Ok I'm 15 now and I want to use tampons now but every time I try the tampon won't fit . In a way I think it's my hymen but I don't knw. Then when I looked at myself to check this big circular thing is blocking my vagina so I defiantly know I can't put a tampon in. Can someone please tell me what is blocking me from wearing tampons and how to fix it?

A big circular thing where?

And how do you do with, say, inserting a lubricated finger into your vagina?

In this post, you said your boyfriend inserted two of his fingers: http://www.scarleteen.com/forum/ultimatebb.php?/ubb/get_topic/f/1/t/008530/p/1.html#000000

Is that right? If so, was that painful or uncomfortable for you?

So, if you didn't feel anything at all when he did that and that included not feeling any pain, we can know for certain there is nothing blocking your vaginal opening, since he could get inside your vagina with two fingers, which is much larger than one of yours or a tampon. We can also know there's not likely any issues with your hymen to be concerned about: a resilient hymen, or one that hadn't eroded a good deal would have made that kind of entry impossible or painful.

Am I recalling correctly that you have been having some vaginal burning lately that isn't going away? If so, have you made an appointment to see a healthcare provider about that?
