forgotten tampon?
Hi Gynaedoc..

I know this is going to strange impossible but its been bothering me... i had my periods about 2 and a half weeks ago and think i might have forgotton my 2nd last tampon and inserted the last one (which i removed). is there anyway to know that the other one is still there and if i did take it out?

I have had intercourse afterwards and nothing feels funny

If you had a tampon inside for two weeks, it would proabbly be very smelly by now and you would know about it. You should be able to have a gentle feel around with a finger to tell if there is anything in the vagina.
