Thanks for posting your query. When you check yourself, if you can find the tail or string of the tampon , pull it out. If not seek medical advice immediately, as a tampon left behind for a long time can cause infection which could have serious consequences rarely(Toxic Shock Syndrome).Hope this helps, Take care!
