Take a deep breath to relax. With your free hand, gently hold open the skin around the vaginal opening. Now take the o.b.® tampon, and with the full length of your index finger, ease it into your vagina, aiming toward your lower back. When the tampon is in the right place, you won’t feel it. If you do, push it a little further in. Leave the string hanging outside of your body. Wash your hands, and you’re done! It’s that simple.
When it’s time to remove your tampon (remember to change your tampon at least every 8 hours), here are a few more pointers. First wash your hands. Then take a deep breath to relax, gently but firmly tug at the string, and voilà! It’s out. Just throw it away in the garbage, wash your hands, and give yourself a high five.
