    Same here! First of all, just relax. Aim for the small of your back. Put a little water based lubricant on the tip for ease in insertion. And if it STILL doesn't work, you may be one of the small percentage with a problem with the hymen. Some have small holes in them, no holes, or two holes, all of which make it near impossible or very painful to insert one.

    Hi hun it doesn't sound ridiculous, I had the same a few years ago, it could be something to do with your hymen. It may not be broken yet. I had the same problem before mine actually broke. I got to the point of just getting fed up with it not going in far enough and using pads instead. Once my hymen was broke (this was actually after I'd had sex for the first time) things are much easier going in to my vagina. I'm not saying, have sex, not at all till you're ready but there are ways to break your hymen other than sex. You can break your hymen by using tampons, masturbating and even some sports like horse riding and bike riding too. I tried some of these and in the end mine just broke during sex for the first time. Hope I helped.

    OMG u know i have the same exact problem so i dont think its gross... i've been embaressed to ask this question so i just gave up on tampons cuz ive tried absolutly everything! im gonna get thumbs down for sayng ths but i bet that none of these will help cuz it didnt help me, but keep trying! u might not b ready for them yet, but just keep trying every day u have ur period, and one day it will go in... even if its when ur 21. thats really all i can do to help, i know it probably didnt help but all i can offer is moral support, cuz everyones already said everythiing else. good luck!

    You need to relax... if you are tense it won't go in. Also, you should try using a mirror the first couple of times - it helped me a lot.

    Get some KY Gelle, and make sure that you are not putting it in the wrong hole (not the one you pee out of)

    just make sure your relaxed and insert it invery slowly. make sure you insert it in a upward like position. and try it many times if it feels uncomfortable. if it still feels uncomfortable, you might need to use a smaller size

    put some sort of lubricant on it, like petroleum jelly, and it helps a lot
