Is it possible to accidently pull out an IUD with a tampon? I almost think I did... Today will be 5 days into my cycle and my period has finally slowed down (as of last night). Yesterday when I took out a tampon and it was a little dryer than it had been before because of my heavier flow, I felt a little resistance or almost a 'pop'. I never checked in the toilet because I didn't think of then. Wish I had! I got to thinking about it and when I took a shower this morning I tried to check the strings of my IUD and I couldn't find them! I usually do have a hard time finding them, but usually after a couple tries I can feel something! I didn't feel anything! I don't know if it was up higher than usual cause sometimes the strings do get moved around.... but without having a tampon in since yesterday early evening it seems like they wouldn't have been pushed up at all. Ugh... I don't know what to do. My husband was looking into getting a vasectomy but he hasn't gotten it yet. I just had this IUD put in last July and these things are expensive (it was the 10 yr one)... it shouldn't have come out yet! Has anyone else heard of this happening or am I just freaking out for nothing?
