  • No, you cannot. You can damage your cervix by yanking that thing out by yourself. Make an appointment, get it taken out, make sure is all well down there, and start taking prenatal vitamins asap.

  • I looked into this myself and you do not want to do it. It's almost impossible for you to be able to pull it out yourself at the right angle. You don't want to damage your uterus or cervix and never be able to have more babies, go to a doc. Planned Parenthood will take it out and they work on a sliding scale basis.
