Model lost her leg to toxic shock syndrome

She lost her leg due to a bacterial infection from a tampon. Now, she's creating awareness and trying to prevent TSS (toxic shock syndrome).

    There is a written warning on the box, but I don't consider that risk of danger is well explained. That's why I avoid them. I had problems, although I used them properly. However, women usually don't take it seriously because topic is not so famous and what this girl does is very brave. I am glad that she is alive :)

    It even says on the box that getting TSS is a possibility using tampons. That's why you use them correctly and take them out between 5-8 hours That's her own fault

    It's a sad thing that happened to her but at the same time that's her fault. It's her responsibility to know the dangers and how to use a tampon correctly. If you think you might forget or be awhile until ou can change it, use a pad...sorry not sorry.
