However, the incidence of menstrual cases of this disease has fallen significantly since removal of highly-absorbent tampons from the market. I don't know what a menstrual cup is. Perhaps you mean cervical cap or diaphragm. Although rare, contraceptive sponges and diaphragms may be associated with tss. ...Read more

"very low risk": The question being asked is "great risk" or "very low risk", with a typical girl. The CDC says that in 2010, there were ~2000 new cases of HIV in the U.S. in young women.

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, 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, makers of tampons sold 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
Nope : It's usually beyond their scope of practice & depending what specific high-risk condition you have, you should see either a mfm or an OB experienced in your care. It's possible that a certified nurse midwife (cnm) can help with routine care (timed labs, routine exams, etc) but only when working with that OB doc and only when that specialist is available 24/7.
