Once you’ve tried a tampon, you don’t want to use pads again. When wearing a tampon you can almost forget that it’s one of those days. Tampons are comfortable, discrete and much more practical than pads when you do sports. With tampons at hand, you won’t have to worry again about plans of doing some activities being ruined just because you are having your period. Another good thing about tampons is that they save you of the bad smell.
But is using tampons also healthy? The most serious risk about using tampons is toxic shock syndrome (TSS), a rare but very dangerous illness. While with your pad you can see when it is time to change it, it is not the same with a tampon. When using a tampon, you will have to remember to change it every four to six hours. Leaving one in too long, like all day or all night, can cause TSS.
Many women tend to use the most absorbent tampon thinking that this way they won’t have to change it as often. But when you keep a tampon in too long, bacteria can grow. If tampons are kept in for a long time, that gives the bacteria plenty of time to grow. These bacteria can grow within the tampon, enter the body from inside the vagina, then invade the bloodstream, releasing toxins that can cause a very severe, and occasionally life-threatening illness –TSS.
Symptoms of TSS include high fever, vomiting or diarrhea, severe muscle aches, a feeling of extreme weakness or dizziness, and a rash that looks like a sunburn. If you ever have these symptoms while wearing a tampon, remove it and go to the nearest emergency department as soon as possible.
So, while tampons can be most useful in some cases, doctors recommend that they be used alternatively with pads in order to prevent TSS. Or, even better, use high quality pads that can offer you high protection and comfort without putting your health at risk.
