So… how difficult is it to just stick two fingers in and pull it out? And why would this take 3 + hours to remedy? Furthermore, if you had an “issue” previously, wouldn’t that be a errr, red flag, that maybe you shouldn’t be putting things where you can’t get them back? I think she’s just craving attention – in all the wrong ways and places :/
What?!!!! Pads are disgusting..you have to actually DEAL with the mess and the ODOR is so much more worse.
People you walk past can probably TELL you are on your rag. At least with tampons its a pull out and replace. You don’t have to deal with the mess of pads, the odor…and it doesn’t feel like you’re wearing a goddamn diaper!
And..how hard is it to use your vaginal muscles to push out the tampon? Even if you can’t get your fingers up that high (Which btw would mean the tampon is TOO high up). Also… they do make tampons now without strings. Most women have the muscle control to be able to push them out.
It’s funny tho because she said it happened twice that month, how many times does she get her period a month, and if it’s the same period shouldn’t she have said it’s the second time it happened this week?
The most likely scenario is that she forgot to remove it before putting another one in, causing it to get jammed right up in there. She probably continued doing this for a day or so, and when she started reeking like the dead, and there was barely any flow, she realised what was going on. Unpleasant, but it can happen. But twice in as many periods? That takes a special kind of stupid. Girl needs to work on her baton changes.
@ uranus1mcangus – TSS is EXRTEMELY rare. Kind of like being the kind of idiot who needs medical help to get a tampon out.
I understand accidents happen (by accidents I mean having sex while on the rag and not removing the tampon, or what wordpervert said). Sometimes you gotta work a little to get that sucker back out. I’ve even heard of people asking a friend for help. But for god’s sake, you should never have to go to the hospital to get it out. Your vagina is not bottomless. The tampon’s in there somewhere. You don’t need a fucking cave expedition complete with hardhats and ropes to find it.
uranus1mcangus, have you ever used a tampon? You do realize that you pull the plastic out, right? Or you can get ones with cardboard applicators, or no applicator at all, if the plastic that is in your vagina for approximately 2 seconds is that scary for you. If it is that scary for you, how do you use condoms? Or vibrators?
meh chuckled @ cave expedition complete with hardhats and ropes.
Also, just a thought: there was a comment on a previous post about this app that enables people who’ve lost their phone to retreive it. This app just might be the solution to Alexandria’s recurring problem. Just attach phone to string -et voilá.
@33 Wandr are you saving yourself for marriage? I think they should make those tampon insertion tubes spring loaded. The removal procedure leaves room for improvement too, make the string longer, long enough to reach the floor whilst sitting. Simply placing one foot firmly on the string and getting back to standing position, should make removal effortless.
i call shenanigans. just a guess, but perhaps her mother is batshit crazy and stuck in the dark ages and made her post this on facebook so all the boys would see that she is (for lack of a better word) tight and thus a virgin. i had a good friend in middle school whose mom was like this and made her do similar shit all the time (minus the use of facebook as it wasn’t around yet). needless to say, things didn’t turn out well for her. push your kids too far one way, they’ll usually go the other.
@34 Your post gave me an idea… Maybe make them tampons with a long string tied to a cotton ball. When you have a tampon on, sit on the toilet, the cotton ball gets soaked in the toilet. All you have to do is flush, and the water pulls the tampon out, and flushes it away. You don’t even have to worry about putting it in the garbage can, or cover it in toilet paper!!
When she was about 13 or so my old best friend got a jumbo tampon stuck up there… So I’m not defending this chick (as has been been mentioned, it takes a special kind of stupid for this to happen twice), but I just want to say it can happen to non-idiotic virgins/people with skinny naughty bits.
Many of you may not know this as have probably never met anyone with this issue, but there is this thing called a septate hymen. It’s not exactly common, but it’s not uncommon either. It’s where you have a string of tissue at the entrance of your vagina. It splits the vaginal opening into two, and isn’t usually noticed until one tries to use a tampon, but if you have sex it will probably break. It is actually relatively strong and many people need to have surgery to cut it. When pulled at (e.g. if you have a tampon stuck and try to pull it out) it pulls at the vaginal walls causing intense pain. Therefore, you need to go to the ER to get it removed. They cut the tampon up and pull it out. It is a terribly embarassing experience for a girl to have. I know this because one of my best friends had to have a tampon removed and still gets embarassed talking about it, even though it was a few years ago. She hasn’t used a tampon since.
Now I am not saying that this is what this girl has, but it could be. Or a similar issue.
And in relevence to the all the people saying she probably has a tight vagina and a large tampon, she would still be able to get it out easily. During your period your vagina is usually well lubricated(yes, with blood) and the tampon should slide out with little effort. Even if you were a bit dry (I know this is disgusting), with a little more of a tug, the tampon would come out.
And I can see it coming that people are going to say that the people at the ER would have told her if she had a septate hymem, and if you think that you would be wrong. They have done their job and got the tampon out, and then they need to help other people and wouldn’t have time to go into an decent explanation of what a septate hymen is. My friend had to go to the doctor to fully understand what it was.
Now I’m not saying that it was a wise idea for this girl to put this on facebook, but I thought I would add a little medical knowledge of my own.
