What to Do If a Condom Gets Stuck Inside You

If a Condom Ever Gets Stuck Inside You, Here's What You Need to Do

So, a condom just got stuck inside you. First and foremost, don't panic! Your vaginal canal is not an endless abyss, which means it's impossible for the condom to get "lost." See ahead for steps on safe removal and keep reading to find out how you can prevent this from happening to you again.

Step One: Try to remove the condom yourself.

Using two clean fingers, relax and gently insert them into your vagina and feel around. If you reach your cervix toward the end of your canal, feel around the area to make sure the condom isn't pinned against your vaginal walls. Pull it out once you find it. If you're still unable to retrieve the condom, make an appointment with your gynecologist to remove it as soon as possible to prevent any infections.

Step Two: Do one more sweep.

In the chance that the condom tore during sex and caused it to slip off, try checking once again for any pieces that may have been left behind.


Step Three: Get tested.

Even if you were able to remove the condom, you'll want to get tested for pregnancy and/or STDs since you did have unprotected sex at some point.

If you want to avoid this situation in the future, be sure your partner properly puts on a condom that fits. Your chances of slips and tears increase if the condom is too big or too small. Also, double-check the expiration date of the condom before putting it to use!
