Removing a tampon is as easy as putting one in! Well actually, it’s much easier since there is only one step!
Start by sitting on the toilet. Reaching inbetween your legs, pull the tampon string out the same angle that you put it in and it should just slide right out.
I like to do this sitting down because it is less messy this way. Any blood that drips out just goes into the toilet bowl and the tampon doesn’t fall onto my panties.
Once you’ve removed your tampon, wrap it up in toilet paper and throw it in the trash. Do not flush the tampon.
Using tampons puts you at risk of contracting Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS). The following is a list of TSS symptoms but only one or two symptoms may occur:
- Sudden fever (usually 102°F or more)
- Red rash that looks like sunburn on any part of your body
- Dizziness or feeling faint when standing upUsing tampons puts you at risk of contracting Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS). These are TSS symptoms but only one or two symptoms may occur.
