I want to start using tampons but im scared of the tss I think that's what it is. Should I be scared? How do I avoid getting it?

I want to start using tampons but im scared of the tss I think that's what it is. Should I be scared? How do I avoid getting it?

Some thoughts...: 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, so it is good to read the box. ...Read more

The best approach is to tell an ob. ...Read more

If i tell my doc I am not sexually active even though I am (because I am 16 and don't want my mom to know), what is the worst that could possibly happ?

Sterility: If you are sexually active you should be screened every 6 months for STD's.Since at least two of these can remain relatively free of symptoms while they quietly destroy your ability to have babies, you might want to reconsider. If you pick up a symptomatic STD the cause will be obvious, but proper treatment may be delayed if you are not honest. ...Read more

Hello well i take an birth control called gianvi and my cycle has been on for 13 days and I am very concerned i want to know what's wrong my mother has told me to stop taking them but i really don't know if I should or not

The : The hormonal make up of this pill is causing you to have an abnormal bleeding pattern. Your doctor needs a more detailed history (where in the pack the bleeding occurs). From there he/she can prescribe you a different pill. Typically it takes about 3 months for your body to get used to a new pill, however 13 days of continuous bleeding is not ok, but spotting can be expected. Best of luck. ...Read more

How do I stop cutting? I am not trying to die, i simply enjoy it. I have discovered I am not longer in control of it, it controls me. Am i crazy?

You have progressed to the point where it may actually be a compulsion for you, and you get a sense of relief (and "feel good") when you do it. You need a therapist and possibly medication to get you over the hump. ...Read more
