Tampons should fit, no matter what the size; after all, where they go is designed to push out a baby which is definitely a lot bigger than a tampon. You're probably just not putting them in properly. Over here, you can get mini tampons with cardboard applicators which first time users use; go to your chemist and ask if they've got anything like that.
There should also be instructions included as far as application goes. Lock yourself in your bathroom and give yourself plenty of time, and you should get the hang of it. I only use tampons if I've got my period and want to go swimming; I just don't really like them cuz pads are more convienient as far as I'm concerned.
