On Sunday I drank to much and forgot I had a tampon in(and may have had sex with it in(hubby was buzzed as well)) and afterwards put in another tampon. I continued to go about my period as normal, inserting and removing tampons till late Monday when I figured that I was done bleeding and took the 2nd one out (thinking it was the only one).
Fast forward to today, I started having some runny brown smelly discharge. After googling I decided I should check and sure enough, there was a tampon in there (and it smelled terrible). I have been really tired for the past 3 days, but figured it was from not sleeping much this weekend and pretending I was 21 again.
So what do I do now? Should I be worried? I put some coconut oil inside since I know it's anti-fungal/anti-bacterial, and took some zinc and vitamin c, but should I do something else? I can't believe I did this, I feel like such a fool.
I would really appreciate any advice. Thanks

Also, some yogurt too. Make sure you do plain yogurt. I told my bff the yogurt tip and neglected to mention plain yogurt. She used strawberry yogurt for over a week

However, if you continue to be worried I second the garlic clove suggestion. I've only done it once myself, but I've heard from a ton of other women who swear by it. Do be prepared to smell like a loaf of garlic bread if you do, though.
On another note, this thread made me remember the greatest description of removing a tampon I've ever heard. It's near the bottom of this post. Near spot on, if you ask me.
Thanks again for all the help, it made me feel better. I can't imagine having one in for 28 days, wow.
Oh my god, I did the same thing today. The order was so embarassing and it started on the weekend so I would have had to wait till monday to see the doctor. Thankfully I got some gel and accidently screwed up the tub so had to apply manually. I felt something up there and I was like, OMG I left my tampon up there. The first thought that came to me is that I had to go to the hospital right away, but after reading how much longer people have accidently left a tampon up there, I feel a lot better about this. Thank you so much for sharing your experiences for us...not so experienced :)
