Customer Question

I am not sure if I left a tampon in and it got lost or I mindlessly pulled it out. I was a little agressive in trying to find it behind my cervix. This was Friday night. Today I am in uncomfortable pain and lightly bleeding an orange color. Do you think a tampon is lost and or I did damage to my cervix?

Hello,

the symptoms you describe can typically be caused by a lost tampon, which is sometimes impossible for the patient to find. So please visit the OB/GYN tomorrow for examination. Don´t worry, for him it´s a routine problem and so you are on the safe side.

Kind regards,

Dr. N. Scheufele

Should I go to hospital tonight to be safe? I am trying to get pregnant and don't want to risk damaging anything

Don´t worry, serious consequences are not to be feared in this case. So it will be sufficient to do the checkup tomorrow.
