Then don't use it: If you are a virginal female the opening in your hymen may not be large enough for you to use tampons. These get larger in diameter after they absorb menstrual blood, so if you could get it in, it would be hard/painful to remove.If you are sexually active this would not be the case. Ask a girlfriend for pointers.
