Train the Body to Accept Tampons
Some girls can't wear tampons because their bodies overreact to penetration. Their muscles tighten to brace and protect from harm. If you're one of those girls, we want you to know that there's nothing wrong with you. It happens!
Thankfully these over-responsive (dramatic!) muscles can be trained by exposing them to something small and safe. Consistent exposure shows the body there's no need to tense up — the key is learning more about your body and getting comfortable with yourself and insertions.
