Place your thumb and your middle finger on the ribbed part of the applicator.
The index finger is placed on the base of the applicator. With the other hand, gently open the vaginal opening. Insert the applicator 1-2 centimeters (0.5 - 1 inch) into the vagina while holding the ribbed part firmly. Push the applicator base with your index finger until it stops (works as a syringe). The tampon is now in place and you can gently remove the applicator.
