Hey!! I have this fear that one day when i try to pull a tampon out the string is gonna break! Is this going to happen? How would you get it out if that happened? ThanksSmile


hey babes, that isnt going to happen but I guess if it does, you either have to reach up there and grab it ( a tampon isnt going to escape into your body so dont worry) or you will have to go to a doctor and have them get it out. xo JANA

Hey girl, TSS is super rare so you're not likely to get it, but it's important to change your pad regularly to protect yourself against protection. Aim for every four hours.

I am not afraid of tampons, I am afraid of TSS. I know that it is really rare, and I realize that I won't get it if I change the T every 4 hours, but I sometimes get this feeling that the rare bad thing is going to happen to me. I always feel like something bad is going to happen to me, or I am going to be in line for something and they run out right when I get up. How can I get over this fear? I know that it is stupid, but I can't help it!

Hey girl, I know exactly how you feel, but remember this: life isn't worth being worried about every minute: you'll never be able to enjoy it if you're dreading the next moment. Take a deep breath and know that more than likely, you won't get TSS. You can always use pads if you feel more comfortable with it, but don't worry about TSS, girl, really. Take care of yourself and just enjoy the ride. Highlight the good things that happen to you over the bad and stay optimistic. Bad things happen to everyone, but good ones do too.

MOD MOD MOD MOD Alyssa B. answered one of ladybuglover28 's questions which asked which hole to put the tampon in. Alyssa B. answered, either hole will work. Blood only comes out of one hole right?? Plz answer cuz I am like totally confused!!!!!!!

Hey girl, I think you're misinterpreting because I def didn't mean it like that; I may be referring to another part of the question. The thing with tampons is they just take a little practice putting in (and there is only one hole). Read the instructions -- or ask your mom for your help. You'll get the hang of it in time. Sorry for the mix-up.
