General Toxic Shock Syndrome Information
Toxic shock syndrome is a condition caused by the release of toxins and poisonous substances due to an overgrowth of the bacterium staphylococcus aureus. When the toxins are released, a sudden drop in blood pressure occurs, which can lead to death. Toxic shock syndrome tends to affect menstruating women who use super-absorbent tampons, but cases have been traced to the use of contraceptive sponges, diaphragms and cervical caps. Toxic shock syndrome most often affects women age 19 and younger. The condition tends to recur, so anyone who experiences toxic shock should always be on the lookout for symptoms and should seek immediate medical care if symptoms arise.

Possible Causes of Toxic Shock Syndrome
The main cause of toxic shock syndrome is a toxin made by the bacterium staphylococcus aureus. This staph bacteria is normally present in the vagina, but it is not known how it causes toxic shock syndrome. What is known is that two situations must be present in order to develop into toxic shock:
There must be an environment favorable for the toxins to grow (such as a blood soaked tampon)
There must be a way for the bacteria to enter the blood stream (such as through tiny tears in the vaginal walls caused by sliding tampons in and out).

Super absorbent tampons have been identified as leading to toxic shock syndrome because women tend to leave them in place longer, which can create an ideal breeding ground for toxins, and because larger tampons more easily scrape the sides of the vagina, leading to tears.

Possible Symptoms of Toxic Shock Syndrome
Symptoms of toxic shock syndrome include fever over 102 degrees; vomiting and/or diarrhea; a peeling, sunburn-like rash on the fingers and toes; dizziness; confusion; and cold, clammy skin, which points to a sudden drop in blood pressure.

Possible Lifestyle Changes for Toxic Shock Syndrome
Using sanitary napkins is the best way to prevent toxic shock syndrome, but using regular-sized tampons can also reduce risk. Be sure to change tampons regularly and never leave any device (tampon, cervical cap, diaphragm or menstrual sponge) in place for more than 24 hours. Toxic shock syndrome is a life-threatening condition. Anyone who shows symptoms of the illness should see a doctor immediately.
