About the Vagina: You are obviously here so as to learn one or two things about the female Vagina right? If yes, keep calm, relax and read these posts as we can definitely guarantee, you shall be educated!
1.The first time you saw a speculum, your heart may have leapt out of your chest.
If you get nervous any time you think about this, it might be helpful to learn what’s actually going on during a Pap smear. At least then you’ll know what to expect once your feet are in the stirrups.
2.You heard one horror story about toxic shock syndrome (TSS) as a teen and you were never able to get it out of your head.
Don’t worry, gynecologists say it’s safe to sleep with a tampon in overnight — just use the least absorbent tampon you can, and don’t forget about it.
Plus, TSS is actually very rare (when it was most prevalent, in 1980, the rate was 6-12 per 100,000 menstruating women, but by 1986 it dropped to 1 in 100,000 menstruating women). Still, it’s a life-threatening complication of a bacterial infection (usually Staphylococcus aureus or group A streptococcus) with symptoms like a high fever, vomiting, and a rash — so it makes sense to be terrified of it.
