Yeah, a lot of girls do get some anxiety about it and tension is not exactly helpful for that sort of thing.
A Guide to Using Your First Tampon There is a website about how to properly insert one and some info about it if you're interested. It does have some drawings/diagrams.

If you don't like pads and have anxiety about tampons you could try a Diva Cup. I have never tried one but there's some women on her who swear by them. FAQs - DivaCup

It seems like they don't go in as far but I'm not positive.

You get used to tampons over time. Lots of young girls have difficulty with it. Even if your hymen is broken it can still be very difficult because you are not "stretched" inside enough. Do not worry, it will come with time.

I didn't think it required impact to break the hymen, just riding can stretch it enough.

Don't quote me on that though, I'm not sure but that is what I thought.

It doesn't have to be "impact", they can be broken doing something as simple as riding your bike.

Also, not everyone bleeds when it breaks either. ;)

From reading this, I think mine has to have been broken for quite a while. I've never felt pain down there. But i've been riding since I was 4, rode a pony that always bucked. And did gymnastics for a couple of years when I was little.

The first time I yried putting a tampon in- i ended up bawling from pain. It kept falling out too :/

Horses aren't just a pleasure, they are an escape from all evils of mankind.

Mine was broken before I lost my virginity. Likely from riding.

Also, to those girls having tampon trouble, don't be afraid to ask your mom to help. My best friend actually had her mom put hers in the first time. It may sound gross and awkward, but she's never had trouble with them.

I remember my first tampon experience. I didn't know you had to put the applicator inside you and then push the plunger. I was just touching the tampon to my body and then pushing. Talk about excruciating. It wasn't until I read the instructions that I discovered you had to insert the applicator. I wasn't a very bright twelve-year-old.

I'm really nervous about putting tampons in as well...

Feeling down? Saddle up!

Just a tip. For your first time, make sure you get plastic tampons. The cardboard kind are harder to get in, and can hurt if you're too dry. The plastic ones glide in much more easily.

You were most likely putting it in wrong then.

You can always have a friend/mom stand outside a bathroom stall while you try it or ask your obgyn. It should not cause pain and you shouldn't be able to obviously feel it while it is in there.
