Is It Ok To Use 3 Tampons At Night
If I wore my tampon for 7 and 1/2 hours on the last day and it's three days later should I still be worried about tss?
Not so much: It's often recommended not to wear a tampon longer than 8 hours. So I wouldn't be too worried if you "wore" one for 7.5 hours. Try to make sure you use the minimum absorbency necessary, too. ...Read more

As : As doctors, the first thing we do when we hear a woman is having a light or missed period or abnormal spotting, we check a pregnancy test.

A home pregnancy test is 97% accurate if taken a week or more after the missed period. There are other reasons besides pregnancy that can cause a woman to miss a period such as: stress, diet, excessive exercise or a hormone imbalance such as with a thyroid disorder or poly cystic ovarian syndrome. If you have a positive pregnancy test or if you continue to have an irregular cycle, you should give you doctor a call. Good luck! ...Read more
