Toxic Shock Syndrome: Way Beyond Tampons

Оценок: 7053 | Просмотров: 178546
If you've heard of Toxic Shock Syndrome, you might think you can only get it from tampons, but the bacteria that cause this problem are surprisingly common and we still don't know why they sometimes turn deadly.

I was hospitalized for over 2 months, stayed home another month and returned to school for half days because of strep throat. The doctor said there were signs that the infection may be effecting my organs. They pumped me with antibiotics and asprin. I was very weak for a long time and they removed my tonsils after I recovered enough for the operation.

Leave a tampon in for days!

Can wearing contact lenses for days on end cause toxic shock syndrome too ? Or can not replacing disposable contact lenses regularly cause toxic shock syndrome?
thanrose (19 дней назад)
Okay, I was a young woman in the 80s. My coworker's sister was suddenly hospitalized with high fever, etc. She was in a coma briefly, but recovered fully. Later that year, TSS was first described by doctors. Neither she nor anyone I knew regularly left tampons in for days or weeks. You might forget your last one of the cycle for a few hours longer, but it's not likely that legions of women were leaving them in for days at a time. It was last century, but we did understand hygiene.

Whoa I had no idea that’s why your supposed to change them so often, I thought it was a trick so you’d buy more of the product. And these products ain’t cheap. I switched to the cup about a year ago. I been using it almost completely for 2-3 months or longer now. It’s a money saver really. I’m up for anything that saves me around $10 or $20 a month.

Way beyond tampons, doesn't mention anything significant beyond tampons and strep throat. Poor choice of title?
DinosaurzNspace (1 месяц назад)
So glad I never used Tampons.. In fact I've never used one before in my life. Just letting it flow without a cotton plug just felt more comfortable and natural to me. Nowadays my period is nearly painless ! I get some pains the first 3-4 hours the first day, but that's it. I think not using tampons partially helped.

Rita María De León Osorio (1 месяц назад)
I rarely use tampons, but when I do it's mostly because I know I will probably not have easy access to a clean restroom to change pads or something... which makes me freak out every time.

I remember getting strep throat a lot as a kid, so much so that my mom just wouldn't take me to the doctor because it happened so often, so I was mildly horrified as an adult when I found out that the same bacteria could potentially have killed me. There are some things that are better never knowing.

I've seen a few comments about this, and I want to mention my experience. TSS can happen in women without tampon use. (Tampons increase risk) I had TSS from a skin infection several years ago in 8th grade. There was a big staph outbreak in my area and a lot of schools were actually closing and keeping kids home! I had severe eczema all over, so essentially an open wound that didn't really occur to me or anyone as a problem. It was just part of life. I went to school since it was the last day before Xmas break. Felt fine. But when I got home I was miserable. I'd had skin infections before. Many caused that clear (sometimes yellow) lymph fluid to come off my skin. And that happened quickly. I wasn't too concerned since my skin did that all the time. But then I got a fever. My eczema/rash/infection got worse. And when my mom realized I was severely dehydrated she called EMTs. I did NOT get TSS from a tampon. Like the video says, it can be from a cut. My situation was the perfect weird and a freak thing!! Absolutely be careful~ but don't frighten yourself. They kept me in the hospital, there was a special protocol for not spreading the bacteria outside my room, and I survived!! :)

Guess I’m starting my monthly “watches period videos while on period.” Seriously. This is getting ridiculous. Literally every month, at the perfect time, one of the channels I’m subscribed to posts a video related to menstruation. Creepy.

And wash your hands thoroughly before and after changing your tampon. The thought of someone wearing a tampon for days made my eyes pop. The smell alone must drive anyone insane.

Wait, so if ~50% of cases are from tampons and ~50% are in males, then that means that ~100% of cases in females are from tampons. What are the causes that are only affecting males?

my sister died last february because of complications of streptococcus type A during a flu.. now my country is making people aware of the risks that bacteria can have to healthy people.
