THIS Common Hygiene Product Put This Mother In A Coma!

Deborah Usher was a fit and healthy 27-year-old mother and hospitality exec living in Wales, UK. In August of 2011 she fell terribly ill. Her symptoms felt like a normal flu but within a couple of days, her health had dramatically deteriorated


When her condition worsened to the extent that she couldn't walk or talk, she was rushed to the intensive care unit.

She was put into an induced coma for a full week by doctors in the hope that the rest would help her body fight the infection. Doctors tried on several occasions but failed to wake her up.

Her family was told to prepare for the worst after she was put on life support. 

One week later she woke up but she still couldn’t speak or walk.
Deborah was suffering from Toxic Shock Syndrome.

A tampon was to blame for her illness.

What Is Toxic Shock Syndrome And How Do Tampons Cause It?


Toxic shock syndrome is a potentially fatal, medical condition that occurs when the bacteria staphylococcus aureus bacteria enters a person’s bloodstream.

The bacteria can be found normally residing on human skin
Tampons have the potential to cause microscopic tears in the wall of the vagina where this bacteria can enter.

You should be aware that although toxic shock syndrome normally occurs in women who use tampons, it can literally happen to anyone.

Symptoms of Toxic Shock Syndrome

If you notice any of the following symptoms, it’s recommended that you head to the hospital immediately:
  •     A fever of 38.9ยบ C or higher
  •     Fainting and light head
  •     A widespread red rash on palms and soles
  •     Low blood pressure
  •     Confusion, lack of spacial awareness
  •     Seizures
  •     Severe headaches

Long-term the damage is common when a person has toxic shock syndrome.

In 2015 Deborah said:

“I would never use tampons again after I know what I do now. They’ve completely ruined my life. Four years on and I still have a weak immune system, I don’t think some of my memories will ever come back.”
30% of women who get toxic shock syndrome experience it again.

What you can do:

Toxic shock syndrome is a rare condition so don't panic too much. 

There are other options that you probably already know about if you are concerned however.
Try to stay away from the super-absorbent tampon variety. 

Always change tampons regularly. Most cases of infection happen when tampons were left in for more than 30 hours.

You can always convert to pads or menstrual pants.
