Tampon(need help huryy!!)

Okay,
So I sit down to Pee this afternoon and I start to pull my tampon out.
I pulled really hard, and i heard it rip, but it was too late, the tampon was already out. The end of the tampon was kinda ripped. I am not sure if a piece of tampon is still in me or not, or if just little tishes ripped off. What should I do. I cannot feel anything.

Re: Tampon(need help huryy!!)

But, I am only 16, and I'm scared that if I see the Gyne, He will tell my mom i am sexually active and stuff. Is there any thing i can do at home to help it?

Your gyno can't tell you're sexually active if you're using tampons- the hymen would be ripped anyway.

And besides- I think doctor/patient confidentiality would apply and he wouldn't be allowed to tell her anyway...although I doubt he would tell her even if he knew and could.

Re: Tampon(need help huryy!!)

Doctor-patient privilege can't be broken, it's against the law. He cannot report back to your parents about you being sexually active or not. If you are concerned there is something still left inside you, best get that checked out. Especially due to the bacteria that can harbor in tampons, hence why you are only supposed to leave them in for no longer than 8 hours. Also, don't take the chance of putting in another one until you get any left over pieces out; it will push anything up further and make it more difficult to reach.

Best of luck,
Bright

Re: Tampon(need help huryy!!)

This happens to me sometimes (not the hearing it rip part, but where the end seems a little torn after you pull it out.) I think it's more likely with some brands. If I ran to the gyno every time this happened, I'd be there constantly. It does worry me, though, so I'm thinking about using them only on heavy days. I don't remember this used to happen, so maybe they are changing how they make them in recent years or something.
Did you go to the doctor and what'd they say?
