For some reason it hurts to put on a tampon, never hurted before, so I switched different tampons but it still hurts. My lower stomach has been hurting especially when I pee, and my period is mostly brown...Is something wrong?

Hi Anon,

Thank you for your post.

If you are experiencing pain when you try to insert a tampon, stop. The pain upon urination can mean that you have an infection or perhaps a laceration in your vagina that may be causing this pain.
Please schedule a visit with your OB/GYN and keep us posted!

Best Wishes!
