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?

See a Doctor: Or a nurse practitioner. Many times the tampon has been displaced and is never found. You need to get a vaginal exam just in case. ...Read more

Boyfriend came inside of me on June 4th. I was on bc pills, took plan b in case. Today (1 week later) had a "period" that filled only 1super tampon?

Boyfriend came inside of me on June 4th. I was on bc pills, took plan b in case. Today (1 week later) had a "period" that  filled only 1super tampon?

Pregnant or not??: If you have been taking BCPs as directed without fail they are very effective (over 99%). Plan B is just double strength BCP. So unnecessary if you are taking pills. ...Read more

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
