Dear BeingGirl Experts,
Do you have to remove a tampon while having sex?
If you're asking me should you remove a tampon, the answer is yes, you should remove a tampon before engaging in sexual intercourse. If you are asking does it ever happen that sex occurs while a tampon is still in place, the answer is yes. However, if you have sex with a tampon in the vagina it will be pushed up into the furthest part of the vagina and will be very difficult to retrieve. You may have to squat and insert your thumb and forefinger to try to locate the string or the tampon itself and pull it out. You should not leave a tampon in your vagina for more than eight hours.
