Can a tampon get pushed so high into your posterior fornix that your cervix is completely open and uncovered and susceptible to sperm?

Yes: Tampon can "get lost"in the posterior fornix. Problem is not that cervix is "exposed"to sperm but it will begin to smell bad and also become a small risk of infection, including a very rare(but life-threatening) condition called toxic shock syndrome. It is best to go to your gyn doctor and have it removed. If you are worried about being pregnant get a pregnancy test. Best wishes. ...Read more

What r different methods to remove broken soft contacts lodged in both eyes deep in conjunctival upper fornix and medial n lateral side of eyeball.

In addition, your eye doctor will evaluate your floaters (which are inside your eye) to rule out any internal eye problems. ...Read more
