JA: OK. The Gynecologist will need to help you with this. Anything else I can tell the Gynecologist before I connect you two?
Customer: no thank you

Hello, I'm Dr Manos, M.D., board certified ObGyn. You can use a vinegar based douche to replenish the mildly acidic content of vaginal secretions. You mentioned a retained tampon and they fold into the apex of the vagina behind the cervix. They have a foul odor and you may not be able to feel it. If nothing checks out then a visit to the gynecologist's would help.
