Lost Tampon: Symptoms of a lost tampon and how to remove - Page 2

It is sometimes easier for another person to remove a tampon than it is to do yourself.  This is not for the faint of heart though so if this option doesn’t sound reasonable, skip it and go directly to your doctor’s office.  Try not to be embarrassed.  Lost tampons happen more often than you think and your doctor should be able to remove it for you.  Don’t wait to be seen.  If your doctor can’t see you right away, go to a walk in clinic or urgent care clinic or if there are no other immediate options, go to the emergency room.  Yes, this is something that is urgent and needs to be dealt with quickly.  Waiting around can lead to a serious infection so if you can’t get it out yourself seek immediate help for removing a lost tampon.
