Is it bad if i accidently had two tampons in at the same time?

Well.... I'm on my period and I had a tampon in, but I didn't know I did and then I went to the bathroom and put another one in. It felt kind of uncomfortable, but I ignored it. Then I went to the bathroom about an hour later and I pulled out my tampon and I noticed there was another string and I had two tampons in!!! I freaked out so bad. Is it bad that I had that for about an hour?

ANSWER #18 of 20

In general, using two tampons is NOT recommended. Since you didn't have them in for that long, however, you should be fine. Just be sure to double check next time before putting another in. ^^

ANSWER #20 of 20

I knew a girl who put THREE tampons in at once, because she kept forgetting. Nothing really bad happened to her (no TSS) but she needed help getting the third one out, which was utterly humiliating for her. Personally, I don't understand how you can possibly forget you have a tampon in in the first place. Anyway, to answer your question, no it isn't bad unless you start getting a fever or other signs of TSS. Just next time make sure to take the first tampon out before you put in another one.
