What should I do to get my pill out which is stuck in my nasal cavity ?

i got a birth control pill stuck in my nasal cavity how do i get it out? It sounds stupid, but I was taking my birth control pill and accidentally laughed as I went to swallow it, and now it is stuck in the nasal cavity and I can t seem to get it out. How do I dislodge it without having to seek medical attention? And will I have to use further protection or will the pill still be effective?

Is it causing any symptoms ? Where exactly in the nasal passages ? If it is lower down try to sneeze it out and if it is in the upper part then I would suggest you to see an ENT specialist.Yes you have to use further protection because it is not a nasal spray and absorption from the pill in the nose will not be 100%.

Hi. I just got over my cold, but somehow, I can feel that there s some very thick mucus left in my nasal cavity. I can breathe fine. I don t have post-nasal drip. But the mucus is just stuck there and sometimes it even makes me want to gag. I try blowing my nose and also coughing it out, but nothing comes out. I just want it gone completely.

I have a 10 month old that woke up Wednesday very congested and you could hear all the mucus in her nasal cavity. Shortly after she got up she started vomiting what looked to be mucus. She did this about 3 times through out the day. She seemed normal and happy. She had very loose stools Thursday, Friday,Saturday. She started vomiting again Saturday and all through the night. She is still having wet diapers and she is keeping some pedialyte down. I nursed her at 4:30 she kept that down I nursed her again at 8 and she vomited that all back up. Should I take her to the doctor?

I have been fighting what feels like allergies since Christmas. I can keep it at bay with allergy medicine, but even that doesn t help some days. The pressure in my ears is pretty bad at times too. When I blow my nose I get the metallic taste/sensation. It usually starts with sneezing (a lot) and the roof of my mouth feels tender, then drainage (clear), ear pressure and headache.
