My cousin has been using tampons for a couple of years, and after using the bathroom as I came home she came running to me almost in tears just now freaking out. She went to remove her tampon- she thought she put one in as always, she's never forgotton, but she couldn't find the rope. She washed and stuck her finger in (to hopefully the right spot) and used a mirror and saw "nothing but pink". She doesn;t understand how she could have just forgotten to put in her tampon, regardless of the fact that she had just spotting today, but she only had reg. tampons and was too embarrassed to ask for lites. HOWEVER she has the tendency to always take the tampon, keep it on the counter as she urinates, and then takes it from the counter. THere is one unused tampon on the counter, so it is hopefully very likely she just forgot to put it in, but she has no clue how she could have just forgotten, when she says she never has. But when I asked her when she wiped if there was any traces of blood she said no, whcih was odd because she would have expected it if she wasn't wearing a tampon. She doesn't want me to take her to the hospital in case she totally forgot to put it in, and her parents are too far away to help out if any, so I don't know what to do! THis is why I'm not a parent! I thought it was just a myth that you can just loose the tampon in yourself, but especially if you were wearing a tampon of high absorbency wheny ou had a next to nothing flow? What do I do about her? Thanks!
