I've lost my tampon, is this an emergency or can I wait until Monday to get it removed?

Monday fine

Fever
Yes it's fine to wait until tomorrow. This isn't an emergency as long as there is no fever and you feel well otherwise. If the tampon has been there less than 1 week, the chance of complications is EXTREMELY LOW.

Can a tampon to get into the uterus after having intercourse many times? Is it possible for a doc to miss (not see) a lost tampon during a PAP smear?

Tampons and Doctors

Pap_smear
No. A tampon could not get into the uterus. But, tampons can get pushed up under the back of the cervix and get forgotten. A gynecologist who knows you are worried about his can take extra efforts to make sure your vagina is empty on their vaginal exam.

Can you get a yeast infection from using a tampon?

Possibly

Candida_vulvovaginitis
The longer the tampon is in place, or if the tampon dries you out too much it can irritate the tissues and make you more prone to getting a yeast infection, but does not actually cause it.

If I wear a tampon during discharge, can I get TSS?

Unlikely

Tampons have been redesigned. Risk of TTS is VERY low and virtually unheard of if the tampon is changed every 4-6 hours.
