Hi jturania.

Thanks for your question.

ya tampon can travel high up and causing infection.

Do you have pain abdomen and fever?

I think you have a UTI or pelvic inflammatory disease so do a routine urine test,that will confirm UTI.
Do a USG lower abdomen and that will confirm if you have PID and also do a routine blood count.
and visit your gynecologist with the report.

Best wishes
