How To Use A Tampon

Some girls get nervous about using tampons for the time and are scared to ask the questions;
'How do I use one?' ' Will it hurt?' etc..

Most people find talking to a stranger or a friend for help on these subjects is better, rather than a parent as it can be quite embarrassing for most people. So think of me as good friend helping you threw something your might be very nervous about.

Things To Know Before You Start Using Tampons:

Before you use a tampon for the first time, it is important that you understand how it works and where it goes in your body. 
A tampon has four parts: the barrel, grip, plunger, and the tampon itself.

How to Use a Tampon:

1.With clean hands unwrap a fresh tampon and while standing or sitting in a comfortable position (what ever you feel more comfortable doing) 

2. Hold the applicator by the grip with your thumb and middle finger of one hand.

3. With your free hand spread the folds of skin around the vaginal opening and place the tip of the barrel in the opening of your vagina. All vaginas slant upwards towards your back. With this in mind gently slide the applicator in an upwards and backwards direction, some people will find it easier to slightly rotate or twist the applicator from side to side. Stop pushing when your thumb and finger touch your body.

4. Still holding the applicator by the grip, push the bottom of the applicator completely up inside the barrel. This will slides the tampon out of the applicator and into your vagina.

 5. Holding tight onto the grip and the barrel, they are now one inside the other, gently take out both the barrel and applicator tubes together. (they are connected). Wrapping them in tissue put the in the bin provided. You will now see that the cord of the tampon is now hanging down outside your body. Now wash your hands.

In a nut shell - The barrel goes inside you, you hold onto the grip (it stays outside) and you push the plunger into the barrel to insert the tampon inside you. Once its in place, you won’t be able to feel it. If you can feel it, then it’s not inside far enough.
