Ok I used a tampon once last year and swore I'd never use it again bc I hurt. I used a small but this time I had no choice so I grabbed one of sister and used it but after four hours wen I got home I couldn't get it out my mom said it'll come out wen it's ready and not to worry bc wen she used to use them shed leave them in a little longer than eight hours. But it's been way past right hours. Blood is dripping out the tampon and u can see that it is completely saturated so idk y it won't come out. It really really really hurts wen I try to take it out. Maybe I got to big of a sized tampon Idk but please help I've tried everything

Hello and welcome to EmpowHer,
Since you posted this question almost 18 hours ago, I'm hoping you were able to get it out by now.
If not, here is what you need to do.
Start by relaxing your body. Your groin/vaginal area is made of muscles so contracting them under stress will add to the problem. So first relax. Then, while you pull, use your pelvic muscles to push. It may be uncomfortable/painful but you need to either do it yourself, your see a doctor.
