A 26-year-old female asked:

I wore my pad too long to the point where it began to shred. i found a bunch of sodium polyacrylate granules from the pad around my labia and i think they may have gotten into my vagina. what should i do? is this harmful/cause an infection?

Suggest that you have an exam with your PCP.. This should not cause an infection.
