My b/f and myself had intercourse 4 nights ago while intoxicated... During which the condom must of became lodged in my vagina without either of us realising... during the next 3 days i suffered a severe headache and felt very ill! Then the condom dislogded itself 3 days later as i wnet to the toilet only then did i realise it had been there... i have felt better and my headaches are gone but is it a case of toxic shock syndrome? I sstill feel a little of but i think i may just b worried? Shud i seek medical attention immediately?

What you experienced could definitely be a form of septic shock. You do need to see a doctor ASAP so you can get antibiotics to fight off whatever infection you may still have. If you are not on any other hormonal birth control, you need to ask your doctor about emergency contraception. Also, definitely plan to get an STD screen soon (your boyfriend, too!).
And in the future, avoid binge drinking because as you just found out, it can lead to high-risk or negligent sexual behavior.
