I was like the same!
One time I put one in and it scared the life out of me.
I had one fully in and I was so proud! Then everything started dimming, like the lights & I felt like something wasn't right, so I went down to the bathroom to take it out.
I actually started shaking so fast (sort of like a seizure, but it wasn't) and I was so scared.
I was so worried that I couldn't take it out, so I got really dizzy...and fell down ( I couldn't remember what happened for a couple minutes)
It was so scary, my sister needed to help my naked a**! She said I got so pale and my eyes were wide and she didn't know what to do. (She's my age...we're 18 home alone at one in the morning)
It hurt to rip it out, but I know I had to. So I ripped it out and elevated myself...and put a cold clothe on my face because I sweated so bad from shaking.
She was so scared and didn't know what to do either at the time I was shaking.
I've tried them multiple other times over the years, but I have never been able to have one in for awhile. (That time I finally had it in for like a few minutes) Other times, I put them in for a few seconds, and they feel weird (and dry inside) so I would take them out.
I tried going into the bathtub too, but I was like, no because it would expand it.
I just pulled it out really quick.
I had to elevate my legs on SIX pillows when I went to bed because I was so dizzy. I didn't sleep w one at my head either.
I think that I should just get used to it, but after that experience, I won't ever again!
it hurt me too...get the super light ones from playtex (sport kind) the thinnest you can get. I got mine at the normal size. And you need to be in the middle stage of your period when it is heavy.
If you had a bad experience, I wouldn't bother trying again...until you are for sure.
Or I don't know if you are a virgin? But someone told me tht I should wait until after I have sex
Oh, but they have the ones without the applicators...they are kind of weird, but you just stick your finger on the other side of it and just slide it in at your comfort. I think it's better than sliding hard plastic or cardboard up your vagina haha.
