How long can sperm survive during a menstrual period w/ tampons in?

How long can sperm survive during a  menstrual period w/ tampons in?

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

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?

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

Had a short 4 hour period on a regular tampon then only spotted a few drops and stopped what is wrong?

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

This morning during my third period and went into the locker room and went to go to the br really quick and i m not sure if my tampon fell out but i couldn t find the string so i put another one in but now i m not sure if it did fall out or the other one

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
