Unable to Remember If a Tampon Was Inserted? Steps to Take If You Suspect It’s Stuck Inside



Ensuring that you change your tampon regularly is essential to maintaining good vaginal health and reducing your risk of infection. However, if you suddenly can’t remember if you’ve put a tampon in or can’t see or access the string, it’s natural to start worrying. Thankfully, in most cases, a tampon will still be in your vaginal canal and your body will give you warning signs if it has been left in for too long.

If you can’t recall whether you put a tampon in, the first step is not to panic. Take a deep breath, trim your nails, wash your hands, and perform a gentle finger sweep to try and locate the tampon. If you feel something spongy or mobile, or that you can hook your finger around, you can try to remove it yourself. However, if you can’t remove it or feel uncomfortable, it’s best to seek help from your ob-gyn to have the tampon safely removed.

While a tampon can be stuck or difficult to reach, it cannot actually get lost inside you. The opening of your cervix is too small to allow a tampon to pass through it. If you ever experience tampon amnesia, rest assured that your healthcare provider can easily and quickly remove the tampon if needed.

In conclusion, it’s important to be mindful of changing your tampon regularly to maintain good vaginal health. If you ever find yourself unsure if you’ve inserted a tampon or can’t locate it, take a deep breath and perform a gentle finger sweep to try and locate it. If you encounter any difficulty or discomfort, seek help from your healthcare provider who can assist in removing the tampon safely. Remember, a tampon cannot get lost inside you, so there is no need to panic.
