Taking your question literally, the answer is yes, it is possible to lose a tampon in your body. Some people lose their glasses when they are resting on the top of their head, too. If a tampon string breaks off, it is possible for the tampon to get lodged into the back of the vagina, but it cannot get any further. So, if you lose a tampon, you need look no further than your vagina. The back of the vagina ends in the cervix, a narrow tube leading to the uterus that is much too small to allow a tampon through. Because the vagina is pliable and expandable, in some cases, a tampon can get lodged too far back to reach. Never stick foreign objects in your vagina. If you cannot pull it out with a finger, get someone to help you. If neither of you can do it, you must see a doctor.

Having a tampon lodged in your vagina can cause serious health problems and can even lead to death. First, the tampon will start to smell because it will probably have blood on it. Secondly, leaving tampons in too long increases the risk of toxic shock syndrome. Toxic shock syndrome is a rare disease, but if it occurs, it can be fatal. Before death you will experience fever, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, fainting, and rash. Along with leaving a tampon in too long, the risk of contracting toxic shock is increased by using tampons too large. Never use a tampon that is bigger than required for your flow.
