lol. YDI I use tampons and even though i have never have had the string break, u dont shove it up there really deep. it could easily be taken out with ur fingers. the nails arent a precautioanry unless ur like cat woman....and really how could you not have thought of taking it out with your fingers? Unless you use tampons for DIFFERENT reasons. lol.
I can believe this, because I have had one break on me before and it is a moment which can only be summed up by the words 'Oh My Fucking God.' Fair enough, I managed to 'push' mine out when that happened, but it was a very humiliating and difficult experience which made me scared to use tampons for ages. As for pulling them out with your fingers, many girls (including myself) would find that a daunting experience - fingers are NOT meant to be inserted that far into a vagina, and plus, I guess the OP was worried she may make the situation worse then what it was. The instructions on my current box of Tampax state that if you cannot 'push' the tampon out and can not feel it very well with your fingers, you should seek medical attention. There is nothing about the OP not already trying to remove the thing with her fingers, she may have tried it and have it not work - I highly doubt she thought 'Oh God, my tampon is stuck, I'm not even gonna TRY and sort this myself, I'm just gonna let a strange man look up my floo pipe and see if he can drag it out.' God, these 'You should have done this' posters should really think more about what they are saying.
Wtf 74, fingers are not meant to be stuck up that far? have you ever heard of fingering? the fingers usually go as far as they can, and I'm sure it's further than the tampon goes. also I've gotten tampons stuck, they were all the way in there and I could easily pull it out. but I was also sitting down, so when you're sitting the vagina length shortens. but still, you saying fingers arnt meant to go up that far is dumb. I guess a penis is only allowed to go a certain length in there too?
you couldn't just use your fingers? the string shouldn't really be necessary...

"she could have "pushed" as if she was giving birth." Oh what a joke. You've never had a baby, have you? I haven't, but even I know you can't just voluntarily push to get a tampon out. The contractions you have during birth are involuntary and use muscles that you generally can't voluntarily move. Yes, we can move the muscles in our vaginal walls, but not significantly enough to push a tampon out. That's ridiculous. And to all those people who are like "Just use your fingers, it's not that hard" - uh, actually, it is. I've had to do it. Firstly, if you are male and if you're a female who's never used a tampon, shut up and go away because you have no right to espouse your serious lack of knowledge on the subject. Not only do you have to fit your fingers up there (which is easy enough), but then you need to open them wide enough to grab the tampon. That might be ok for your flexible birth canal, but it's a bit more uncomfortable down at the opening which doesn't stretch quite so much! And it'd be more difficult for a virgin too. Having said all that, I agree the OP did overreact and could have got it out herself. It's awkward and takes some time but it's definitely possible.
Um, actually, I *have* had to *push* a tampon out like this, just like I periodically have to *push* large clots out when I have my period (the muscles you use to push a baby or anything else that gets stuck in there are the same muscles you poop with so contractions aren't necessary). I've also had to use my fingers to fish out a tampon as a virgin multiple times. If you're upset about the situation and tense up, yeah it'll be difficult and hurt, so you've still got to take a deep breath and relax, just like you need to when you take the tampon out with a string.
when my menstrual cup manages to shift itself up to the top of my vagina (where a tampon sits) i can get it out with a combination of muscle contractions and reaching with fingers. It does that at least once each period. It's awkward and takes a bit of patience, but it's defintely possible. OP if it happens again, try getting it out during a shower. the relaxing effect of the warm water helps a lot.
56, I think you need to firstly understand why contractions are necessary for the birthing process, and then come back to me. It opens up the cervix so the baby can exit the uterus and fit through, as well as help it come out of the canal. So yes, while contractions ARE necessary for giving birth to a 4-7 pound baby, they are not needed to get a piece of cotton out of your vagina. But good job at trying to sound smart. I'm sure any 12 year old girl would have believed you. And FYI, I am a female that uses tampons every month, and I do not have a loose vag at all. I have had to resort to "pushing" the tampon out, then reaching in with two fingers and grabbing just a corner of the tampon to pull it out. You don't need to grab the entire thing at once.
Lilabear, really? A tampon can easily come out halfway just sneezing or pooping. A vagina isn't some kind of bottomless cavern. A vagina relaxed is only about 4-6 inches deep, and a tampon takes up about half that length at most. If OP could fit a tampon in there, she could have fit a finger or two to pull it out. She probably freaked out and overreacted.
AAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!! D: that is why I do not use tampons, just reading this aaaahhhh!!! I may need to grow up. :3
Now I wonder, are you a man or a woman? (No sex indicated) Knowing this information can make this a lot worse.
