Tampons strings make tampon removal easier, but they are not essential - there are many tampons and other sanitary products like menstrual cups or softcups which don't have strings. All you do to remove a tampon without the string is reach into your vagina and remove the tampon with your fingers.

Why does a tampon have a string?

How do you take out tampons?

Just pull the string until it slides out. Each type of tampon comes with instructions that are important to read. The tampons have strings that are attached, and once the tampon is inserted properly, the strings stay where they can be reached with your fingers and used to gently pull out the used tampon. Read the instructions on the type you are using to be sure you are following all important instructions. If the strings are not where you can reach them, the tampon may have turned sideways which can happen with strenuous exercise, or may have lost the attachment to the string. In those situations, you may have to see a gynecological doctor to have it removed safely.

A transvaginal ultrasound would not see a lost tampon. Tampons can't get lost in the pelvis. A speculum exam would tell you whether there was a tampon in your vagina.

If you're using a tampon with a string then you just relax and pull firmly but gently on the string.

As long as you're relaxed and using tampons correctly there should be no discomfort.

How can you get out a tampon with no string?

You don't need a string to remove a tampon, strings are simply added to some tampons to make removal easier - many cloth tampons, sponge tampons, and soft tampons don't have strings. There are also other items like menstrual cups, softcups, diaphragms, and caps that don't require strings.All you need to do is insert your [clean] fingers vaginally and pull the tampon out by grabbing the tampon itself. If you struggle to remove the tampon be sure to relax, get into a squatting position and push down on vaginal muscles to move the tampon closer to the vaginal opening.If you still can't remove the tampon ask a friend/family member to help you, or you'll need to go to your doctor as leaving a tampon in over 4-6 hours increases risks of infections and TSS.

How do you take out a tampon?

If it hurts to take out, it is probably because it's too dry. So what I like to do is to just go to the bathroom (pull the string out of the way), with the tampon in. Then the tampon will get moist and it will be easier to slide out. It always works for me. :)

Should you go to the hospital if a tampon gets stuck and you cant find the string?

Is it easier or harder to remove a used tampon?

In theory it should be easier to remove a tampon. When you come to remove a tampon it will be saturated with blood, assuming you've used it correctly, so it will be softer and better lubricated so there is less friction upon removal.
