Ok, well this is slightly embarrassing. I'm on my period and decided I would try a tampon. I got it in and it felt funny when I sat down - it felt as though I was sitting ON it...like it was pushing up against me. And so, I tried to get it out, but it was stuck. Could not get it out. Wouldn't budge. And then I had a vision of me in a hospital with doctors having to remove the tampon with pliers and I freaked the heck out.
Anyway, I got it out after about an hour of walking around (couldn't sit) and eventually standing in the shower, which made it ease out.
Why did this happen?! It was SO painful! I've been sexually active since I was 18 (I'm 20 now) and my boyfriend lives in the US (I'm in Canada), so we only have sex for a couple weeks every 2 months. I don't know if that was relevant or not.
Oh, and I'm on Alesse.
Why did it get stuck?!
I think I'll stick to pads for the rest of my life in fear of this happening again.
