Pain When Removing Tampons
I'm a 16 y/o girl. I lost my virginity to another virgin 5 days ago. Now experiencing severe, abnormal pain both when inserting and removing tampons?
Position?: If what you're stating is that you feel dizzy when you bend over to pull the tampon out, putting your head down around your waist and looking upside down, this would be normal. There are nerves near the cervix which can cause a drop in blood pressure and dizziness too, so both could be the cause. If persists, see family doc, internist or neurologist. ...Read more

Today was the first time that I wore a tampon. After removing it my period stopped & hasn't start back as yet (7 hours later). Why? - 18 y/o, virgin
No worries: A tampon soaks up blood far more efficiently than a pad. It may take a few hours for the remaining blood to make its way out now. Tampons are so comfortable you can forget you have one. Always check at the end of a period to be sure you have removed the last one, especially if you notice any unusual odor. Use the least absorbent size/type you need for your level of bleeding. ...Read more
I'm on my period and when removing tampon a clump came out that looked like lining or sac of some kind is this normal?
Could be just: Clotted blood, or increased cervical mucus. Sometimes hormonal fluxes occur in a woman's body and you bleed more than normal, or with more cervical mucus. If you are on birth control pills, this change could be due to variation in the pill's hormonal content, or your very own. Monitor and see if this increase returns. Have your periods been regular? ...Read more
Ttc and 1 day late. Put a tampon in and tiny bit of brown discharge on it after removing it. Nothing else. Neg test where is period?
Irregularity common: Being a day or two late in one month is not uncommon, especially if you've had a stressful month or had changes to your weight. Retake your pregnancy test if your period hasn't come in a week. If your cycle is being more irregular than the past for a couple months in a row see your doctor for evaluation. ...Read more

Started using tampons, change it every 2/3 hours but now vagina walls feel a bit sore from inserting and Removing tampons all day. Will I get TSS?

That's a tough one!: I doubt that having sex with tampon in place had anything in particular with you not having a period. I presume you could have an infection with delayin menses or maybe you just had one of those months where you skip. Pregnance is always the ultimate cause of no period. Get a pregnancy test. See gyn if there continues to be a problem. ...Read more
Yes!!!: Yes, of course. Start with a small size. Read the directions - you may want to use a small mirror the first time. The first one or two will not be super comfortable, but don't worry, you'll get used to them very quickly and they're so much more convenient than pads. ...Read more
Remember: A tampon can cause your hymen to be torn - not always though. Unfortunately some people equate a torn hymen with a person not being a "virgin". Even vigorous activity can lead to your hymen being torn. ...Read more
Bring up knees: Most important is either bending over or laying on your back to insert a tampon. Most come with an applicator that makes placing it in the vagina easier so that the absorbent part of the tampon doesn't scrape against vagina tissue and make it irritated. Most tampons have diagrams in each package. I bet there's even a youtube video, though I haven't checked. Good luck! ...Read more
It’s a good idea to use the smallest size tampon when you are learning how for the first time. It is also easier to insert it when your period is moderate to heavy as this allows the tampon to glide in more easily.
If the tampon is inserted correctly, you should not feel it. If you feel uncomfortable in any way, you may have inserted it incorrectly or not in enough. Never force it in! ...Read more
