Can I insert more than one tampon?
No, wearing more than one is totally unnecessary and we do not recommend it! If you’re worried because your flow is extra heavy, you can feel confident that one tampon works for 1-2 hours and then change it.
Product Ingredients for Eco by Naty pad
Eco by Naty pads are made out of organic cotton and wood pulp. The leakage barrier is made from plant-based plastic.
Can I get TSS from using a tampon or a pad?
Tampons are associated with Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS), but can happen while using pads as well.
Toxic shock syndrome is a rare, life-threatening complication of certain types of bacterial infections. Often toxic shock syndrome results from toxins produced by Staphylococcus aureus (staph) bacteria, but the condition may also be caused by toxins produced by group A streptococcus (strep) bacteria.
Toxic shock syndrome can affect anyone, including men, children and postmenopausal women.
There is risk of TSS to all women using tampons during their menstrual period. There are scientific studies that recognize an association between TSS and tampon use, but the exact connection remains unclear.
The reported risks are higher to women under 30 years of age and teenage girls. The incidence of TSS is estimated to be between 1 and 17 cases of TSS per 100,000 menstruating women and girls per year.
WARNING SIGNS OF TSS ARE, FOR EXAMPLE, SUDDEN FEVER (USUALLY 102° F/38.8 C OR MORE), VOMITING, DIARRHEA, FAINTING OR NEAR FAINTING WHEN STANDING UP, DIZZINESS, OR A RASH THAT LOOKS LIKE A SUNBURN.
IF THESE SIGNS OR OTHER SIGNS OF TSS APPEAR, YOU SHOULD REMOVE THE TAMPON AT ONCE, DISCONTINUE USE, AND SEEK MEDICAL ATTENTION IMMEDIATELY.
