Warnings

Toxic Shock Syndrome Information (TSS): What is TSS?
TSS is a rare but serious illness that may cause death. It is caused by a toxin (a kind of biological poison) which is produced by a type of bacteria (staphylococcus aureaus). These bacteria are found in the nose of about one-third of the population. They may also be found on the skin and occasionally in the vagina without causing harm.
Who is at risk?
TSS can occur in both males and females of any age, but is more common in young women who use tampons during their periods.
How does it occur?
If the toxin is produced in the vagina or a wound and absorbed from there into the bloodstream, a person who is not resistant to the toxin may become ill. Most people develop resistance to the toxin (that is why the illness is so rare) and in these people there is no harmful effect. The symptoms of TSS may develop rapidly. Early recognition and treatment of these symptoms can usually prevent serious illness.
What are the symptoms of TSS?
The early symptoms may begin suddenly and are similar to the ‘flu’ feeling very ill, headache, muscular pains, high fever and chills, usually 39 degrees celsius (102 degrees fahrenheit), vomiting, diarrhea or both, fainting, dizziness, weakness or confusion and/or sunburn-like rash.
What must I do if I think I have TSS?
If, during your period or shortly after, you have any of the above symptoms, REMOVE YOUR TAMPON AND SEE A DOCTOR IMMEDIATELY. Remember it is very important to tell the doctor that you have been using tampons. If you have ever had TSS, you should not use tampons until you have discussed the matter with a doctor. You may not have developed resistance to the toxin and could get TSS again.
Do tampons cause TSS?
Please note that tampons are not sterile and neither are your hands or vagina. Tampons while containing very small amounts of bacteria normally present in the air, have not been shown to carry the bacteria which causes TSS. However, tampon use has been associated with an increased risk of TSS. Although TSS can occur with the use of tampons of any absorbency, the risk increases with the use of tampons of a higher absorbency.

Common Uses

Menstruation

Ingredients

Our tampons are made from 100% certified organic cotton. 100% cardboard applicator.

Directions

 Your first time?
If you are using a TOM Organic applicator tampon for the first time you might need a little practice. It may help to try them for the first time on a heavy day of your period when your vagina is well lubricated. Take a deep breath, relax and listen to your body.
1. WASH YOUR HANDS THOROUGHLY BEFORE AND AFTER INSERTING TAMPON
2. Take the product out of the wrapper
3. Get into a comfortable position. Most women either sit on the toilet with knees apart, squat slightly with knees bent, or stand with one foot on the toilet seat.
4. Insert the applicator. Hold the outer insertion tube by the finger grip with your thumb and middle finger. With the removal string hanging down, insert the tip of the applicator into your vagina at a slight upward angle, approximately a 45 degree angle (see image 1). Slide the outer insertion tube all the way into your vagina until your fingers touch your body.  5. Push the tampon inside. Push the inner tube with your pointer finger all the way into the outer tube, or use your other hand to push the inner tube (see image 2).
6. Remove the inner and outer applicator tubes at the same time. (see image 3). The tampon should now be comfortably inside you, with the removal string hanging outside your body. When a tampon is inserted correctly you shouldn’t feel any discomfort or pressure.
Note: A TOM tampon cannot fall out because it is held in place by the muscles at the vaginal opening. It will not become lost because the opening of the cervix is far too small to allow a tampon to pass through.
7. Have I inserted my TOM tampon correctly?
A TOM tampon cannot be felt if it has been inserted correctly, so if you feel discomfort or pressure, the tampon may not have been inserted properly or be far enough inside the vagina. Relax and push the tampon in further or simply try again with a new one. Do not insert a tampon if it hurts to do so and never insert more than one tampon at a time.
8. When to change your TOM tampon?
If you pull gently on the cord you will be able to tell if it is time to change. If the TOM tampon does not move, it is not saturated and there is no need to change. Though your needs will depend on your individual flow, you should change your tampon 4-6 times per day. Never leave a tampon in for more than eight (8) hours at a time. We recommend that on each day of your period you use the lowest absorbency tampon needed to suit a light, medium or heavy flow.
9. Removing the TOM tampon.
Simply pull the withdrawal cord at the same angle the tampon was inserted. Always remove the current tampon before inserting a new one. If you should ever have trouble finding the cord, the tampon can be reached easily from a squatting position.
10. Remove the last tampon used at the end of your period.
