Remove tampon for urination?

Posted by Ditza Katz in Women's Health 03 Jul 2014

Quite a few women still believe that their genitals are comprised of one ‘multi-purpose hole’ and would, therefore, need to remove the tampon for urination.

Could the confusion come from comparing the female genitals to the penis with its one-tube-for-all-purposes structure?  Possibly.

So ladies, here is the anatomical fact: you have one opening for the vagina, and one for the urethra.  Although next to each other, these are separate openings, leading to different organs: the vagina leads to the cervix and uterus, and the urethra leads to the bladder.

And the tampon? It sits in the vagina.  Read more at Tampon Remvoal.
