tampon pushing itself out

Hi, all. Does anyone else have this problem with your tampon pushing itself out? I know this is a minor annoyance in the larger scheme of things, but every single tampon that I put it does this now and I am wondering if something inside me has changed and is pushing it out. After 25 years of periods, I know that this can happen occasionally when you don't insert the tampon far enough in. After awhile, you get this unmistakable feeling when the tampon has slipped down, so you go put in another one and all is well. But almost every single one I insert (and I do try to insert them high each time) I find it slips down. What gives?

Re: tampon pushing itself out

I found I had this problem a few times with the new OB tampons. They changed them and I don't like the new ones at all. I think they did this so they don't fall apart. I was power walking once and I could feel the new one coming out. Very uncomfortable! When I went back to using the original OB - no problems. What tampons are you using?

Do you have children? I started having the same problem after I had my first child.

Re: tampon pushing itself out

I started having this problem after three kids - I have a minor prolapse situation. Nothing to worry about or fix, but enough to make placement of tampons an issue.
