Tampon changes

I'm a little concerned: I accidentally left my tampon in overnight (for probably a 12 hour period and it was a regular flow tampon) now I'm freaking out that I may get TSS :(

Hi Anonymous,

Thank you for your question and welcome to EmpowHer. I don't think you will get toxic shock syndrome from one time. For more information about side effects from TSS, please click here https://www.empowher.com/condition/toxic-shock-syndrome.
