hey ! so today was the first day I ever wore a tampon and I need some advice 💡

So I read the leaflets that came with the box and it said that when I insert it , I shouldn’t be able to feel it and that if I do feel it I should put it in a bit deeper. I did do that but it started to hurt the deeper I put it. So I moved it back so it’s positioned just at the entrance, but I can still feel it. It doesn’t hurt but I can feel that there’s something there and that it’s pushing against the walls.

Is this because the vagina wall is adapting to its size or something else? And should I position it so I don’t feel it at all?

thanks ! 🦋🦋
