I can’t put in tampons???

Hope • Hope the Pope 🤔

Yes, I am a virgin, but I know plenty of friends that use tampons and are a virgin. They say it’s easy as heck, but it hurts me SO bad. I know I’m finding the right hole, but whenever I put a tampon in, it starts hurting and when I try to walk around I have to waddle and it’s uncomfortable, and then it hurts as well when I try to take it out. Any tips to help me or am I possibly putting it in wrong?
