Unable to take tampon out – should I see a doctor?

Patient: I’m unsure what to do, my tampon has gone to far inside me for me to retrieve it. I was very drunk and had sex, i’m pretty sure i didn’t take it out before hand (I know, it was extremely silly) Should i see a doctor or is there anyway i can get it back out?

Doctor: You will need to see a doctor or a gynecologist as soon as possible to remove the tampon. If a tampon is retained for to o long, it may lead to a serious infection known as Staphylococcal toxic shock syndrome.
