    Oh poor you! I would have freaked out too. Can happen easily enough, should definitely get checked out just to be sure.

    TSS is really rare. I've never seen a case of it in hospital over the last 15yrs I've been a nurse and I was a gynie ward.
    I'd do what pp have said and just check for signs of infection.
    If you get a temperature then see your GP or go to ED if it's after hours.
    Has your d/c and smell cleared up after removing the tampon?

    A girl at my school (before I started high school) had TSS and drowned in the school pool. Watch out for temperatures and get a checkup if it makes you feel better about it all.

    I've heard that this is a common thing doctors see, so don't be embarrassed to go to the GP if you're concerned and just want them to double check for you.

    How scary!
    DH and I have 'unmentionable' things that happened which we can never ever mention or talk about even with each other EVER!

    Yep, us too! Mainly around the extent of the help I needed after my c-sec's. *shudder* and mainly on my behalf for sheer embarrassment factor.

    OP, was your DH present during labour? If so, you have nothing to fear hun! Grabbing a string from your vagina would seem pretty mild compared to the aftermath of birth they witness
