Customer Question

I may have lost my tampon in me, I reached my finger in as far as I could and couldn't find anything but I'm not sure if I went far enough. How can I know if there is one in there?

Hello and thanks for your question.
It's my first priority to help you.

As per your description,squat down and insert your thumb and forefinger into your vagina. Sweep the fingers back and forth and try to feel the withdrawal cord or tampon. Once you feel the cord/tampon, grasp it and pull it out.

Warm sitz bath can also be tried.

If you cannot find the tampon you will have to see a doctor ASAP. A tampon should not be left in your vagina for more than 8 hours.

Feel free for further queries. It's good to discuss rather than quit.
