Currently, I have a condom stuck inside my vagina. Will my period be delayed until the condom comes out?

Thank you for your question. You have a couple of options. However, one thing is for sure don’t leave the condom in your vagina. Leaving the condom behind in your vagina can lead to irritation, or possibly an infection. To get it out, go into the shower or lie down and try to be relaxed.  Reach into your vagina with one clean finger and feel for the condom.  Once you locate it, use 1 or 2 fingers to gently remove it.  It can be slippery and so if you can’t get it out, absolutely NOTHING sharp (i.e. tweezers, scissors, kitchen tongs, etc.) in your vagina.  If you can’t get it out, then schedule an appointment with your health care provider (HCP) or gynecologist to help you retrieve the condom. However, we strongly suggest that you schedule an appointment as soon as possible with your provider. If you were using the condom for pregnancy prevention, talk to your health care providers about emergency contraception.
