The risk is less than 1 in 100, 000 women who are menstruating and using supe-rabsorbant tampons. The lack of blood as time of use of such a tampon would be predicted to lower risk even further. ...Read more

Symptom of preg. If your period stops a day after you had sex with a tampon on? (sex on 3rd day of mensturation, stopped on 5th day normally 7days).

Symptom of preg. If your period stops a day after you had sex with a tampon on? (sex on 3rd day of mensturation, stopped on 5th day normally 7days).

The sperm have to swim through the cervix, up the inside of the uterus and out of the fallopian tubes. Once a baby is made the mother's body does not know it is pregnant for about fourteen days after conception. So, your scenario is absolutely not pregnancy. ...Read more

I would not recommend leaving it there for longer than 12 hours. If you have symptoms--discharge, pain, odor etc... Consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more
