Hi BeingGirl Experts,
I'm afraid to use tampons because I heard that when you pull a tampon out, some of the fibers stay in your vagina. Is this true???
Fibers may come off any tampon you use. This is not a problem because the natural cleansing process of the vagina (your daily vaginal discharge) removes these fibers within a short time; usually a day or two. Even though fibers can come off, this does not create a health risk.
Hope this is helpful,
Your BeingGirl Experts
