Hi! YES. I know some people who haven’t experienced this will probably be thinking what the heck….but I know how you feel! I forgot it was in there because the string actually broke off at some point (horrible $ tree tampons). I too noticed a strange awful smell and I made an appointment with the doctor and when she told me, I almost DIED. I couldn’t believe that I had a tampon inside for like 4 days. I know this is Too Much Information but I just wanted to make sure you knew that you are not alone. Anyways, make SURE to go to the doctor! I ended up having a yeast infection because of it and she gave me some antibiotics. MAKE SURE YOU GO. Just to be sure. Don’t feel bad though, sometimes these things happen. Good luck!

I’m just in shock and awe. lol.  I don’t “do” tampons, so this has never happend to me, and i also can’t imagine not knowing it was in.  I’m very amused by this notion (not in a mean way, i assure you)  Buy, yeah, i would def go to the Dr. and make sure everything is on the up and up.

I can’t imagine myself forgetting for more than a day or two because I find the “taking a crap” muscles seem to always push tampons out…

I have forgotten them for a day or so though and it’s always gross but I’ve never had issues afterwards.

Good luck to you.

I’ve only forgotten for a day but I would go to the Dr. if I were you. All those toxic shock pamphlets make me nervous to even sleep with tampons.

I have!  I was in so much pain and could not figure out why.  I  had to be taken to the Emergency Room because of it.  Please go to the doctor and get it checked out!  This is why I don’t wear them anymore plus I really can’t anymore because it hurts so bad when they are in, even the slender ones.

Oh wow. I can’t say I ever have. That’s awful. You didn’t feel the string when you wiped or anything? Wow. 

This reminds me of a story in Tucker Max’s book “I hope they serve beer in hell.” The girl leaves her tampon in and forgets to take it out before sex. They have sex with the tampon inside of her, giving him really bad “road rash” on his dick (how could you NOT notice that?) he said he couldn’t masturbate or have sex for a whole week lol.

Not the same, but once I forgot that I taken it OUT and thought that it was lost. I got scared.
