I am 36 years old. I have used tampons for many years. For the last few months it feels like my body is rejecting the tampons. About 15 to 30 minutes after I insert the tampon I can feel it coming out. I have never had this problem before and have not been sexually active in over a year. I have been treated for BV in the past but am not currently having any odor like I did at that time. I am wondering what may possibly be causing this. Thanks for your help.

Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
It is difficult to comment on the exact cause for the tampons getting expelled out without through examination. If there is vaginal irritation or infection causing vaginal irritation resulting in increased vaginal tone, chances of tampon getting expelled could be possible. Visit your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation, clarification and assistance if the problem remains persistent. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately.
Take care.
