I am notoriously bad at knowing when I need to seek professional help. Even after I was prescribed the life-saving cream that eliminated the concerned looks from co-workers who would walk by my office and find me wrist deep in my sweater scratching my left boob because it always seemed to get worse mid-afternoon, I would wait weeks before calling to ask for a refill. This fear of calling my doctor is strangely coupled with my fear of dying. And so I wait until both fears eventually subside.
On this page you can read everything about a forgotten tampon. If you want to find out what your symptoms mean, or what a doctor would think of. Do the symptomcheck. When you forget to remove a tampon or another object from your vagina, this can lead to simple complaints which can lead to serious symptoms. When a tampon or another object isn't removed, it allows for bacteria to attach to it and multiply. In the beginning this causes very unpleasant smelling discharge, later it can cause much more serious symptoms.
After xoJane's Mandy Stadtmiller blogged on losing a tampon up there, The Cut featured a cringe-worthy but enlightening look back at the online accounts of women who have lost objects in their vaginas. I know. Good afternoon to you too!
If this happened to you, then recognize that you are not the only one. The major concern is that it probably found its way up into their abdomen. It is not possible because the opening that links the vagina to the uterus is so small especially when you are not pregnant that it cannot allow the passage of the tampon. This is one of the major reasons that lead to a stuck tampon, especially during the last days of your menses.
