Question Posted Tuesday June 19 2007, 10:49 am

Okay so how long does it take for the symptoms for TSS to show? And is it curable? I left a tampon in for probably like 16 hours (give or take) and I'm scared that I'm going to get TSS. Is it a sure thing that i'll get it?

P.S. I didnt purposely leave it in. I put on a pad after my shower because i forgot i had a tampon in and then went to bed and now i have been awake and i just took it out because I saw the string.

Dont stress yourself out. When I was about 15 I put a tampon in without realizing i had one in. It was no joke in for maybe a week or two...Nothing ever happened. 16 hours is okay it's not a crazy amount of time. Relax and if you start feeling symptoms then you have a reason to be worried till them just breath.

Most symptoms have a quick onset, others you will not see until a couple weeks post. It is not a sure thing that you have TSS, but you should definitely call your primary care physician or gynecologist and tell them you are concerned. Here is what you can expect to see with TSS: sudden high fever, vomiting, diarrhea, dizziness, fainting, or a rash that looks like a sunburn during your period or a few days after. One or two weeks after initial symptoms begin, flaking and peeling of the skin occurs, mainly on the palms and soles. If your doctor determines you have TSS you will likely be sent to the hospital. With proper treatment, improvement is seen in two to three weeks.
