It is not uncommon to "forget" that a tampon was placed if the string is not visible. See your healthcare provider to make sure.

Having said that, maybe you shouldn't push your luck. Until the wart has cleared up, it may be best to not use that hand for sexual stimulation of your partner. ...Read more
