Precautions for use
Do not wear a tampon for more than 6 hours.
When to change tampons?
You should change your tampon every 4 to 6 hours. Wash your hands before removing it. The tampon is easier to remove when it is completely saturated. Gently bend your knees, keeping your legs apart, and relax. Pull the string. This should make the tampon glide out of your vagina. Wrap the used tampon in paper and place it in the waste bin. Wash your hands once again. If you do not manage to find the string immediately, wait until the tampon is totally saturated, adopt the squat position and push until you can grasp the tampon with both fingers. If you do not manage to remove the tampon, make sure you have removed the previous tampon. Do not forget to discard the last tampon at the end of your period and do not use tampons before menstruation or between two periods.
Information on Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS)
TSS is a rare but dangerous infection caused by toxins of bacterial origin (Staphylococcus aureus) usually found on the skin and in the nose. This infection can affect men, women and children, but the risk of contracting TSS is higher in teenagers and women under 30 years of age. Though rare, it is important to know what the symptoms are so that you can take action if necessary. It is also crucial to be able to recognise the first signs of TSS so that you can treat it from the outset.
The symptoms of toxic shock are as follows: high temperature of sudden onset (39° or higher), nausea, vomiting, loss of consciousness, diarrhoea, muscle pain, throat pain, skin rash similar to sunburn.
Only some of these symptoms may appear. Left untreated, TSS can cause serious infection with fatal consequences. If you notice one of these symptoms, remove your cup immediately and consult a doctor.
