Question: possible lost tampon from drunken sex
|ilovewm - Wed Nov 12, 2008 6:09 am||
this incident was 9 months ago, but it's still bothering me even though I think it's ok. i'm too embarrassed to see a doctor. i had sex while too drunk and on my period, and i cannot remember if i removed my tampon. since then i've had no symptoms, no bad odours, no weird discharge, no pain/discomfort or anything. my periods have been normal too. i also could not find or feel it inside me myself but i still fear its way up inside. I just wanted to check that if i still should worry even though i've had no suspicious symptoms since. i'm 70% sure i would've taken it out at the time, but i can't recall at all! i just thought if it was still inside me, after 9 months i would have some sort of sign, bad smell at least! i really don't want to see a doctor!

I agree that having no symptoms probably means you don't have this problem. There is not much room for it to travel and you would be able to find it with the efforts you have made if it were still there. Don't worry.
