Ask your BF for help, if possible. Lay down on your back with your knees up as far as you can and feel around to see if you can find it.
It doesn't really have anywhere to go, but sometimes you can miss one.
User :   what if i still can't feel it by tomorrow morning?
Doctor :   then u should see a gynecologist near by..he will remove it
