The Right Way to Insert a Tampon with an Applicator

When you are new to using tampons, it can be a very intimidating transition. However, more than 70 percent of women use some form of tampon to absorb their menstrual cycle. The advantage you have with tampons is that it absorbs your menstrual flow before it exits your body. This is an advantage to maxi pads because you do not have to face the embarrassment of improperly placing the maxi pad, creating the opportunity for a leak to develop.

The Right Way to Insert a Tampon with an Applicator
Inserting a tampon may be intimidating at first. However, when you insert one the right way, you can dramatically reduce the risk of leaks and the risk of discomfort. By following these basic instructions, you will ensure that it is inserted properly, with minimal discomfort. When you are inserting organic tampons, you should follow the same instructions as you would with any other tampon.

  • Always wash your hands with soap and water before and after tampon insertion.
  • When you are inserting a tampon, you can choose to sit or stand, as long as it is a comfortable position. Hold the tampon just like you would hold a pencil. Inspect the applicator to ensure that the removal string is visible and not tucked inside the smaller tube.
  • With your free hand, open the folds of skin outside the vaginal opening. You will be inserting the tampon at an angle, which points toward your lower back. Once you achieve this angle, push the applicator gently into your vagina. If the angle is uncomfortable, adjust as necessary.
  • When you have properly inserted the applicator, your fingers should touch the outside of your body and the smaller tube will be completely visible outside of your body.
  • Gently push the outer tube of the applicator until it is flush with the bottom portion of the barrel, or larger portion of the applicator. This will ensure that the tampon has completely discharged from the barrel.
  • Ensure that you are not putting any pressure on the removal string and remove the applicator through the vaginal opening. Entrapping the removal cord will pull the tampon out of place, which may cause some discomfort.
  • If you feel any discomfort, this means the tampon is not properly inserted. Pull the removal cord firmly to remove it and insert a fresh tampon.

You will know that your tampon is properly inserted by how it feels. If you feel discomfort, the tampon is either too large for your body type, or you have incorrectly inserted the tampon. Over time, you will learn the correct placement, and you will immediately be able to tell if the barrel is located in the right position to ensure proper insertion.
