    Or is it not even on your radar?

    I’ve heard a lot of girls talk about how they “forgot” a tampon in themselves for weeks before. But I’m always thinking about how long it’s been in because I’m paranoid about TSS and losing my limbs to a tampon :iik:

    Obviously as a male, tampon use is not a risk factor for me (although I've been accused of acting like I have something stuck where the sun doesn't shine, but I digress), but deep wound infections, and any immunosuppressive health problems are, and fortunately I've never had to deal with those issues.

    My girlfriend uses pads rather than tampons, as tampons are not widely used where she's from. So, I don't have to worry about that for her...and I think if a woman can use a tampon and forget she's using one, then tampons are not for her.

    Maybe, it is because their cooch is big like the grand canyon that they didn't even feel it? I don't know. :imslow:

    I once heard a story of a whale who had over a dozen stuck up there.

    I think a decomposing fish carcass would be a source of TSS for sure! :eek:
