it helped me to angle it a bit toward my uterus when insterting, I had some trouble just pushing it straight up. Just tell her to go slow and push slowly finding the best angle. It's got to be very hard for her to deal with I remember getting my period near her age and how mortified I was at that.
Hard to remember, but I keep telling myself, everyone poops!
Hope she is well soon! Rowasa's helped me greatly my first flare. Also, the first few times will be hard to do, and she may not get a chance to absorb much at all, don't get discouraged though, even us adults have a hard time at first.
