I used a tampon for the first time yesterday and took it out after 2or 3 hours, today I put one in for school and changed it after......

about sixish seven hours. first off I'm a hypochondriac really bad! I felt fine all day but maybe 15 mins ago I felt real hot, maybe from my long pants and no ac and the hotness in my apartment, I had a headache but I usually get them. I'm still a bit warm but not as hot (haven't taken temp yet) could I have TSS??? I always wash my hands before I put in a tamp. thanks

It would not happen that fast. You are probably hot from the heat. And making yourself anxious. You will be fine.

*sigh* Didn't you read package? It takes more than two days, and you didn't use them for long, either.

No, but don't leave a Tampon in that long any more, or it's gonna smell really bad when you remove it.

Poor you!! And maybe your just getting a headache or getting sick, you can only get it for keeping it in longer than 8 hrs.

Quite frankly, I prefer the organic tampons as a natural version of everything is better in all cases! Tampons won't cause TTS unless you handle them with unclean hands and wear them for very long periods. I tend to wear during the day and use pads to sleep in. Remember to clean yourself regularly.
