Question: Condom stuck inside me and I didn't know


 Z4042 - Mon Dec 10, 2007 3:44 am

I'm a 29 yo female. I currently have my period. Just went to the bathroom, and to my suprise, a condom came out! The last time I had sex was about 3 weeks ago. (the guy didn't tell me the condom came off)

I have my period.. but I'm still worried about pregnancy, and any other risks of having a condom in there for so long.

Should I be worried?

User avatar I don't think you need to worry about pregnancy since you are having your period. As for other concerns, the main one would be infection which sometimes comes from a foreign object left in the vagina. But, since you have apparently not had symptoms of that (foul odor, discharge, fever, chills, etc.) I would say you are fine.

Best wishes.

Thank you so much for your help.

Haven't had any other symptoms.
