Ask Us:

Will my tampon fall out if I run?

When a tampon is properly inserted into your vagina, the muscles inside your vagina naturally hold the tampon in place so it can't fall out, even when running or playing active sports. When it's time to change or remove your tampon, these same muscles relax so you can take the tampon out.
