What are the dangers of tampon use?

Is Toxic Shock Syndrome still a danger?


Answer by  A36 (629)

If used according to the directions on the box, there are no significant dangers. However, TSS is still a risk if you leave the tampon in for too long. It should be removed after 6 to 8 hours of use (depending on the brand).

Toxic shock syndrome is still a danger. They still have warnings on the papers inside of a tampon box. I think it is more of a danger than ever because of the absorbing ability of the new tampons. They hold a lot so women leave them in to long.

Toxic Shock Syndrome is still a very real danger but that's really about it. You could get a normal infection from them as well.
