Woman hospitalized after forgetting to remove tampon for 9 days

A 20 year old student, Emily Pankhurst said she initially blamed exam stress when she started to constantly feel weak, bloated, yellow skin and feel faint. She said she didn't really panic until a few days later when she started to slur her words and suffer bloody discharge, so she went straight to the Doctor.


She told the Daily Mirror:
“I was feeling really ill by that stage. I was hot and dizzy and felt really strange. “I was bleeding more and my mum suggested I feel about and see if there was anything there.”

She said she checked her vagina then discovered the tampon was still inside her. She said when she pulled it out it was “pure black” and “obviously coated in bacteria”. Which made her rush to the hospital.

After being admitted to intensive care, Doctors said she was suffering from sepsis (blood poisoning) as a result of Toxic Shock Syndrome - an infection caused by bacteria forming on the tampon. The condition is believed to be caused when certain types of bacteria - which are normally found on the skin - get into the body through a wound, burn or through the vagina or throat, according to online search. And if it's not treated in time, can lead to limb amputations and even prove fatal.

The third-year criminology student said she had inserted the tampon during her period last month but due to stress had forgotten to remove it and insert another one

Doctors managed to save her life using antibiotics but Ms Pankhurst is still unable to walk long distances.
She said her boyfriend has been very supportive, he feeds her and carries her to places whenever she is very weak to walk.

Ms Pankhurst said girls her age are “not aware of the dangers of using tampons”.
She added:
“It is so important to keep an eye on your health, especially during stressful life experiences.
“I hope my story can help others like myself to take care of your health and not take your life for granted because you never know what might be around the corner.”

Oyefunke Jolaoso said...

As much as tampons are good it shouldn't be left inside for more than 6-8 hours so I wonder why she would forget such inside.
Crazy!

Pearlie said...

Thank God it didn't get to the worse. Sanitary pads is better,because you can't give an excuse of forgetfulness.

Silly pig, she will likely forget her child in school for days, if she doesn't get a call from the school authority.

skygirl could you please listen to yourself. With all the sense you claim to have, you can comment such trash.

FourthOfApril said...

Your comment simply cracked me up!

I bet she's going to sue the tampoon maker for not sending her a reminder letter to remove the tampoon. Dirty pig. She didn't smell that nasty period smell for 9 days, even her boyfriend didn't. Ezi!

Forgetfulness is YOUR fault, not the fault of the Tampon. I'm so tired of people bashing Tampons. Whose fault is it you don't know how to use and manage it?! Foh with your judgment ! Tampons 4 life!

Odunayo Danny said...

She inserted new one and forgot to remove previous one.

Brown sugah said...

This right here, is an example of a very dirty woman. It simply means you didn't have a bath in 9 days.or you didn't think to wash your Vagina in 9 days because if you did, you would have found that string .

Hembafan Tilley-Gyado said...

Skygirl, how can one be menstruating and leave a tampon inside her for days? Was she not constantly taking a bath or at least washing her veejay?
Extremely dirty girl.

Hembafan Tilley-Gyado said...

Beyond carelessness. Dirty and smelly girl.
If she was taking showers the tampon would have been noticed. They have strings attached. Not unless... you don't want to know

Hembafan Tilley-Gyado said...

She had sex that's why it was pushed in. String and all.

Anonymous said...

If u're uncomfortable, means u don't insert it properly.

i dont understand some ladies, is she not supposed to wash her private part when bathing? how can she be that lazy not to put her finger and wash her private part well? and her boy friend should notice stuff in there too while doing it..... some people sef

sarah ogbaudu said...

Lol mumu. Come and take award. Tampon ambassador

Anonymous said...

Skygirl is right, such things happens. If you don't have sex etc. You just bath and wash yourself only outside. Ladies let us be honest, not all of you clean inside your vagina each time you bath. And tampons comes in different sizes...a mini you can't feel it unless you are using it during menstruation, some of us women we use tampons without menstruation. We are different. Yes 9days is a long time, but honestly the stress exams and assignments can cause is unbearable for a young woman of her age!!! Please chill and even on the package of tampons there is a warning of TSS.
