Okay, so the day before yesterday, I woke up and couldn't find my tampon string. I couldn't remember if I just didn't put one in the night before for some reason or if it was lost? I felt around a little and couldn't find anything. I put another one in and changed it regularly throughout the day. Then, last night I drank a little too much. I thought my period was over and I usually put one in anyway just to be safe. Anyway, this morning, I pulled out a tampon that was completely brown and smelled bad. Is it possible that this was the one I had "lost" coming out? I never have tampons that are completely "full" and are brown and smell bad....No odor now and the blood on the tampon I just took out was light red and barely there. I felt around like people had said and I don't feel anything, but I'm not super familiar with how everything is supposed to feel with my fingers up there. (Please don't post anything negative, I know I'm not the only person this has happened to).
