This dangerous disease is caused by bacteria that multiply inside absorbent materials, such as tampons.
If you use them, be careful and do not underestimate the symptoms: severe flu, aching muscles, stomach
cramps, head and neck pain, a sudden rise in body temperature above 39 °C, diarrhoea and vomiting, sudden
drops in pressure and rapid heartbeat, often accompanied by a feeling of weakness, dizziness, a rash (this
may occur on various parts of the body or just in specific places such as the armpit or groin area).
Unlike pads and tampons, the cup is made of a material that is designed to be inserted into the body and
does not cause any health complications and has been used in healthcare for 60 years. Thanks to its material,
the cup does not change the pH of the vagina, does not dry out, does not risk allergies and does not support
the growth of bacteria like a tampon. The risk of toxic shock syndrome (TSS) is significantly lower with
the cup than with the tampon, but it still exists.
If you have previously been diagnosed with toxic shock syndrome, then do not use any internal vaginal
devices or the YUUKI cup.
