(I'm also 34 weeks pregnant.)
Just posting for anyone else who finds this - Same thing happened to me!
I put one in last night for the first time and foolishly thought I didn't need a string - well it slipped passed the point where I could easily remove it this morning. My hubby tried too for an hour and I just got frustrated and sent him off to work.
I kept reading online and realized I should have made him try to hook his finger instead of trying to grab it with two fingers. Then I read where someone mentioned trying orgasms and/or bowel movements. Tried the orgasm but that's not something that's easy for me to do. Luckily, I suddenly had the urge to poo (been a little backed up since I'm pregnant) and sitting on the toilet and doing my business made it pop right out!
So, take a poo. Or maybe even just try to push it out while you sit on the toilet. I think just sitting on the toilet pushed the clove into the canal and out of that space between the cervix and the vaginal walls. Hope this helps anyone who finds it!
this just happened to me...i'm glad i'm not the only one & that there is hope of retrieval.... i am gbs positive & 38 weeks pregnant & keep worrying that my cervix is opening & the garlic is going on up. i keep imagining the baby coming out with a clove of garlic stuck to her head....
so far nothing has worked for me--but the day is still young.
this is not the first time i have lost things in my vagina
Okay. I stumbled upon this thread and am glad I did. My natural path told me to use the 'garlic clove up the hoohaa" for a stubborn bladder infection. I felt weird about putting something up there that I would normally make a pot of red gravy with, but... Anyway, it was a rather large clove and it kept sliding out. I was afraid of pushing it too far up and it finding its way to my uterus. Glad to hear that is not possible...
However, when I got up this morning, I quickly went to pee and peed forever...remember I have a bladder infection. I forgot completely about the garlic. After that, I tried to search for it, but to no avail. I am hoping that it just popped right out with the forst morning pee. I would hate to think that I will have to live with my Italian seasoning in my vajayjay!
I have to say, at one point, I felt very dry from all the searching and thought about another natural remedy shared by my doctor after the delivery of my oldest child. She recommended olive oil. That thought gave me the giggles. I guess I would just need some some salt, pepper and lettuce for a good salad. Okay, enough with the jokes. Do you think it is safe to say it came out?
PS: I am happy to report that after only one night, the strong smelling urine has disappeared!
OK... same problem. I put one in last night and can't find it and don't know that it came out. I tried again a couple of times tonight and think that maybe it did come out without my knowing it. My finger did not smell like garlic. Would it be safe to say that the searching finger would smell like garlic if it was still in there? I know that this sounds totally stupid, but if anyone has an answer or any advice, it would be greatly appreciated. I REALLY don't want to ask DH a doc or anyone else if I can avoid it. Thank you.
