Make sure the tampon is where it supposed to go and to make sure nothing can get on the tampon to irritate the vagina or cause infection.

That is actually the applicator! You insert the applicator up until the lined part, and then push the bottom part up. The tampon comes out the top through the "spiky" part. It is like that instead of a hole so the tampon doesn't fall out of the applicator before it is inside your body. Then the tampon remains inside of you until you pull the string out. A tampon will never get lost inside of you, because the entrance from the vagina to the rest of the body is too small. When inserted See More▼

I use pads not tampons but I'm pretty sure that is the plastic thing that helps you put it on then you throw that part out

I've never seen a sharp tampon. Maybe you should by a different brand or something. And no, tampons shouldn't hurt if you're putting them in right. They might be uncomfurbol takin going out, but other than that, you shouldn't be able to feel them.
