You're going to have to go in and get it.

Has it been in there for a few days? You say the string broke the other day. That's really dangerous - you're at risk of Toxic Shock Syndrome.

If you can't get your finger in there to grasp it and pull it out, then get to the ER - it has to come out.

ANSWER #10 of 15


It will NOT be embarrassing and it will NOT hurt worse. I promise that emergency room staff have seen FAR WORSE than this. If she can not remove it herself, she must go to the emergency room, this can be very serious. Have you never read a tampon box and heard about Toxic Shock Syndrome - you know it can be fatal if not taken care of right?

It will not hurt worse at the emergency room because they will have the right tools and know what to do. I promise she is not the first girl to have a string break of her tampon, it happens.
