Question: Is a lost tampon dangerous?

 kkgib - Sat Aug 01, 2009 7:25 pm

I am almost certain that I have lost a tampon somewhere up there. I have been to the er for feeling ill and have had lots of bloodwork done ( i am guessing the bloodwork would rule out infection), and they didnt say anything about infection, I am wondering how serious this is and how I can try to remove it without going back to the doctor.
