want to start using tampons but i’m scared…..i use pads and as many of you beautiful women know every time u stand up it’s like a waterfall ��

  • I need help I am going on a dance camp for a week and I am going to have my period the whole week i don’t know what to do I can’t take any painkillers I’m afraid that I’m going to bleed trough �� idk how to handle it

  • I got my first period in November last year, why did I want this. Just why. But thank you for this video I want to try tampons, pads can be so uncomfortable sometimes

  • I waste my 20$ for 32 pieces of tampons, when i first try to put it I felt discomfort and I just pull it and not to use tampon. It hurts gurl and im so scred thats why i never use it again.

    I’m 12 years old and started my first period 2 days ago it was painless and I felt nothing, just a little uncomfortable putting it in at first. You got this girls!!������

  • I still don’t get it…my hands are bloody, my vergin said done, I’m scared,and scared if it gets stuck, I’ll be using pads thank you, peeing is a issue I think, I’m too lazy to take it out at night, and I’ll never use a tampon ever again…

  • Thx for the video because I JUST put my first tampon in. I first had to locate the right hole and when I did, I started to slowly push it in and when it was all the way in, I didn’t see the string and was about to panic. But then I remembered what you said about having to pull it out and then the string will show, so I did and I sighed with relief����THANKS ALOT FOR THIS VID!! Also, there was no pain or
    Anything, it just felt… foreign����‍♀️

  • So I tried one today..but I can feel something uncomfortable when I sit or stand..is it normal?
    If not please tell me the correct way to insert it without an applicator(we don’t get an applicater here lol)

  • Wait so you’re saying you got it in first time trying ever???? I’ve tried 6 times and I still haven’t gotten one in ������‍♀️ you’re so lucky, I’m a cheerleader and do a lot of activities and I’m a actor so it would be great if I could get one in but I’m not gonna force it��

  • Little TMI, but if you’re having a really hard time finding any type of opening/hole lying down with a mirror really helps to find the hole. I legit thought I didn’t have one somehow, but then I lied down and was able to see it more clearly! Still haven’t been able to get it in though sadly://

  • my first time getting my period was at school and i told my best friend and we went into the stall together and i was scared to use a tampon so she put it in for me ��

  • i literally cant do it i got it close to the hole and i started freaking out i couldn’t get myself to put it in. please someone help i can’t do this i’m so scared please ��

  • I.wanted to try one my mum said I don’t bleed enough I asked for a diva cup and she said no i think she just doesn’t want to have to help��

  • So I looked at a tampon took it out stuck it in me pushed the applicator and then pulled out. Well I’m so smart. I was able to do it first try!!! 😉 DONT worry it ain’t hurt!

  • 20 minutes till i gotta leave for school and i just started my period again today and i just hate it cuz it’s always so mf heavy and leaks eventually

  • I am almost 20 and I have NEVER used a tampon. I’m so scared to. BUT tomorrow I am going to try it for the first time. Wish me luck:))

  • I was scared too, I’m like her the first time I tried didn’t work I’ve not tried for years. I’m still virgin, I’ve now tried a tampon again, I got it too! I think I will be buying tampons! finally. But, to first-timer. What should I buy?

  • me freaking out watching this trying to learn really fast because i’m going to a water park today and i have to learn by 9am and it’s 5:45 am

  • Holy fuck I just had a moment of realization that not everybody wears tampons I know that sounds so stupid but like every girl in my life wears tampons.I have never worn pads my first period my mom just handed me a tampon and said,”put it in” and that was my first story lol.This is TMI but my best friend was over at my house and she got her first period and all we had in the house was tampons and she couldn’t figure out how to get it in so I put it in FOR HER but I mean we had known eachother since birth.

  • Im 12 and just used a tampon I tried last night didn’t work it really hurt so I tried again today and alot better and I think it will be easier the more I use them, I started using them now because I feel like pads feel really gross sitting in your own blood if the makes sense

  • I got my period in fourth grade when I was ten and now that I’m in seventh grade I’m thinking about asking my mom if I can try a tampon

  • i wore a tampon today (not the first time) and i am pretty heavy i leaked a ton and i am so happy i wore a pad i suggest wearing something if you are really heavy and you can’t change it often

  • Anyone else legit having a mental breakdown, insanely scared, while your mom isn’t here and everyone else are men and everyone else is swimming while it’s 90+ degrees?

  • Any tips on how to use a tampon without an applicator? We’re going to our lake for the rest of the summer and all we have are OB tampons and I’m used to ones with an applicator!(I’m 14) Any tips? We have pads too but it would be helpful <3

  • i know how what vagina hole to put it in but the first time my sister helped me i had a mimi panic attack it felt weird cuz of the plastic (still using pads since im a wuss ����

  • like i can’t find it she said it had tissue but i don’t know if it’s a hole too it just looks like a little pp is that it? like i can’t find ittt

  • This is weird bc I’m 11 and my period started when I was 10….I did it right thank god im too scared to talk to my mom about my period so I keep it secret��‍����

  • For those who are worried, you’ll know when you’re ready, practice at home as soon as you feel discomfort take it out, there are many sizes and shapes it’s all about what suits you!

  • My sister did it FIRST TRY and I am too scared to even try. I am dreading the next time I get my period because I have swim practice.

    Male teacher:no.

    Me:why not?

    Male teacher: cant you wait till the lesson is over


    Male teacher:why

    Me:do you really wanna know? Girl stuff.

    Male teacher: lets me go to bathroom


  • I recently started using tampons and I’m seeing a lot of comments saying that tampons are scary, and I just want to say that unless you have a medical reason or you put in wrong, it doesn’t hurt! I know tampons look super scary and if you like pads or anything else better that’s totally fine!! Remember to aim to your lower back when putting it in, and once its in you shouldn’t feel anything (or like I said unless you have a medical reason)
    😀 I hope you have a good day!

  • I feel like I’m doing it wrong and its not going up high tmi it felt out when I was peeing lol anyone can tell me if I’m doing it wrong

  • I’m 13 and I am extremely embarrassed and nervous, I was actually thinking about deleting this from my history

    But between reading the comments and watching this video I was actually able to do it

    Honestly I’m sorry but I didn’t believe you I thought you were just sugarcoating it, but this was actually very informative and helpful

    I’m still really embarrassed however now I’m more comfortable and at ease thank you so much, truly, from the bottom of my heart

    I appreciate you and the people in the comments, thank you so much!

  • Did you know that if you don’t keep hydrogen peroxide in a dark container it’ll eventually just become water I learned that in science don’t know if it’s true

  • I remember almost a year ago (I’m 14 now) I was at a hotel and there was a pool so I really wanted to swim but I was one my period and only wearing pads. So my dad went out of the room and my mom tried to help me through the bathroom door. I did it wrong so it hurt and then I started crying because I was scared. I ended up not going swimming and just using pads. I still only wear pads now because I haven’t tried tampons again.

  • I just started my period today and I was never scared for a tampon and it worked perfectly the first time. Is this normal for others? Why is everyone so scared of a tampon?

  • I’m 26 years old and I just learned about this…No… Seriously… I don’t have the guts to try this….It looks so scary…. I won’t… Never…

  • I’m going to a lake tommarow. Never worn a tampon before. And I feel like it would be to awkward having my mom show me how. SCARED.

  • I Honestly can’t like believe me I can’t insert a tampon while standing,leg up or whatever like the way they instruct me to

    So basically what I do Is I lay on my back like I’m about to do sit ups then slightly open my legs and put it in I don’t even feel a thing when I do so that’s basically the way I insert em

  • wait I regret not trying this out earlier bc my period is still pretty heavy and I have DANCE CLASS in 3 hours and I’m so stressed…! I don’t have enough time to keep retrying and I’m stuck… ;-; I’m so scared it’s not gonna work or it’s gonna leak or something…

  • O.B. Pro Comfort is the best invention for women! Glides smoothly and doesn’t give that dry, painful feeling like their cheaper versions

  • Okay this might be tmi but I’m 15 and I’ve tried using probably 15 tampons and I have gotten some in but it always uncomfortable. I swear I put it in far enough I’m so confused

  • My legs get painful and I can barely walk, sometimes I hate going to school because some of the pills I use don’t even work for me


  • Currently binge watching videos about how to enjoy vacation while on your period. I’m so lucky i have no idea if my period will hit me when I’m enjoying a day at the lake cause my periods irregular yayyy

  • finally convinced my mom to let me use a tampon. surprised because she believes using a tampon removes your virginity lol. got it in my 2nd try

  • I JUST tried like 5 mins ago to use a tampon but I couldn’t get it right and I just needed to see other people be super chill about it to make me feel better. I also talked to my friend who uses tampons and she confirmed it takes a few times to get it right the first time.
    So thank you for making me feel better about it, I’m gonna go try again
    Just for like. Brand and size reasons so I could maybe get extra tips from people: m

    I’m using the u by Kotex tampons. I usually have a rEALLY heavy flow and I usually use u by Kotex overnight pads for my first few days of my period and then I use the heavy flow ones for the last few days.
    When buying the tampons I went wih the box that has 10 reg flow and 10 super flow. Cuz I wasn’t sure how the flow translated to tampons for me and I didn’t wanna cause myself any unnecessary pain. SO
    I tried with a reg flow and I couldn’t seem to get it right. Idk if it’s the applicator or what. Maybe I’m doing it wrong?
    Idk. Any tips are appreciated

  • I have no idea why this showed up on my recommended but I had to give it a watch even though I’m 34 haha and have used tampons, but after reading the comments I wanted to pop in and just say to the girls who are just starting out, don’t rush this. Don’t feel like you have to use tampons because everyone else seems to be or because it feels like the more grown up option, or whatever. just don’t rush it. Get to know your body and do it when you are ready. I remember trying them when I first got my period at 11 years old and it totally put me off haha. I barely use them even to this day. So yeah go with your body and don’t feel pressure to rush it xx

  • Can we use a tampon on our first ever period? I’m 14? Also I tried inserting it but it hurt? Like it was hitting a wall and also I could feel it when I sat down. HELPPPP

  • i got mine yesterday, school starts tomorrow and I’m scared, I’m literally the first one in my class and I’m 10 still in primary school. I was scared as flipping hell, and turns out it isn’t bad, it doesn’t hurt. Not even embarrassing. Don’t be scared you will be fine just a little bit to get used too. Also try a period app they predict your period.

  • Im just now starting experimenting at 19 and thought maybe there’s something wrong with me since i found insert anything into me at all or that i was too small.

    Well im not its just i dont hsve the right tampons..now im just afraid of the string snapping or my veronica clenching too hard and i cant get it out.

    My mom warned me of it being dry and how painful it can be and it scares me to think of that happening ����

  • I put it in and I did it right but then I freaked out because I’ve never really had anything in there especially for hours at a time and pulled it out immediately.

  • I’m 16 but I’m too scared of using a tampon, I feel like it’ll hurt me. And my mom hasn’t used one either so she can’t even help me from experience. Can anyone experienced with this tell me if it actually hurts too much or am I over thinking? And what is the best way to use to it for the first time for painfree insertion?
    Btw thank you glamrs, this video did help! ❤️

  • me in bed at 2 a.m wearing a heavy pad and crying cause its sooo uncomfortable and feels like im wearing a diaper.
    so I looked up how to put in a tampon for beginners I’ve put in tampons a lot but I couldn’t last that long in them cause it hurt but now I know I need to put it in farther ty!!

  • I was 13 and I was on my third period When I first decided to use a tampon and it went so smoothly is that normal? Also the tampon that you girls are showing in this video is my first ever tampon that I’ve ever used lol

  • I just can’t understand why would someone go through all of this. There’s literally no reason why anyone would shift from a pad to a tampon. All points shown seem why you should never buy a tampon lol.
    And ask mom, sis, etc was hilarious…why would anyone know…
    I just cannot understand how they’ve started selling in Indian market now.
    TSS is A rare, life-threatening complication of certain bacterial infections.

  • In my friend’s bag
    Her water bottle leaked
    My other friend had to pass her pad but it was so awkward
    Boys were watching
    They were disgusted
    Boys Should get used to it it’s just natural why do they find things disgusting when they know girls don’t want to talk about it.

Help??

I never even knew there was cotton in there. Man I wish I knew before. I haven’t gone swimming since fifth grade because I didn’t want to wear a tampon. Why was this not explained in sex ed???
