Tampon sizing: Tampons actually come in various sizes with product manufacturers including some for light days. Try a smaller size to see if that works for you.

I'm experiencing pain from my first try with a tampon, about a week ago. I put it in and took it out immediately, due to pain. Will the pain go away?

I'm experiencing pain from my first try with a tampon, about a week ago. I put it in and took it out immediately, due to pain. Will the pain go away?

Should: You likely abraded or stretched the tissues that form the entrance to your vagina. You could also have reacted to any lubricant you may have used in the effort. Sounds like you should not use these now. They absorb fluids (thats why you use them) and the thickness can be more than double the insertion size. If you are sexually active, this should not be a problem and you should see an OBGYN. ...Read more

Can I go swimming without using a tampon?

Can I go swimming without using a tampon?

When not on a period: The only time a woman needs a tampon when swimming is during her menstrual periods (about 1/5 of the year). The rest of the time, no tampon is needed. A pregnant woman should not need a tampon.
