Doctor insights on:
Period W Tampon
2-5 days: Sperm can manage to live a long time, even in harsh conditions such as a menstrual cycle. Tampons probably have no effect. The good news is that a woman is unlikely to ovulate during her menstrual cycle, so even if the sperm live for a few days, it's unlikely there's anything for them to fertilize. If she's late for her period next month, you should check a pregnancy test. Next time use a condom! ...Read more

Semen on the abdomen would be unlikely to "fall" into the vagina.
Some periods are shorter or longer than others. If there is a big change in your periods - for example, if they are much longer or much heavier than usual- check with your doctor.

Can semen roll down from the stomach and into the vulva, and travel through the vaginal canal and enter the cervix during a period and w/ tampon in?
Gravity: No. Semen does not roll upwards. It also does not easily enter the vaginal canal in this scenario as you have now been told more than one dozen times. But, the bigger picture is that it does not in any way matter. The female in this scenario cannot get pregnant on the first day of a period. There is no egg there. ...Read more

Vaginal tampon use: Yes, you could in case you do not want to be surprised by your period, however you do need to change it at least 2-3 times a day, and you probably shouldn't use it for too long or make a habit out of it. A foreign body left in the vagina can change the vaginal flora and create complications - least problematic is an infection or odor and the worst one being toxic shock syndrome. ...Read more

Had a short 4 hour period on a regular tampon then only spotted a few drops and stopped what is wrong?
Hard to tell...: A doctor may check to look for a medical issue, if a woman has mild menstrual-related symptoms. Many women have some variation of mucus discharge, of their periods, or a missed period on occasion (due to changes in hormones). A pregnancy test can be done the week after a missed period, or 3 weeks after sex, if worried about pregnancy. If symptoms are persistent or repetitive, the ob-gyn can help. ...Read more

Get it checked: It is possible that the first tampon is still there. You can feel inside your vagina with your finger and try to locate and remove it. If you can't tell for sure if it is still there or not you should go to an ob/gyn or women's healthcare nurse practitioner and have an exam. A "lost tampon" in the vagina will typically cause foul discharge and odor but you shouldn't wait for symptoms. ...Read more

Yes: When you first start using tampons you may find it easier to insert a “slim” tampon with a smooth plastic applicator that has a rounded tip. Recommend that you avoid super tampons with cardboard applicators when you first start. There are may u tube videos that provide instruction on proper tampon insertion. Change tampons roughly every 4 to 6 hours. Moms can usually give advice about tampon use. ...Read more
