My tampon is stuck.?

It's my first time using a tampon, and of course as most do their first time, I put it in a but not completely. Though I should have pushed it further up, I couldn't because I was in pain. I tried to remove it, but the pain was getting worse. I decided to wait a few hours to see if it'll be easier to remove due to saturation. A few hours later, and I have been in the bathroom for over an hour. It hurts tremendously to get it out. What do I do?

    Just pull. Like taking a plaster off, get it over and done with.

    Sit in a bath if it helps.

    Go to Youtube - lots of videos there about taking out stuck tampons.

    If you cannot remove it on your own, you will have to go to urgent care or the ER for assistance. You cannot leave a tampon in place for more than 8-10 hours because it will start to smell and cause infections (with a potential for toxic shock syndrome). Stop being stubborn or embarrassed. Doctors are professionals who have seen it all, they are used to all types of emergencies (including gynecological issues). Go to get help if you have to.
