I just recently started wearing tampons how can I make wearing them more comfy? It feeld like my cervixs are low and won't let it go in all the way
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. A tip on insertion- Place one foot on the toilet top to shorten the distance for vaginal entry and move the cervix upwards, plus it will tend to open the vaginal opening to accept the tampon more easily. ...Read more

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

Nice change: If I understand correctly you are saying you usually have heavy periods but this one is light. That is a nice change. Hopefully the light ones will continue in the future. Variations in the cycle from month to month do not usually mean much. ...Read more
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. A woman not worried about blood staining her swimsuit or clothing does not need a tampon when swimming in a river, lake, or ocean because the amount of water is infinitely larger than the amount of blood. ...Read more

My nuvaring came out with my tampon and fell in the toilet about half an hour ago. I don't have any more right now. What should I do?
8 days of soaking through the highest absorbancy tampons in 2 hours or less. Starting to feel weird should I go to the emergency room?
I have used tampons since I was 13, and recently I've been having trouble inserting them. It's like something is blocking then from going in.
Get exam: You know your body best, and since there is a definite change and you feel it is difficult to insert as if "something is blocking a tampon from going in" than you should get an evaluation from a gyn dr. To assess your vaginal area. Best wishes. ...Read more

I didn't put a tampon all the way in and it hurt the rest of the day but after I took it out there was a piece of flesh hanging out, what is it?
Hard to say what a "piece of flesh" is, but if it was anything other than a blood clot then you need immediate medical attention.
Blood that pools will stick together and make a dark red, brown, or blackish clot that some describe as looking like a piece of liver. You might also say it has the consistency of jello. ...Read more

Hello, I'm 42 and for the past 2 years my cycles have lasted 7 days. They are very very heavy the first 3 days. I go though a pad and tampon per hr.
Heavy bleeding: Heavy bleeding and irregular bleeding when not the norm for a woman during her cycles is a concern. The change in menstruation should be assessed by your PCP. Often a work up like this includes a pap, ultrasound, and sometimes a biopsy. Additionally, not common to many practices, a hormonal assessment could be very helpful as premenopausal hormone changes can occur earlier than expected. ...Read more
