Girls only please!

If the bottom of a tampon is sticking out a little bit, is it not in far enough. (I'm new to tampons and I'm not sure how far to put it in.)

It's not all the way in, you should only have the string part hanging out.

It's not in far enough .. It should be completely inserted .. with only the string left outside for removal.

It's not in far enough. Pull it out and put a new one in. When you are first learning to use tampons, try to put them in when your flow is heaviest. It will slide in easier. Make sure you use the correct absorbency size to. If its to big it will be hard to get in and could bother you. I would start with the smallest usualy called lights or slenders or teens (something like that). This way you can get use to how to use it. Use a panty liner or pad as back up if the tampon leaks a little until you figure out the right size and placement. Keep in mind that not everyone can wear them for various reasons but lots of woman really like them. Keep trying. EDIT when you insert the tampon, you need to push the applicator at least until your fingers touch your body to get it far enough up.

Definitely wear a liner or pad as back up, especially when you have a heavy flow. Rather safe than sorry!

If it's in correctly, it should be completely inserted. You should only be able to see the string

You might want to check that you have the right size. You should only be able to see the string.

I love these questions! I had the best advice from my gyno when I first started! She made a ring with her middle finger and thumb, and said "pretend this is your vagina" there is a muscle in there and in order for the tampon to fit perfectly and comfortably you have to get it passed that muscle. What i do..I hold the tampon as close to the end as possible(by the string), though you need to have a good grip with your fingers. I go all the way in until the tips of my fingers press against my labia(lips). You may need to put a leg up on the toilet or lean back a bit..some cervix are tilted. I usually just stand up straight. Also!, use plastic applicator...not those crappy cardboard ones. Playtex gentle glide work the best..depending on your flow, i would start with regular or slender.
