Toxic shock syndrome: Toxic shock syndrome or TSS, happens when tampon is left in place for long periods of time such as 8-12 hours. It is unlikely to happen with frequent tampon changes from 2-3 hours. You can safely leave a tampon in place for 4-6 hours. More about tampon use http://youngwomenshealth.
