Step 1. Wash your hands with soap and water before putting in a tampon.
Step 2. Take a comfortable position, whether you prefer standing or sitting. You might want to put one foot up on the toilet if you’re standing.
Step 3. Open the folds (labia) that surround your vaginal opening with one hand.
Step 4. Push the tampon applicator into your vagina while holding it in the middle.
Step 5. Push the inner portion of the applicator tube up through the outer portion of the tube once the applicator is inside.
Step 6. Finally, remove the outer tube from your vagina. The applicator should extrude from both sides.
Step 7. Once inserted, the tampon should feel at ease. The string can be later used to draw the tampon back out.
