How far in is a tampon supposed to go in?
Insert it as far as your middle finger and thumb, at the grip – or middle – of the applicator. Once the barrel is comfortably inside, hold the grip and push with your index finger on the smaller tube to push the absorbent part of the tampon into the vagina. Push this until it meets the grip and your other fingers.
Should I be able to feel my tampon when I sit down?
Do tampons hurt? If the tampon isn’t inserted far enough into your vagina, you might feel a little discomfort, especially when you sit. But when a tampon is properly inserted, you shouldn’t notice it at all.

Are tampons supposed to hurt the first time?
A tampon may hurt the first time you try to insert it, but it shouldn’t be bad. You shouldn’t feel it once it’s in, so if there still is pain or discomfort, you may not have inserted it correctly. A good rule of thumb: If your tampon feels at all uncomfortable, take it out!
