Hello,

Welcome and thank you for the question.

Normally, the eampon can be inserted straight up in the vagina. This is because in most women, the uterus is anterverted ( curves forward) and the cervix (mouth of the uterus) is situated in the posterior and upper part of the vagina.

In some women, however, the uterus may be retroverted (curved backwards) and this pushes the cervix forwards and somewhat lower down. In this case, the tampon may not find space to be inserted straight up and may slip to a sideways position.

A retroverted uterus is normal and you have no cause for worry.

But, sometimes a small cyst or other growths inside the vagina may also take up space, causing the tampon to slip sideways.

Please consult an Obgyn for a checkup.

I hope this helps.
