You're in the middle of an intimate makeout sesh with your partner, and you both agree to take things to the next level.

How to handle a tampon that got pushed too far
Though it may pose some logistical concerns, there's no scientific evidence that having sex during your period is harmful to your health. Some women even find that having intercourse while menstruating brings several benefits and is more pleasurable than it is at other times. It's important to remember, though, that just because your body is eliminating your uterine lining because an egg was released but not fertilized doesn't mean you can't get pregnant while you have your period. Having sex while on your period has several benefits that are due to physiological changes that occur in response to intercourse. Cramping during your period occurs because the uterus is contracting to shed its lining. Many women find that orgasms may relieve their menstrual cramps because the uterine muscles contract and then release, easing the constant state of muscle tension during this time. And, of course, sex triggers feel good endorphins, which can get your mind off the pain and discomfort. Muscle contractions during orgasms push uterine contents quicker. That means you could have shorter periods if you are having period sex.

Back to Women's health. It's not possible for a tampon to get lost inside you. It'll stay in your vagina after you have inserted it. The only other opening is through your cervix at the top of your vagina. But this is too small for a tampon to pass through. Tampons have a string at 1 end that usually stays outside your body. You can remove the tampon at any time using the string. It's possible for the string to end up inside your body.
