If you have never used a tampon before, it's pretty easy. First, wash your hands. Next, prop your leg up onto the toilet or bathtub. Insert the tampon in until your fingers reach the skin, the push the applicator stick towards your lower back. Remove the applicator (never flush plastic ones) and tug a little bit on the tampon string to ensure it's there snugly. You're all done! If you can feel it inside you, that means you didn't push it in far enough, and you'll want to try again if you don't want to leak or be uncomfortable.
The correct way to use a tampon is to start by holding the tampon with the string end away from you. If you are left handed, use your left hand and your right if you are right handed. Pinch the tampon between your thumb and middle finger. You should be able to see and feel ridges around the middle of the tampon which will help you grip the tampon when you insert it. Next, place your index finger on the bottom of the tampon where the string is hanging. You will want to place the cotton side of the tampon just inside of your vaginal opening and now you will want to push the tampon into your vagina by pressing your index finger up toward yourself. Once you feel that you can no longer press, take the applicator and discard it. You should now be able to see the string hanging from between your legs. That is how you will remove the tampon. You will want to replace your tampon every couple of hours with a fresh one in order to avoid infection.
