I finished my period approx 2/3days ago and noticed that I was getting dark brown discharge and a not so pleasant smell. I don't normally get the dark brown colour and certainly not a smell with my period so this had me worried. I then realised that maybe I still had a tampon in. I didn't feel like I had and after examining myself I couldn't feel one in. Totally freaked out I started googling the symptoms and found lots of women say that this had happened to then and they had a tampon stuck in.
So freaked out and starting to panic I asked my husband to have a look, he couldn't see anything so I told him to feel around and see if there is anything, to my horror he found a tampon wedged in and could just reach the string enough for me to grab the string and remove.
It was the most horrific and embarrassing moment of my life and I don't think DH will ever be able to look at my vagina again.
Anyway my question is should I be going to the doctor? I have no idea how long the tampon was there for and now I'm worried that maybe there is another one in there or it has caused some damage?
How this ever happened to anyone before?
