Patient

Q: So I inserted a tampon today and I noticed a very, very sharp pain in my vagina. I literally had to bend over and stop myself from screaming by covering my mouth with my other free hand. I've always had the problem of my tampon not feeling normal. I mean, I could insert it, and it could contain my bodily fluids properly, but I've always felt like I've been inserting it wrong. people always say you're not suppose to feel your tampon inside of you, but I've always felt it, and sometimes it hurts so bad I have to take it out. well, just a couple days ago I was inserting a tampon and I hit an odd angle and sure enough, my tampon slipped straight in and it was a comfortable feeling, because finally I didn't have to feel the pain of my tampon jabbing into me. Well, I got home to remove the tampon, and it would not come out as easily as it normally would! I tugged and tugged and it hurt so bad!! I finally got it out by tugging on the string hard and it was a very painful process. The next day I try the angle again, and I get home and have the same problem, only this time it takes a complete hour to come out! I vow to never use tanpons again for the fear of the pain. But yet again today I find myself in need of the almighty tampon. When I inserted it today, it was different, I felt a painful ripping and it hurt SOOOOO bad! I soon shrugged it off and went through the whole day with it. Now here I am with the same problem as before, it's stuck and very painful to touch! But I looked in the mirror and my tampon is stuck under a huge flap of skin! The skin looks ripped open in the middle with a bit of blood on it and my tampon is straight through the skin! Every time I pull, the skin comes up with it! It's so painful! I'm pretty sure it's my hymen. I'm NOT sexually active and I've used tampons before but this is really scaring me!
