Wow... how do you forget a tampon for 5 days!?! Watch out for toxic shock. I would go to the er.. that's just crazy.

Go take a warm bath, and while you're laying in it, use your fingers to fish for the string.  Pull!

Never, ever leave a tampon in that long!  10 hours is pushing it for one tampon.  TSS is a deadly thing!

 Stick your fingers (or have someone else do it) in there and get it out. But be careful because you may end up shoving it up there more. Best bet is to go to the doctor and have a professional remove it.
