Okay, so I came home from a church dance last night and changed my tampon. I went to bed at about midnight and woke up at about 8, so my tampon wasn't in there for very long. I was reading a book in bed, when I shifted and felt something was off. I went into the bathroom and found that I was bleeding heavily. Confused, I tried to pull out my tampon. BUT I CAN'T FIND IT! I've tried all of the online instructions of "bearing down, using one finger to find it, etc." but I can't find it! I looked around my bed, but the tampon hasn't fallen out. Please, I am so scared and have no idea what to do! I'm only fifteen and terrified of going to my mom about it. She isn't exactly "there for me." So, I have no way of getting to the doctor. Please, can someone help me?!
