If you’re new to using tampons, you may have a bunch of questions, like can a tampon fall out. It makes sense. After all, you’re sticking something in your vagina with nothing underneath it to hold it in. So, Can a Tampon Fall Out?
The answer is no. And that’s because of how tampons work.
Tampons are held in place by the walls of your vagina – and your vagina walls are pretty strong. This means you won’t have any surprise runaway tampons while you’re being your awesome self throughout the day. If you’ve inserted your tampon properly (read: if you’ve inserted it far enough in), there’s no chance of your tampon falling out.
If you haven’t pushed your tampon in far enough, well, technically your tampon won’t fall out. It just was never in to begin with… If this is the case, you’ll know because you’ll be able to feel your tampon. You’ll know you’ve inserted your tampon far enough because you won’t be able to feel it as you go about your day. For more info about how to properly insert a tampon, click here. Then, tampon on without any worry of your tampon falling out.
Of course, there’s an exception to every rule. Sometimes when you’re going to the bathroom, exerting the muscles you use to push out poop can also push your tampon out and into the bowl. But no biggie. You’re already on the loo. Just a put a new tampon in. This is totally normal and happens to a lot of girls sometimes. But just going about your day? No. Your tampon can’t fall out.
