What are the physical risks of tampons?
Verified by Dr. Heather Irobunda, MD OB/GYN
Our Answer
What our doctors say
Using a tampon can increase your risk of Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS). This means you just have to change out soaked tampons and not leave them in for too long. If you are experiencing any severe pain or ongoing irregularities, check in with a doctor as you may be suffering from an underlying issue that can be treated. A tampon could be forgotten about and left in too long, which can cause vaginitis (vaginal infection) which can either be bacterial vaginosis (BV) or yeast. Oftentimes, the symptoms that you may notice if you left in the tampon too long is a bad smelling discharge.
