Me too. I'm trying to get it out and its been in for about 4 hours. I tried pulling the string but it hurts! Its normal if it hurts though. Mine has been in longer than yours. Yours is probably dry. I just got it out! Pull at the string with toilet paper in your hand, it should feel big uncomfortable but keep pulling (slowly) and it should fall out and then catch it with toilet paper roll it up and throw it away. Another tip is to pee to soften it and then pull slowly again. I recommend doing so above a toilet. This is answered from experience scine I JUST GOT IT OUT FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER IN MY LIFE WHILE WRITING THIS. Feel special. I made an account to answer your question ;) bye

It's still dry .. you need to leave it in a lot longer than 2 hours.

you have to wait until its full..wait til it leaks a little (( always wear panty liners, if you wear thongs, there are panty *thong* liners )) of else you can start to feel with the tampon is gettting heavy! hope i help! p.s. if its getting close to time to take it out, id say poor some water on it while your pulling it out it kinda helps to fill the rest of it up..

Its going to hurt the first time putting it in and out!! So dont worry it is normal!! Why it hurts to take it out is because after you have out it in their your body kinda sucks it in! Not all the way but some!! And so while trying to get it out it will be sucking!! Dont worry if you wear tampons alot it will stop hurting after while!! I hope it helps!!

ok well if you have only had it in there for 2 hours dont take it out yet that just means that it hasnt obbsorbed anything yet...but if it is uncomfortable and you want it out you can just deal with the little pain or you can go in the shower and get the end wet and sometimes with the steam it will feel a little wetter and you can take it right out.

xlostangelx answered Friday August 20 2004, 11:58 pm:
It will hurt at first cuz its something youre not used to. The tissue is ripping which is normal all the way. It might of hurt bc yes, the tampon may still be dry, or maybe the tissue inside of your vagina is ripping and tearing from the new object inside of you, which is perfectly normal. no worrys, youre fine girl!!

hope i helped:) need anything else, feel free to ask.

hey.....yes it is because if you use a tampon for the first time you might still be dry inside. if it is to dry to get out, try puttting water on the part of the tampon right above the string.hope thats what i do and if it doesnt work then just pull hard. it might hurt but at least it will be out.hope i helped

much luv abbey

dont listen to those people who say to take it out after 2 could leave it in for a full 8 hours and you're NOT GOING TO GET TSS.

rainbowcherrie answered Friday August 20 2004, 4:05 pm:
If it doesn't come out easily then it isn't ready to come out. 2 hours isn't really long enough to leave it in for, you should probably leave it for another 2 hours.

Karen answered Friday August 20 2004, 12:20 pm:
You have to leave the tampon in for 5-7 hours and then take it out. You probably didn't let it absorb that much and yea, it is probably dry. If you want to take it out without it hurting, just go pee and it should come out. Hope I helped :)

Okay, here are some tips. The first time I did it, it hurt when I tried to pull it out. Here's what I have since learned. Get a tampon that fits your flow. Regular is the best for when you are starting. And WAIT 4 - 8 hours so that it can absorb something. It hurts when you do it too early.

Honey, hurry up and get that tampon out! For further reference, the tampon might be dry, but you have to be quick about pulling it out. I don't mean to scare you, but have you heard of TSS? Thats nothing to play around with. It could also be that the tampon is really full, and your vagina is small, so its exapnded the walls of your vagina, thats what happened to me the first time I used a tampon. Maybe tampons just aren't for you.
Mad Love,

Okay well your tampon might not of soaked up enough blood yet so you will have to wait alittle longer for it to fully soak up and then it should be easy to pull out.
