So embarassed my boyfriend saw a tampon in my purse. What should I say?

Don't worry about it: If he's mature and understands how women's bodies work, that shouldn't bother him. That's a natural thing that every woman on earth goes through in their reproductive years. If he's being weird about it, talk to him. Explain it. Maybe he doesn't understand. ...Read more

No: During period is the messiest but safest tim to avoid pregnancy. Tampon will not help or hurt pregnancy risk. Risk of infection could be a little higher, but otherwise should be no issues. ...Read more

Im16 years old and me and my boyfriend have already had sex 3 times and I didn't bleed for any of them is my cherry is popped if I didn't use tampons?

Im16 years old and me and my boyfriend have already had sex 3 times and I didn't bleed for any of them is my cherry is popped if I didn't use tampons?

Yes, but...: The "cherry is popped", but that is an ongoing myth. In the modern world, one should not be thinking of cherries (except the bing, ranier, and other varieties found at the farmers' market), and one should not be thinking of "popping cherries". So, a person is a virgin until he/she has sex for the first time. It is normal for a woman to bleed a little and it is normal for her not to bleed at all. ...Read more

I think I have a tampon "lost" somewhere in my uterus. How bad can that be if not removed? I was intoxicated and my boyfriend and I had intercourse.

I think I have a tampon "lost" somewhere in my uterus. How bad can that be if not removed? I was intoxicated and my boyfriend and I had intercourse.

Retained tampon: A tampon cannot get into the uterus. Haven't you seen how big they are? But a tampon can be hiding under the cervix. You should be able to pull it out if you go find your cervix and feel underneath it. ...Read more

Get a pregnancy test: You should have a pregnancy test done. A home urine test may be negative, if done too early. Recheck in 1-2 weeks, if still no regular period, or get a blood pregnancy test with a doctor. ...Read more

I got a tampon inside my vagina and my boyfriend cannot see or feel it. I am so scared to go to the hospital! What do I do?

If I was on the second day of my period and my boyfriend ejaculated on my hand and I later got up to put a tampon in, should I take plan b?

If I was on the second day of my period and my boyfriend ejaculated on my hand and I later got up to put a tampon in, should I take plan b?

Plan B: Well sperm start dying fairly quickly in dry air and only can survive in a moist environment. You're probably fine since tampons are usually inside a plastic or cardboard tube. Also, if you washed your hands after your partner ejaculated the sperm should have been washed off. Certainly you could take plan B, but its not likely needed here. ...Read more

My daughter can only get a tampon in about an inch. Then she says it's like it stops and it hurts. Could there be an issue stopping it from going in?

My daughter can only get a tampon in about an inch. Then she says it's like it stops and it hurts. Could there be an issue stopping it from going in?

There could..: ...but would need more information to help. For example, how old is she? Has she ever been able to insert a tampon in the past? Any chance there's already one in there? Are there any other symptoms, like discharge, smell, pain at baseline, etc.? Best to make an appointment with her pediatrician and get it checked out. ...Read more

Menstrual cups or tampons? Which r better for young teen virgins? Don't say it's about personal preference

Menstrual cups or tampons? Which r better for young teen virgins? Don't say it's about personal preference

Sorry to disappoint.: Despite your assertation "Don't say it's about personal preference", it is... There is not medical research as to what is "best" - the choice of product to use during menstruation is a personal one that should be made based on comfort and preference. It is your body, make the choice that you are most comfortable with. ...Read more

Is it true that I can't use tampons because I'm a virgin? My mom says not to use them. And can they get lost? Can you keep a tampon in overnight?

Is it true that I can't use tampons because I'm a virgin? My mom says not to use them. And can they get lost? Can you keep a tampon in overnight?

Maybe: For many virgins, the entrance to the vagina is a small hole, that might fit a new tampon. When it fills with menstrual blood, it gets bigger & you would enlarge the hole (destroy the hymen) when you remove it. Some young women have wider hole & a tampon could be inserted & removed without hurting anything. Your mom assumes it could hurt & tear your hymen making your virgin status questionable ...Read more

On my period (cd3+) my pants will be soaked but its clear, not blood. My tampon is often not even full with blood. Lots of women online say the same?

On my period (cd3+) my pants will be soaked but its clear, not blood. My tampon is often not even full with blood. Lots of women online say the same?

BV?: You may have bacterial vaginosis (BV), this usually presents with clear, watery discharge with fishy odor. BV is often caused by period in a woman already colonized with the bacteria responsible for this, as the bleeding will change the acidity of the vagina allowing the bacteria to overgrow. See your family doctor or ob/gyn for evaluation and treatment. ...Read more

Can I use a tampon with a cyst that is located on my vaginal wall? My doctor says its pretty small and sex isn't painful. Help!

I wanna have sex with my boyfriend tomorrow and my period started yesterday how can I stop it without using menstrual cups or tampons?

Periods: I would strongly suggest that you go ahead and have sex with the periods, or you wait till right after the period (use birth control) its not a good idea to mess around with the body hormones just for sex. ...Read more

I've never used tampons, I always go to gyn they say its a infection I drink pills and this smelly discharge like dead rat happens again?

I've never used tampons, I always go to gyn they say its a infection I drink pills and this smelly discharge like dead rat happens again?

BV: Bacterial vaginosis can be very hard to eradicate since the main problem is the absence of peroxidase positive lactobacillus which keeps the vaginal pH somewhat acidic and prevents the growth of anaerobes which cause the odor. I find vaginal meds work best for my patients and us repHresh vaginally twice weekly for several months after treatment. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Cyst/laparoscopy 1wk ago. Dx stage 2 endo & IC. Dr. said I can swim 1wk post-op. Discharge papers say no tampons until he clears me. Saw him yesterday, but forgot to ask. I'm bleeding, but want to get back to swimming. Can I use tampons?

Just wait until...: Using tampon is probably okay but not well acceptable in public pool while still "bleeding". Besides, swimming is not an absolute urgent need for life so it is logical to refrain from it for now until bleeding clears up. I do know this advice may not be what you like, but surely what you need. Besides, viewing articles in http://formefirst. Com/onLifeBasics. Html would help you deal with future.... ...Read more
