Thanks for support and backup. Because I am aware of the risks of TSS but I just simply didn’t have time to change my tampon, and yes I had a pad also. Also the first time it’s happened to me, so just a bad and very messy day, I’m usually much more hygienic with those sorts of things.

You need to change your tampon every few hours otherwise you could get toxic shock syndrome. That's probably at least part of why you felt sick.
How did you take out a tampon and get blood anywhere but down into the toilet? And that much blood would have just bled through the tampon earlier.
Damn! Maybe don’t wait so long to change your tampon? Or wear pads if you’re not up to the maintenance. Gross!
<i>you don't have to change pads as often as tampons.</i> In what universe? Just from a flow-control perspective, pads have to be changed much more often than tampons, especially on a heavy-flow day. and there's much less chance of catastrophic over-flow with a tampon.
YDI. I'm sorry, but it says right on the directions to change your tampon every four hours. I'm also smelling bullshit
