Not sure if I have vaginal swelling or a stuck tampon
JA: Any recent injuries? How long have you been dealing with the swelling?
Customer: A couple days. No injuries
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: I think there's a tampon bc there's less space when I stick my fingers in and it feels like there's something hard in there but I can't touch it Like it's behind a wall
