Pain when inserting and removing tampon

So I have been on my period for three days now and I Have been cramping like usual. But for the last two days, I have had some uncommon pain. When I take my tampon out, I have this bad pain that kind of "lingers" for awhile. It almost feels like taking out a dry tampon but worse! And the tampon is actually fully saturated. I haven't been leaving them in too long either. And when it comes time to put another in, I just about dread it because of the pain. The pain is basically where my symphisis pubis is but maybe a little above that. So would that be my uterus??? I've used tampons for about 5 years now so I know how to put them in. My mom keeps telling me that I am fine but I have never felt these before and it feels like something isn't right. Should I just go ahead and go to my gyno? Or do y'all know what could be causing this?

Hello, Haha123

Thank you for your post.

Your pelvic muscles may not be relaxed enough when you put the tampon in or pull it out. Using a lubricant may also help. If you are concerned, see your doctor.
