TikTok user Melanie Galeaz left the tampon for two years | video

A woman has revealed the moment doctors discovered she had left her tampon in for two years.

Author Melanie Galeaz used TikTok to raise awareness of the dangers of toxic shock syndrome after revealing her experience using tampons.

The content creator explained that when she was a teenager, she started experiencing pain and strange gynecological symptoms.

However, doctors thought it might have been Lyme disease, as she had been bitten by a tick.

But two years later, he discovered the shocking truth.

“When I was little, I was bitten by a deer tick and had all the symptoms of Lyme disease,” he said in the clip.

“But the tests were a bit confusing whether I had it or not, but because I had all the symptoms and I was bitten, the doctors gave me the meds, sent me on my way and I was fine.

“Then my sophomore year of high school, I started having all these pains in my body and some really dirty things were happening down south.

“I went to the doctor, but I didn’t really mention the problems that were going on down south, which I know were my fault.

“But the doctor really ignored me and was being mean and scary. I was so embarrassed, I was about 14.

“It was really disgusting and embarrassing, and I just didn’t want to deal with it. But I was just hoping it was something related to Lyme disease and that I could ignore it with medication and it would go away.”

Melanie explained that she took the medication they gave her for the tick bite and that her pain was getting better.

But the gynecological problems she was experiencing were not improving.

“When I get stressed about something, I ignore it,” she said.

“But that never works, especially in this case. Two years later, in my senior year, I was still having problems.

“Finally I went back to the doctor and went to the gynecologist. He opened me, look and gasp.

“I’m like ‘well, that’s not what you want to hear.’ Then he says, ‘You have a tampon stuck horizontally under your cervix.’

“Taking it out hurt me, because it was dissolving inside me. It kept breaking and it was such an unpleasant experience. “

She said that looking back, she thinks that maybe she never had Lyme disease and that all her problems were because the tampon was stuck.

“I don’t think I even had Lyme disease,” he said.

“The doctors think I got some kind of infection in my body because of the tampon, which makes sense.

“For everyone asking about the smell, I come from a family that would have absolutely destroyed me if I smelled bad. It didn’t.

“Sometimes, I smelled bad and it saddened me to think that I just smelled like that naturally, so I found ways to mask it.”

Melanie also added that at one point she actually had three tampons inside.

“During that two-year period I pulled one and another,” he said.

“I have no idea how long this one was. So I had one for two years, one for an unknown amount of time, and one for about 8 hours.”

Earlier this year, Love Island star Maura Higgins shared her experience of leaving a tampon in for months.

The 31-year-old spoke about her terrifying experience on a British talk show in a bid to raise awareness of toxic shock syndrome.

The Irish woman contracted the disease after forgetting to take out a tampon, which made her increasingly ill.

Maura said she couldn’t figure out what was causing her illness, but was shocked after a doctor discovered the three-month-old tampon was stuck to her cervix.

“I had a really bad experience,” she told ITV’s Shopping With Keith Lemon.

“I’m not a doctor, I don’t know much about it. [TSS]but I know you’re not supposed to leave a tampon in for more than, I think it’s nine hours, I think that’s the maximum.

“When the doctor found it, it was stuck to my cervix. I was so sick.

“I didn’t know what was going on.”
