Okay then, let's try and help out step by step.
Sometimes, problems with tampon insertion can be due to a partial hymen still being in place. if you site down with your panties off and your legs spread and look at your vaginal opening with a hand mmirror, what do you see?
If it looks like the opening has little skin bits over it that sort of resemble what happens when you open your mouth and get "saliva strings" you may have a partially intact hymen. If so, often times, you can just sort of push the tampon around or through those bits, so give that a try.
If that isn't the case, time to try the whole thing slow and easy.
See if you can't stand over the toilet with one foot on the floor and the other on the seat. That gives you better leverage and an easier angle than fully sitting down. You're going to aim the tampon up into your vaginnal opening at a slight angle towards your back. Push it in slowly, and be sure not to bear down -- just relax, otherwise it isn't going to work.
If it goes in and it's in right, you shouldn't feel it in very much. Also, be sure you're using the most slender type, and it is often easier to use non-applicator tampons than the sort with the applicator.
Hopefully, that'll help. if not, we can try again, or you can ask a girlfriend for help as well.
And by the way, congratulations on your first period, in case no one has extended them!
