What Brand of Tampons Are You Most Likely To “Lose” In Your Vagina? A Gyno Answers | Cosmopolitan



Dr. Ottenheimer: If someone is afraid there’s a foreign object in their vagina, after a few tries on their own, they should see their gyno. Searching around in there can lead to even more irritation, or even cuts if your nails are sharp. It’s much easier and less traumatic to let someone do it with good visualization, a long pair of forceps and a speculum. Takes a second that way. Guhhhh. But then, when you think about it, can you imagine if guys got periods? They’d forget tampons in there constantly. Come Superbowl time, there’d be at least five times as many panicked tampon retrievals. Anyway. Switch to Tampax Pearls! Those are my jam, and I’ve never lost one up there.



Dunno, there’s just something about ending your article about losing tampons in your vagina using the phrase “my jam” that is making us shift in our seat right now. Or maybe it’s that we’re linking to Cosmo. Both, prolly.
