Lost the Tampon String?

Question: How do I help remove my daughter's tampon?

Dr. Farah Kroman: Tampon strings are very tightly bound inside the tampon and don't fall off. The string should be left hanging out of the vagina. Other than the regular way of pulling on the string to pull the tampon out, it would need to be reached with two fingers. If that's not possible she should see a doctor who can help. If there is one stuck in there, don't wait too long before getting medical attention.
