the urban dictionary definition of mens rights activists is so spot on it hurts-

‘a bunch of whiny pedantic morons that think there is some vast illuminati feminist conspiracy while seemingly ignoring the fact that their own gender runs and ruins the majority of the world’

Toxic Shock Syndrome

bustyyorneekaps:

ilikesocialjustice:

Fact: Toxic Shock Syndrome is not limited to people with vaginas.

Toxic Shock Syndrome caused when you have a bacterial infection and the bacteria excrete a toxin that shuts down your internal organs, causing death. While the use of tampons carries a risk of toxic shock syndrome, for reasons I will explain below, anyone can get it. Jim Henson’s death from a staph bacterial infection was due to toxic shock syndrome.

Tampons can cause toxic shock syndrome because of their absorbancy. When a tampon is inserted, it absorbs the menstrual blood…but it also absorbs the natural mucus lining the vaginal wall. If your tampon is too absorbent, it can actually stick to the wall. When you pull it out, tiny ulcerations can occur.

Naturally, this messes with the PH of the vagina, and can bacteria to set up shop. And thanks to the tiny ulcerations in your vagina, they can now enter your bloodstream, and wreak havoc.

If you use tampons, use the lightest absorbancy you can, NEVER leave them in overnight, and alternate them with pads. Furthermore, don’t leave them in the bathroom. The moisture makes it more likely that bacteria may grown on them.

I personally recommend using a menstrual cup instead. It takes some getting used to, but it is far more comfortable and less messy than conventional methods, can easily be left in overnight, and has never, to my knowledge, been associated with health risks.

Furthermore, they are reusable, as you boil them to sterilize them after each use, thus saving money in the long run. I recommend boiling it before each use, just in case, and inserting when you anticipate your period so as not be caught off guard. Also, they can become discolored after several uses. This doesn’t mean that they don’t work, but you might want to toss it into some water with denture cleaner when your cycle is over to make it look less yellowed.

Look up “menstrual cup” on Amazon and you’ll find them.

Don’t forget about disposable cups, for those who might not want to use a reusable product, or can’t afford the upfront cost of a reusable cup (I lucked the hell out, I got my diva cup for free from a rep for the company).

And if you are ever at all concerned about the materials used to make disposable pads, you can purchase or even make your own reusable ones.

These kinds of products certainly aren’t for everyone, though and whatever you are comfortable with using is just fine ^_^
