Stop, see, & consult: Based on what reported, it is logical to just stop further use of tampon, wait, and see. If symptoms does not gradually subside as expected in 2-5 days, seek evaluation and counseling for assuring no UTI or injury and future proper use of tampon.

Probably not: You may have irritated your urethra ( tube you pee through) which is very close to the opening of the vagina. This is not unusual. I recommend drinking A LOT of water so that you keep flushing the urethra. The irritation should eventually diminish. If not better in a day, see a doctor or gynecologist to test for a urinary tract infection

Possibilities: It is possible that you mildly irritated the urethra when placing the tampon. Increase your fluid intake. If symptoms get worse then see a doctor

Get checked: Of this is new, in other words,if it didn't happen before when you used tampons, you may need to get chaw led to see if there is some inflammation.
