Sounds like you need to go to the doctor to have it removed.

This happened to me once- it was towards the end of my cycle where I sometimes wear tampons and I sometimes don't. I put one in not realizing I already had one in. I didn't notice for a few days. Thankfully I was able to reach up and grab the string.  It was a total accident- this doesn't make me nasty - it makes me human.

Holy crap! Just go to the er! My best friend got one stuck for a day and me being the good friend i am tried to help her get it out but nothing would work. We eventually went to the er and even after it just being in for 24 hours made her feel the effects of tss. I can't imagine going 5 days

Lol he should!

 Yep, next month he's actually going to be a guest speaker at a university to psychology students in a Human Sexuality class.  They want him to tell his nastiest and most offensive stories to try and desensitize these kids to some of the stories and situations they will have the "priviledge" to encounter from their future patients.


I told him he should just tell them to read in Mom Confessions because we definitely scrape the bottom of the barrel here, lol.

OMG. Puke! Uggggh. So nasty!


Quoting Anonymous:


 My husband is an ER doc and he's extracted 30 day tampons.  He said the nurse puked in the sink in the room and he put vicks under his nose and he still went and puked after leaving the room.  He said it was black and adheared to the vaginal wall. 



It's hard to believe that people are this gross.

Put one leg up on the toilet and squat. Put you fingers in your vagina and try to find the string. When located, pull it out. You should still also check in with your GYN, toxic shock can be dangerous. Obviously, if you cannot find it go to the ER. In the future, max for a tampon is 6-8hours, I believe.
