Q: I feel like a total idiot. I got drunk lastnight and I normally am not a forgetful person but, I noticed later on in the evening that I didn't have a tampon string hanging when I went to use the restroom. I Was at several places that evening and I for the life of me, I cannot figure out if I took out the tampon at some point when I used the bathroom earlier in the evening. I am freaking out. This has never happened before. I looked and stuck my finger inside my vagina to feel if anything was there. I could not feel anything. I know I put a tampon in before I left my house and I am certain of that. If there was a tampon lodged in there, would I be able to feel it? Is it possible that it is in there so far that I wouldn't be able to feel for it? PLEASE HELP, I am in a panic.
A: Thanks for the advice. Everything is clear. I traced my steps of that night and figured out that I took the tampon out. I figure that if there was one in there lodged that I would have been able to feel it anyhow. You can just never be too sure.
A: Well, my mother had a tampon become stuck. She started to think that maybe she had taken it out...but a week later she noticed something wasn't right. It was indeed lodged up in there. Breeding ground for nasty stuff. Hope you are sure.
Q: I lost a tampon in my vagina on Tuesday. Today I went to a doctor to have it removed, only she couldn't find it. I'm scared and unsure what I should do.... I do not have health insurance and I don't make much money at all. Should I go back to the same place and ask someone else to check?
A: I dont think you can lose a tampon in your va-jay-jay sweety... your vag is only so big and a tampon cant go into your cervix because its too big to get all the way in there. Are u sure you didnt take it out and forgot u did?
Q: Hi, i forgot I left a tampon inside me for 4 days. It came out by itself today. I am now having stomach cramps and backache (no blood loss). Should I see a doctor?
A: So I left a tampon in on accident for over a month. I removed it but I still have a back ache my sides are sore expescially on my right side. I also found a lump in my vagina. anyone know what's going on with me? how's this is my condition?
A: It is called Toxic Shock Syndrome. If you read the info leaflet in the tampon box it should tell you what the symptoms are.
Q: Hey! I had a copper IUD put in Dec, 2010. I had the normal bleeding and spotting for the first 4 months. Then it stopped and I started to get "regular" periods. In May I had one and I was soaking through a tampon every 30-60min. This lasted for 24 hours and then went to a tampon about every 2-3 hours, for the next 2 days. In June, I had the same heavy bleeding, but it lasted about 36 hours and then went to the same as befor. I mentioned it to my doctor at my daughters 9mon. check up and she said that was NOT normal and decided to try me on 200mg or progesterone for 2 weeks to try and reset the uterine lining and see if that would help? Do you think I am just going to have to have the IUD out? I have tried so many different BC and I am just so senstive to all of them. Currently on the meds I think I am feeling pregnant...I know this is just as side effect. Just curious if anyone else has had anything similar? Thanks!
Q: So I just recently had Mirena removed. I started my period. I am bleeding through one super plus tampon an hour for about 4 hours then it slows. When removing my tampon I have a slug like discharge thing. It the color of blood and stretchy. Is this normal? I have normal cramps but nothing serious.
Q: I woke up not feeling well and went to the the bathroom. While I was wiping I noticed something was coming out of me. It turned out to be the tip of a tampon (about an inch long). I haven't warn one for two or three days. Am I going to be okay? Tampons need to be removed after 8 hours and this piece has definitely been in there longer than that. I didn't even know that it was possible for them to break.
A: You need to see your gyn to be sure all of the tampon is removed.

Q: I am freaking out right now! My last few periods have been dark and foul smelling---I recently had a baby and was on the minipill/breastfeeding...had just stopped the minipill and attributed the change in menstration to that. But again I had a horrible foul smelling period this month. So I started looking up things online--one of the things mentioned was that a so-called "lost" tampon can cause this problem. I was completely sure I hadn't forgotten a tampon! Who does such a thing?! But I thought I had better check--to my HORROR, it was not a tampon, but my diaphragm from MONTHS ago that was forgotten. I don't know how this happened but sure enough, there it was. Needless to say I removed it. It's Saturday so I can't call my Dr. I have no symptoms of TSS or anything like that but I'm thinking I should be checked out or something. I can't find anything online about someone leaving a diaphragm in--only tampons. HELP!
Q: I put a tampon in this morning and i forgot about it until about 2, which is longer then i should have had it in for. When i went to take it out it wasnt there. This happend a month or so back and when it wasnt there i thought i just forgot to put one in. So i just put another one in to find out a couple days later that it was still inside me. I took it out and everything seemed fine. I am very worried now that this has happened again. It is not 5 and i still can't see it. I also run everysday and don't know if this will effect me. please help
A: Well if it had fallen out, I'm sure you would have known about it. And if you read the FAQ on any Tampon booklet that comes with the box, it tells you that it can't really get lost inside your Vagina because of the cervix. What I would do is go into the bathroom or where you are most comfortable, and squat down. This is going to lower the cervix further down a bit. Try to push out the tampon. You're going to have to put your fingers inside your vagina to get it out, but it shouldn't be too bad. Good luck! :)
A: thanks for the comments i am going to the doctors on monday. Nothing has changed, i tryed putting my fingers in my vagina but i couldnt feel anything. I felt something underneath where my finger was, i dont know if that is normal or if that is the tampon. I also haven't been feeling well, my stomach hurt really bad yesterday and it feels different down there. When i get my period i don't usualy get cramps or anything like this.
Q: I hate asking about this online, but noone has ever heard of it.......I am 35 and have used tampons for 21 years. For as long as I can remember I get real crampy and I basically know when to put in a tampon, if I don't, the bleeding will not start. I only go for 2 or 3 days lightly. I am concerned this month because I am heavy with blood clots. I am going to the doctor, but he hasn't heard of not starting unless inserting a tampon either. Does anyone else have this problem? Thank you.
A: Inserting a tampon does not trigger your period to come. I don't really understand your question, are you asking why your period is so heavy this time?
A: clots are part of you coming out. it's no big deal
