Am I at risk of getting Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS) when I’m using the cup?

TSS is a rare condition that arises from an overgrowth of a certain type of bacteria. TSS is known to affect menstruating women, especially those who use super absorbent tampons. Still, TSS is a rare condition with 3 to 6 cases in 100,000 people every year. TSS is not only related to the use of tampons. TSS comes from toxic bacteria that shock the body. This bacteria can be transmitted through surgery, childbirth and other infections. You reduce the chance of TSS by following the instructions of the menstrual products. For specific questions about TSS, we recommend that you make an appointment with your doctor.
