Retained tampon issue prior to bfp

Postby berkmama3 » Tue Apr 11, 2017 12:30 pm

Got pregnant after having a retained tampon earlier in the month. Unsure if it's an issue and embarassed to bring it up to the doctor. Thoughts?

Hi, first of all congratulations on your pregnancy! This has never personally happened to me but I can totally understand how it could happen! I'm sure you are embarrassed but honestly I'm sure your Obgyn has heard this before and certainly heard much worse. I would definitely tell, I don't think it would cause any harm since you got it removed and feel normal, but I would still tell. You never know, they may want to start you on a round of antibiotics or something just to make sure you didn't develop tss. Maybe if you called and told them your story you would feel more comfortable?
