    Are you sure it did not come out in the toilet bowl???

    If it is lodged up inside you - you MUST go to A&E and get it removed - however embarrassed you are ... as otherwise you can get Toxic Shock Syndrome. They will have seen this and worse many times.

    Hope you are ok.

    Okay, the tampon isn't there or the string isn't there? Was it an applicator tampon or not (applicator tampons tend to sit higher inside the body)?

    If it's an applicator tampon it's quite possibly still there, but somehow the string has come off. If you can't find it on your own, Beverley is right, you should go to A&E and get them to remove it.

    If it was a non-applicator type and it's still there you should stand a much better chance of getting it out on your own.

    If it had actually left your body you'd have felt it, so my money is on it still being in there.

    Oh, it's so difficult to put some of this stuff delicately!

    Don't panic, though. Also, try taking a hot bath and having a search for it before going to A&E, but don't leave it that way overnight.

    If your son's mate's mum there - ask her to stay with your son.

    Really this is important you get it out. Kate has given you good advice above - but if you can't find it - you must go to hospital hun.

    Ring NHS Direct 0845 46 47 and they will advise you. You will probably need to get it removed but they may be able to advise you on trying to remove it yourself.

    Don't panic!!

    Please let us know everything is okay. You know I don't live all that far from you and could probably come and give you a lift if you needed it.

    Are you ok now, hun?

    You've had some great advice already - personally, I would get into a warm bath and try to remove it in the water..

    Please let us know if you're ok.....

    Was on CD last year, lost 35lbs. I need to lose another 21 but haven't decided which diet to use yet
    Maybe she's gone to hospital. I suppose that NHS direct will have told her to go there rather than try to remove it herself.

    Hope you're okay Nic:)
