  • No. But you had to have taken it out, there isn't anywhere in there for it to really go...

  • Yes that has happened to me before. You just have too (as gross as it sounds) reach up there and try to grab it it can't go that far up.

  • I panic about that sometimes! Suggestion? Lube your finger w/ ky or vaseline or something and just sweep it in a circular motion inside your vagina .... between the string and bloated tampon, you'll feel something

  • ER doctors see 10+ of those worries a week....... go on, it'll take them about 90 seconds to give you a yes or no. If it's been in there since yesterday like you suspect, u might need an antibiotic.

    Otherwise round up a friend who wont giggle at you and spread 'em

  • I will say after doing this once you will remember from now on to take it out. lol
    If you don't feel anything that means it you did take it out. Because there is no where for it to go.

  • I thought I did once. I put the tampon in but once I reached for the string, it wasn't there. It was an empty applicator. I went to the gyno and was so embarassed. They said you would be amazed what people lose in there condoms and all kinds of things. She said it's like a pocket. Luckily, there was no tampon stuck in there, but that was kind of scary. LOL.

  • you can't really 'loose' it, there's no where for it to go -
    but if you may have had sex while it was still in there, then it may be pushed up. Using a mirror probably won't help much-
    you'll need to check for it with you fingers.
    Had it happen to me once, I just had to lie back and relax and my husband took care of it.
    But please make sure that there's nothing in you, or else you could risk Toxic shock-
