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?

hello. i have no idea if i have a cold or flu or what. i was looking online but they say a cold you would have a runny nose. i do not but my nose is a little plugged [i can still breathe..and i thinks its been like this before..i dont think its allergies because i am not sneezing] i was coughing (it's getting a little better). i do not have a headache or puffy eyes. i started feeling bad (sore throat- it hurt to talk and swollow) maybe on the 19th or 18th [every so often coughing really bad as well] and i have been taking plenty of Airborne. Today my throat does not hurt when i speak (it doesnt hurt when i swollow..it just feels odd) and i have not been coughing as much (maybe 1/2 or 1/4 of what i was coughing like]. Is this a cold or flu or what? and is it contagious [still? how would i know if it was] ? i do not want to get my family sick and i would like to haang out with a friend this weekend.

Hi, I have a problem with my ear. It all started with simple sneezing that made both of my ears itchy inside. The itchiness goes down from my ears (inside) to my throat. Sometimes I feel like my throat is dry and the sides of lips itch too. I've tried consulting an EENT doctor, she said my ear drum was inflammed, so she recommended that I take an anti-histamine tablet. The generic name was Ceterizine. I've been taking that tablet for like 3 weeks now. The itching stops though but I don't think I'm completely healed. What could be the problem? I'm really worried right now that it might be a fungal infection, I don't want fungus/bacterium eat my tissues inside! What do I need to do?
