    OB makes two kinds, but they're best known for the applicator-free kind. Which I, for the life of me, could not figure out how to use. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

    Oh good grief. I'm the first poster on the second page of a tampon topic. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif[/img] [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_redface.gif[/img] [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif[/img]

    But I want to know if Oops was successful in her, um, quest.

    How long has it been in? If it's in longer and is more full, it's going to be easier to get out. I agree that getting into a bath and removing it there is a good idea. It won't be dry and rub on the way out. Don't be tense, just sit in the bath and slowly give it a try. Things like this happen all the time, you'll live.

    Has happened to me too!

    But now I wear pads...nearing the pause, but still have bleeds sometimes like now. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif[/img] Tampons hurt too much. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif[/img]

    I never thought I'd be offering this kind of advice over the internet, [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_redface.gif[/img] BLUSH! But here goes...another thing [I think I heard this on the radio acutally] - try squatting - this, er, um, shortens the, um.......try squatting. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_redface.gif[/img]

    you could go to the emergency room if you're freaking and really can't get it out... (i won't tell the story of me and what happened back in the day when those contraceptive sponges were popular. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif[/img])

    and, FWIW, all the ob tampons i've ever used have strings.... just no applicator.

    Could be she's putting those OB's in upside down! I mean, if she can't see the string! Now, if Oops gets really tensed up, it may be pretty darn tough to remove for a while. Try squatting and PUSHING at the same time. ANd breathe, for God's sake!!!!

    Oh the insanity! I was weaned off those after about 2 soccer games. Haha! I'd rather pull 10 defective tampons out (not at the same time of course) [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_razz.gif[/img] than use one of those cursed feminine articles.

    Oh yes! Tampons are much, much, much better for riding (comfort-wise anyway) [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

    I just have to say that if anyone ever needs help in the field of tampon application (I don't know about removal. . .), FatLilPony is the woman for the job. What with her foolproof visual aids and all.

    Edited: Hmm, I can't find the best one... of her demonstrating step two. This is step one. (AKA, "this is a tampon.") Oh well, if anyone viewed the infamous pic thread back in April, you'll know what I mean.

    ...who knows about these things, [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img] you can simply put another tampon in alongside the other one, wait, and when you take the new one out, the old one should come out with it. Tampons can't "get lost," so you should be able to find it. I hate to sound gross, but maybe try using a mirror?

    Anyway, I was an all-napkin girl until I was 18. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif[/img] How I ever survived riding that way, I don't know. But once I tried a "cork," as one of my friends so eloquently called them, there was no going back.

    I don't know anything about the O.B.'s. I'm a classic Tampax chick! Biodegradable, flushable wrapper AND applicator. Feminine products are so bad for the environment, I figure it's the least I can do. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

    Good luck with your...er...predicament. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

    Heh, no luck yet but a very brave friend of mine is on his way to help me out. The sad part is I don't wear tampons very often because this same thing happened to me a few years ago, and this same friend helped me out back then too.
    Even scarier, I'm not the only female that he has helped in this, er, predicament.
    Sorry to have posted this, although I did notice someone "cough Fjord cough" was amused. I'm just sorta freaking out here, and it's been there for about 16 hours now, and i'm starting to get a fever. Probably psychosomatic since I am the drame queen.

    First of all, let me say that this is one thread I never thought I'd post to. Secondly, although I can vouch from personal experience that what sbt78lw's mom says is true, I wouldn't recommend it. Due to a very unfortunately timed memory lapse, I once found myself attempting to remove two tampons at once, and it was the single most excruciating, agonizing moment of my life - it may very well have served to cement my decision never to reproduce. Admittedly, the things were of the super-ultra-mega absorbant variety and could probably have held a couple bucketfuls of fluid. But seriously, if two tampons made me want to die, then I find it very hard to believe that trying to eject a creature the size of a watermelon from my uterus really wouldn't finish me off once and for all.

    Cheers,
    Susie

    My goodness girl, you should be able to get it out without a guy friend ummm that is kind of worrisome. Both in the way that you need a guy and he has done this before(by the way how exactly did he do it?) and that it is still in there. Fever I would say because you are freaking out totally. Relax it can't be so far away that you can't reach it? Okay so lets think of something calming and reach in and get that sucker!!!!Tweezers???

    1. Relax. TSS is so incredibly, incredibly uncommon. Like... I'd be less surprised if you got anthrax or something.

    2. I've accidentally left them in for 24 hours before. I wouldn't recommend it, but I did live to tell about it.

    3. The fever is probably from frantic... um... search and removal efforts, or, as you said, all in your head. (Ah, you probably wish the problem was with your head right now. . .)

    And the person coming over to help you out is a "he"?! And this is the SECOND time he's done this for you, AND you're not the only one he's helped?

    Hmm.
