"RETAINED FOREIGN BODY"

Ladies, for those of you that use tampons, please tell me; how easy is it to forget you left a tampon in? I think most young women have learned not to do this, but when I have to go fishing for a tampon lost in the vast expanse of some poor woman's vagina, I start to wonder.

Please, ladies, remember to take you tampons out. It is extremely dangerous to you health to leave them in (toxic shock syndrome), and to be honest, the smell of a tampon stuck for days in that warm dark place is enough to kill a horse.

As an ER nurse, I have to agree. Thank-you for your words of wisdom!

Now, now, give the poor lady a break. Stray tampons can happen. Was it a very young girl? Was she just stupid and had sex without realizing it was still there--and then it got stuck? Maybe she was drunk for a week and it just kind of...dissolved. At least these days we no longer have to deal with those damnable "Today Sponges".

You may want to be careful what you do with your thumb and you may not have so many patients request you for this so pleasant exam.
