Can I Get Tss If I Use A Tampon Before My Period
Very unlikely: Since super-absorbant tampons have been redesigned, the risk of tss has continued to decline. The risk is less than 1 in 100, 000 women who are menstruating and using supe-rabsorbant tampons. The lack of blood as time of use of such a tampon would be predicted to lower risk even further. ...Read more
The menstrual cycle begins with the shedding of the uterine lining, resulting in bleeding from the vagina. A few weeks later, one ovary releases an egg and the uterine lining thickens in preparation for a potential pregnancy. Pregnancy can occur at this stage if sperm fertilizes the egg. If the egg is not fertilized, the egg will leave your body and ...Read more

I started my period but am going to the beach, I'm using a tampon for the first time. I'm worried about tss and I'm scared it will get stuck.
Normal: It's normal to have these fears when using a tampon for the first time. So long as you change the tampon when you get back from the beach, you'll be fine. The vagina actually isn't that big, it has elastic tissue that allow it to stretch, but you won't lose tampon. Don't be shy, just get your fingers up there if you can't find and push down like you're going to have a bowel movement at same time. ...Read more
Are pads a risk for Toxic Shock Syndrome? I only use pads (I know, :/ lame huh) on my period, but do they also pose a risk for TSS or only tampons?
Some thoughts...: Officially yes for tampons, but one can change tampons frequently, at least every four to six hours. Don't leave a tampon in overnight, and use only one tampon at a time. Also, tampons in the U.S. no longer use the materials or designs that were associated with toxic shock syndrome years ago. The instructions on a box of tampons will have safety suggestions. Pads are not a cause of toxic shock. ...Read more
Yes: Yes-epecially if you use super tampons and leave them in for long periods of time. I'm not sure why you want to wear a tampon if you don't have a period. If its for a discharge, consider a mini-pad or panty liner. ...Read more
Can you get toxic shock syndrome from the plastic from a tampon being left in your vagina? I have had a fever and chills, then extreme periods of sweating along with a lump behing my ear and one that is getting pretty big on my neck below it. These lumps
Toxic : Toxic shock syndrome was felt to be secondary to extremely-absorbable tampons, which became associated with staph and strep infections. Toxic shock syndrome has symptoms of high fever, rash, and often vomiting or diarrhea. If a patient had high fever, vomiting, and rash, then they should consult with their physician. The reasons for swelling behind the ears and in the neck may be a different cause of infection. ...Read more
Panicking!! Very end of my period and accidentally left a tampon in for 9 1/2 hours!bFeeling fine right now, but how long until I know if I have TSS?
Unlikely: Toxic shock syndrome is caused by a bacterium. The symptoms include chills, pain, and fever. It is not impossible, but unlikely that a period of a few hours of leaving a tampon in place will cause toxic shock. If you experience any fever or chills or if you continue to be worried, speak with your primary medical provider. ...Read more

Doctor may help...: The doctor can teach tampon-use. Women and girls all over the world use tampons... which means there is no medical reason to not try tampons in the modern world. If the swimming is not tomorrow, one can ask the doctor about starting typical birth control pills, not to prevent pregnancy, but to prevent periods. Some pills have bleeding scheduled for just one "period" every 3 months. ...Read more

Hi I use tampons and at the start of my period I get a very bad pain in my stomach when I urinate, it does not burn, it just makes my vagina feel very swollen and doesn't let a full wee out, what could this be (only happens when I am on my period)?
Yes: Yes, especially if a super tampon.Get a more detailed answer ›
Yes: Toxic Shock Syndrome from Tampon use is rare. It is most commonly caused by Staph or Strep bacteria and the risk is increased when tampons are not changed frequently.

Will I get tss? I left in a regular absorbancy tampon, when I needed a light one, for 6 hours. When I tried taking it out, it was dry and had to take a bath to wetten it.
If : If you have not gotten toxic shock syndrome (tss) already and you removed the tampon, then you'll be ok. Tss is caused by staphylococcal bacteria that can grow on an inserted tampon that has been left in too long. Usually, once the tampon (or other foreign body) is removed, then the source of infection is gone. Below, I've attached a website with more in-depth information on tss if you are interested. ...Read more

Reach inside : There really is no place it can go. It cannot be "lost" inside. Gently reach inside with your fingers. It won't be difficult or painful. If you cannot remove it yourself, see your physician right away. There is a risk of tss with a retained tampon. ...Read more
