anyone ever 4gotten a tampon?

Am so embarrassed but anyway we r all ladies here.

Yesterday I had constipation and was straining on the loo. I managed to make a poo – and what with all the straining, from the front out fell a tampon??!!!

I nearly passed out esp as my period is due in a couple of days hence this tampon has been up there nearly a month, must’ve been the very last tampon from my last period. It was white in colour meaning I put it up there when the flow had actually already stopped.

I haven’t been smelling bad or anything (I guess due to the fact that the tampon had thankfully not come into contact with any blood) but I was mortified to realise I’ve had a tampon up there for a month.

Is there anything I need to do to wash out properly or anything?

At age 34 I feel so embarrassed that this shd happen. The longest ‘mistake’ I’ve heard of is a week or so.

This actually also happened to me in High school. Also came out by itself (at a friends house). I also felt so embarrased!
