In sex, like in sports, you’re making sudden movements, and your adrenaline is rushing. Therefore, you may not always notice when things are going awry. So during sex, as with sports, you can unexpectedly get hurt! Here are some of the most frequent sex injuries you can sustain while having a roll in the hay.
A lost object
The most common objects to get lost up there are condoms and tampons. If a woman forgets to take a tampon out before sex, it can get pushed further into the vagina during sex. Don’t worry: it can’t travel up into the body. The opening of the cervix is not large enough for that.
What to do
In many cases, you can get the object out yourself. Don’t try this immediately after sex, as your vaginal canal is still aroused and open. After your vagina “shrinks” again, that alone should push the object to a place where you can reach it. In some cases, though, you might just have to have a doctor get it out.
