Read the title of this post before you continue.
and if you're still with me. here it goes:
Yesterday, I mentioned that I've had some girl issues the past few days and I wasn't sure if I should share or not.. but the overwhelming feedback says share away! So prepare for this. And I'm sorry if it grosses you out.. but it's life.
First I'll set the scene:
We're at the lake, a guy I have been on ONE date with is coming up to join us for the day, along with a bunch of other family friends. I wake up feeling nauseous and so so sick... hello period. Which when that time of the month comes around I always feel sick, it's never fun.. mix in the lake and special company and it's just reeeeally not fun.
I'm warning you now.. it's seriously TMI and probably more than you want to know.. so if you aren't game click away now.
With that being said...
I put a tampon in, and we headed down for the lake.
It was this guy's first time on the lake, so I sucked it all up and rode the jet ski over a million bumps and waves, kneeboarded, and tubed. I'm talking serious tubing.. Mama shows no mercy on the tube... and she especially didn't this time. I had the most extravagant wipe out to date, and was jostled around a ton.
We eat lunch. I head up to the house to go to the bathroom.. go to change my tampon and the string is GONE. GOOOONE!!! Which I know sometimes you have to feel around for it a bit, but friends.. I felt around and it wasn't there. AND on top of that.. I have a boy waiting on me that I don't know super well yet and I have to act like all is fine and dandy. So I called mama, we decided: HEY! maybe it fell out and I didn't realize it?! (so sick.) and I put another in and headed back down. That's all I could do until everyone left and we could figure it out anyways.
Well the day goes on, and that night when I took a shower I had to feel more of myself than I've ever wanted to. Like, basically gave myself a freakin pap smear. And I couldn't feel it anywhere. This would only happen to me.
So we just kept telling ourselves it probably came out, I didn't realize it, I did have a pretty spectacular wipe out on the tube.. but I still felt like that was weird and I would have felt it.
SO we get home Tuesday and I finally have internet again so I google it. I mean, this isn't that uncommon.. and I read other ways to check and symptoms of stuck tampons. So Wednesday morning I checked ONE last time to make sure.. and I could feel the very tip of it. But it was too far to get out myself.. so I had to call the gynecologist and go have it removed. EMBARRASSING. Apparently it had gotten turned sideways way up in me... And I won't say anymore than that because I don't want you to be too grossed out.
But ladies, that was nasty. I hope it never happens again. I SWEAR, it would ONLY happen to me.. because I really don't handle this sort of stuff too well.
and I don't think I'll ever use this brand of tampon again. I typically only use Tampax Pearl.. and this one was what we had on hand.. and yikes. I like the pearls soo much better.
Has this ever happened to you or anyone you know?
and again, I apologize for sharing my girly issues with you, but we seriously have laughed so hard about this. It's the joke of the year at home.
