Some women do have problems inserting a tampon. We receive many member questions just like yours about having difficulty inserting a tampon.
Here are some things to try:
Get the smallest type of tampon you can find to start. Some women have success using tampax pearl for example.
The angle of insertion is important. Insertion while sitting on the toilet might help.
A lubricant such as KY jelly may help with insertion.
You might also want to discuss this with your gynecologist to see if there are any functional issues making it difficult to insert a tampon. Sometimes women who have a tilted uterus, for example, may find tampons problematic.
Of course there is the option to use pads.
You may want to discuss this with your doctor or gynecologist. Thank you for your question.
