Correlation of behaviors with microbiological changes in vaginal flora. (1/43)

Bacterial vaginosis (BV) is characterized by dramatic changes in the vaginal ecosystem. Women without evidence of vaginal infection may exhibit transient changes in their flora. We prospectively followed up women by using diaries and self-obtained vaginal smears to correlate behaviors with changes in flora. The majority of women (38/51, 78%) had significant, although transient, changes. Behaviors associated with unstable flora were a history of BV, a greater number of partners, and more frequent episodes of receptive oral sex. Only the latter remained significantly associated in the multivariate analysis. Variables that were associated with day-to-day variability in the flora included use of vaginal medication, menses, greater number of partners, spermicide use, more frequent vaginal intercourse, and less frequent use of condoms. Only a minority of women (11/51, 22%) maintained a "normal" lactobacillus-predominant flora. Factors associated with instability of the flora are similar to those epidemiologically associated with BV.  (+info)

Medical devices; labeling for menstrual tampon for the "ultra" absorbency. Food and Drug Administration, HHS. Final rule. (3/43)

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is issuing a final rule that amends its menstrual tampon labeling regulation to add the term "ultra" absorbency for tampons that absorb 15 to 18 grams (g) of fluid with the syngyna test. At present, FDA requires standardized terms to be used for the labeling of a menstrual tampon to indicate its particular absorbency. This rule enables consumers to compare the absorbency of one brand and style of tampon with the absorbency of other brands and styles. FDA is issuing this final rule under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the act) to ensure that labeling of menstrual tampons is not misleading. Elsewhere in this issue of the Federal Register, FDA is proposing to change the standardized menstrual tampon term "junior" to "light".  (+info)

Site-specific prevalence and cell densities of selected microbes in the lower reproductive tract of menstruating tampon users. (4/43)

OBJECTIVE: To assess differences in prevalence and cell densities of enterococci, Gram negative enterics (GNEs), yeast and Staphylococcus aureus among four genital sites and to examine whether the presence of organisms at one site affected the presence of organisms at other sites. METHODS: Swab samples from the perineum, below and above the hymen, and the posterior fornix obtained from 52 tampon users on menstrual cycle day 3 were analyzed for site-specific prevalence and cell densities of microorganisms. RESULTS: Enterococci and GNEs were the most prevalent study organisms at all sites and decreased in prevalence from the perineum to the posterior fornix. Cell densities similarly decreased from below the hymen to the posterior fornix. Yeast were detected at the hymen only; S. aureus frequency was similarly low at all sites. Yeast and S. aureus site-specific cell densities were similar. The above- and below-hymen sites were similar in prevalence and cell density of organisms. An above-chance association existed between the presence of any study organism below the hymen and above the hymen and was strongest for GNEs. CONCLUSIONS: The pattern of genital colonization with enterococci and GNEs reflects their likely gastrointestinal source. The absence of significant differences in the prevalence and cell densities of study microflora above and below the hymen combined with an above-chance association of the presence of microorganisms at these regions suggests that the regions above and below the hymen are not different with respect to the presence of the organisms evaluated in this study.  (+info)

Detection of Staphylococcus aureus biofilm on tampons and menses components. (5/43)

Culturing has detected vaginal Staphylococcus aureus in 10%-20% of women. Because growth mode can affect virulence expression, this study examined S. aureus-biofilm occurrence in 44 paired-tampon and vaginal-wash-specimens from 18 prescreened women, using fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH). All 44 specimens were also analyzed for S. aureus by standard culturing on mannitol salt agar, which produced positive results for 15 of the 44 specimens. FISH detected S. aureus cells in all 44 specimens, and S. aureus biofilm was observed in 37 of the 44 specimens. Independent confirmation of the presence of S. aureus in specimens from all 18 women was also obtained by amplification, via polymerase chain reaction, of an S. aureus-specific nuclease gene. The results of this study demonstrate that S. aureus biofilm can form on tampons and menses components in vivo. Additionally, the prevalence of vaginal S. aureus carriage may be more prevalent than what is currently demonstrated by standard culturing techniques.  (+info)

Clinical safety-in-use study of a new tampon design. (6/43)

OBJECTIVE: To confirm the safety of a new experimental Tampax tampon and applicator compared with that of a currently marketed Tampax tampon and applicator using comprehensive gynecological and microbiological assessments. METHODS: A 2-month, single-blind, randomized, crossover study was conducted in which each subject served as her own control. Safety was evaluated by comparing potential product-related irritation (using colposcopic examination and subject diary data), assessment of vaginal discharge, vaginal pH, and effects on selected microorganisms (yeast, Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus and group B streptococci) obtained by vaginal swab cultures after normal menstrual use in the experimental and control groups. RESULTS: In total, 110 women completed the study. There were no significant differences between the groups that used either the experimental or control tampon with regard to prevalence or mean cell density for the selected microorganisms. No differences were observed in the incidence or severity of erythema, in abrasion or ulceration of the cervix, vagina, introitus, vulva or perineum, or in mean vaginal pH and discharge assessments. There were equivalent low incidences of reported symptoms such as discomfort during insertion, wear or removal, and a similar low incidence of burning, stinging or itching during use of either the control or experimental tampon. There was a more favorable overall product rating for the experimental tampon (p = 0.003). CONCLUSIONS: This approach provides a combination of gynecological, microbiological and self-reported (diary recall) methodologies in order to assess tampon safety during use more thoroughly than has previously been reported, and it supports a comparable safety profile for the experimental tampon and a currently marketed tampon.  (+info)

Factors affecting the detection rate of human papillomavirus. (7/43)

BACKGROUND: Maximizing the accuracy of human papillomavirus (HPV) detection from a single sample is important for clinical and research purposes. The purpose of this study was to determine whether cyclic hormonal variation, recent sexual intercourse, interval between samplings, and the technique used to sample affect the detection of HPV. METHODS: This study was a prospective, longitudinal, randomized controlled trial. Three techniques for self-sampling (2 consecutive synthetic polyester fiber [Dacron] swabs, a single Dacron swab, and a tampon) were repeated at 3 different sampling times during a period of 4 to 6 weeks in addition to 1 clinician-directed sampling of the ectocervix and endocervix at the first sampling time. All self-samplings were taken in a proscribed randomized order. Women (aged 18 to 68 years) attending a colposcopy clinic for abnormal cytology or abnormal cervical appearance participated in the study. The outcome measure was the detection of HPV by polymerase chain reaction amplification. RESULTS: The 103 participants provided 1,189 cervicovaginal samplings. Logistic regression indicated that intercourse within 48 hours of sampling did not result in a greater detection of high-risk or any HPV type (odds ratio [OR] = 1.05, 95% confidence interval [CI], 0.65-1.69; OR = 1.08, 95% CI, 0.73-1.60, respectively). Among those women who have regular menstrual cycles, there was no cyclic effect on HPV detection for high-risk and any HPV types. Time from previous sampling did not affect HPV detection. Among the self-sampling techniques, using a single self-swab and the tampon resulted in the detection of HPV between 10% and 35% less often than using 2 consecutive swabs (P < .025). Self-sampling with 2 swabs was not significantly different from clinician sampling for detecting high-risk HPV types (OR for self-sampling = 0.87 (95% CI, 0.66-1.13)). CONCLUSIONS: HPV detection is not dependent on menstrual cycle timings, the recency of intercourse, or the time between samplings, but it is dependent on the sampling technique.  (+info)

Medical devices; labeling for menstrual tampons; ranges of absorbency, change from "junior" to "light." Final rule. (8/43)

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is issuing a final rule that amends its menstrual tampon labeling regulation to change the current term for tampons that absorb 6 grams (g) and under of fluid. A tampon with absorbency of 6 g or less is currently required to be labeled as "junior". FDA is changing the term "junior" to "light". The term "junior" implies that the tampon is only for younger or teenage women when, in fact, it may be appropriate for women of any age with light menstrual flow. FDA encourages women to use the lowest absorbency tampon appropriate for their flow to help minimize the risk of Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS). At present, FDA requires standardized terms to be used for the labeling of a menstrual tampon to indicate its particular absorbency. This rule enables women to compare the absorbency of one brand and style of tampons with the absorbency of other brands and styles. FDA is issuing this final rule under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the act) to ensure that labeling of menstrual tampons is not misleading.  (+info)

misc{8569178, abstract = {The two most popular menstrual products, tampon and menstrual pads are challenged by a product that is on the rise; the menstrual cup. How do the menstrual cup users differ from the other users? Do menstrual cup users have a more positive feeling towards menstruation? The results from a survey about menstruation that collected over 3000 answers are used to answer this. Users of three different menstrual products, menstrual cup, menstrual pad and tampon are analysed depending on their feeling towards menstruation, their age and their education. Multinomial and binomial logistic regression models are used, and different versions of the models are compared and assessed with cross validation. The menstrual pad and tampon users are very similar to each other but the menstrual cup users differ and are found to have a more positive feeling towards menstruation. The sample is however non-representative and the results should not be used to draw conclusions about the main ...

Most women know that leaving a tampon in for too long is a no-no, and the reason is that it turns into a bacteria super-highway directly into the uterus - which is a quick and easy way to get pelvic inflammatory disease, and be ushered off to the hospital. Barring this uncommon occurrence, tampon use may seem rather benign and harmless, but you may not know that not much has changed in the conventional tampon manufacturing industry since the 1970s and 1980s when certain brands were pulled off the shelves due to contamination with cancer-causing agents. In fact, over 50 women died in the United States in the 1970s from toxic exposure from tampon use - a little known bit of history. Of course, its rare that these effects are immediate, but the contamination of modern tampons is still prevalent, and is no different than the toxic chemicals that we all try to avoid in our food, cookware, clothing, and beauty products.. ...
A menstrual cup is exactly what it seems like a flexible cup that females can put right into their vaginal areas in order to gather their menstrual circulation.

I am using tampons right now, but I would like to try a menstrual cup. Do they work as well as tampons? This patient query is becoming more common. Menstrual cups are flexible, reusable cups made of rubber or silicone that are worn intravaginally to collect menstrual flow.1 Interest in their use is increasing, largely because of public desire for more environmentally friendly menstrual products.2. Studies on tampons show that they are well tolerated.3,4 There is no conclusive evidence that tampons substantially affect rates of vaginitis or urinary tract infection (UTI).5-10 Independent research in the 1980s found toxic shock syndrome to be associated with high absorbency tampons and the aerobic production of Staphylococcus aureus, which led to a change in tampon composition and instructions for use.11-15. The first studies on menstrual cups done in the 1960s showed that they were also well tolerated, with most women becoming comfortable with use after a 1- to 2-month adjustment period.16-19 A ...

QUESTION: Can you use a menstrual cup (MC) when you are also using an Intra-Uterine Device (IUD)?. EVIDENCE ON IUD EXPULSION. IUDs are one of the most widely used means of contraception, but the proportion of women who use IUDs ranges widely (ESHRE 2008). The most recent estimates from the United Nations are that around 0.9% of women* in Uganda are using IUDs, in Denmark rates are higher, with the most recent UN estimate at 23.9% (UN 2018)**. IUDs can be unintentionally expelled (partially or completely)***, or intentionally removed by either a health provider or the woman herself (Foster, et al. 2014). Intentional removal rates can be substantial, with one estimate from the US at 10% after one year and 50% after 5 years, either because women want to become pregnant, or due to pain or menstrual irregularity (ESHRE 2008). Here we refer to unintentional expulsion. Expulsion does not cause harm to women, however, unintentional expulsion means the woman needs to replace her contraceptive method, to ...

Disposable inserts used internally (tampons) first appeared in the United States in the 1930s and the first Tampax dates back to 1936. It was only in 1951 that tampons first arrived in France and disposable sanitary towels first appeared in 1960.. In 1980, the first sanitary health alert concerning tampons was made public: toxic shock syndrome (TSS), a rare disease, but a serious and sometimes lethal one, caused by toxins and the increase in golden staphylococcus. This disease has been linked to the use of tampons even though they are not the only cause. This therefore led the tampon manufacturers to indicate various precautions for tampon use, such as the fact that a tampon should not be used for longer than 8 hours… 8 hours is already far too long.. In 1995, the second health warning was made public, this time in relation to dioxins: the chlorine bleaching process leaves traces ofpotentially carcinogenic dioxins in the tampons and sanitary towels. The various disposable tampons and sanitary ...

Attn: Giveaway at the bottom of this post!. Tampons and menstrual pads are the go-to products for most women. They are what you see sold in traditional stores and what you see advertised in TV commercials and magazine ads. They are far from the only options women have though. Hopefully by now you have also heard of some of the alternatives…cloth pads, natural tampons (sponges), and of course menstrual cups.. Lets start off by saying that this product was not my first rodeo with menstrual cups. I have been using them for years. I have tried several different brands and have been happy with all them. Last month though was my first time using the Sckoon cup brand. Before that I used to purchase their cloth diapers and baby clothes…though that was some time ago.. A menstrual cup does what a tampon or pad does but rather than absorb the flow it collects it. It IS a cup. If you are not squeamish about inserting a tampon then you should not be squeamish about inserting a cup. It is basically the ...

With regards to route of administration, drug interactions and predictability of bioactivity, the new oral anticoagulants (NOACs; direct factor Xa and IIa inhibitors) offer significant advantages over heparins and warfarin therapies. However, concern over serious bleeding, emergency procedures and potential over-dosage is heightened with the current lack of a specific reversal agent. PER977 is a synthetic small molecule rationally designed anticoagulant antidote. Reversal of anticoagulation induced bleeding was demonstrated in a rat tail transection model: weight-matched rats were overdosed with rivaroxaban, edoxaban, dabigatran, or apixaban, resulting in large increases in blood loss volume. PER977 was administered IV and after thirty minutes, blood loss volume was quantified. PER977 significantly decreased bleeding in vivo in rats treated with NOAC (Figure 1a).

When using tampons, your goal should be to use the lowest absorbency that allows you to avoid leaks and remove the tampon comfortably after 4-8 hours of use. Your flow changes from day to day, and many brands offer multiple absorbencies to mix and match (some even offer a multipack) to make choosing the optimal size for your flow easier. If you leak or spot, go up a size, and if the tampon is hard to remove, go down an absorbency. This guidance is key to not only making your tampon more comfortable and eliminating leaks, but also in helping you minimize the risk of the rare but serious disease, toxic shock syndrome (TSS). Even though the annual incidence rate of TSS in women of menstrual age in the United States is very low at about one case per 100,000 women, all women using tampons need to make sure they understand the information in the package insert and the signs and symptoms of TSS. This includes ALL tampons regardless of composition or absorbency ...
Background and Aims: Tranexamic acid has been used to decrease blood loss volumes and the subsequent need for blood transfusion in the orthopedic, spinal and cardiac surgeries. Methods: In this prospective controlled randomized clinical trial study, 24 candidates for orthognathic surgeries received tranexamic acid (20 mg/kg) intravenously just before the surgery while matched control patients received normal saline. The patients underwent the surgeries according to the standard protocol. Patients blood hemoglobin and hematocrit levels were calculated before and after the surgeries and blood loss volumes were calculated using these criteria. Results: The blood loss was estimated as 693.65 ± 81.24 and 1024.00 ± 75.41 ml regarding blood hemoglobin values before and after the surgery in intervention and control groups, respectively; while it was estimated as 660.93 ± 62.78 and 1052.00 ± 48.54 ml concerning patients blood hematocrit levels before and after the surgery in those groups, respectively.

A shortened tampon applicator of the telescoping tube type employs an ejector tube to store a tampon in its distal end and an outer tube disposed by a slip fit thereover to thus shorten the overall length of the tampon and applicator assembly. Directionally-locking inward flaps fixed within the distal end of said outer tube engage the distal end of the tampon stored in the ejector tube thus securing the latter relative to said outer tube while permitting only distal expulsion therefrom. The ejector tube preferably has inwardly biased flexible portions at its distal end which serve to catch behind the proximal end of the tampon. In the preferred version, the inwardly biased portions are unique undulations at the blunt distal end of the ejector tube.

Description:. For five years I suffered through infertility and I have since been looking for all possible reasons on why I suffered so long and why I developed endometriosis. To help answer some of my specific questions regarding the dangers of tampons, I spoke with Dr. Philip M. Tierno, Jr.: Director of Clinical Microbiology and Diagnostic Immunology at Tisch Hospital, New York University Medical Centre. He is an expert on the dangers of tampons. Here is some information I collected from speaking with Dr. Tierno:. 1. Alicia: How do tampons cause toxic shock syndrome (TSS)? Dr. Tierno: The material in the tampon can produce Staphylococcus aureus bacteria and this leads to toxic shock. Note: If these bacteria are not destroyed by the antibodies in our bloodstream then TSS can occur. Some symptoms are: Sudden fever (102 F or more) and vomiting, diarrhoea, fainting or near fainting when standing up, dizziness, and a rash that looks like a sunburn.. 2. Alicia: Is it true there is a rise in ...

This was the turning point in Soumyas life and she knew she had to do something. She learned that 88% of the women in India did not use sanitary napkins and resorted to unhygienic ways of managing their periods including the use of ash, husks and old rags that lead to reproductive tract infections or urinary tract infections in many cases. Of the 12% of women in India who do use commercial sanitary napkins, these napkins produced 9000 tonnes of sanitary waste per year. To put it in perspective, thats roughly the weight of the Washington Monument! After months of research and hard work, Soumya developed the first pad prototype that was hand-stitched and made of recyclable materials. The prototype had to go many iterations, but she finally developed one that is environmentally sustainable and culturally appropriate. The pad also aims to improve the menstrual health and hygiene practices employed by girls and women and make them period positive ...

Ladies, I want to let you in on a little secret: I actually dont mind getting my period. I know, it sounds kinda crazy but let me explain why. My feelings around that time of the month shifted drastically in 2009 when I began using a menstrual cup instead of disposable tampons and pads. Though it took some getting used to, within a cycle or two of using a cup I practically forgot I was on my period! I say practically because I still have the usual day or two of cramps, bloating and mood shifts, but the flow part of the cycle became a breeze. And bonus: its really nice not having to buy and throw out tampons and pads every month, which saves money and the environment.. ...

Many questions have come up recently about why my focus is on Australia, when there are so many places that appear worse off than we are that I could be focussing my attention on. You may have seen the recent media coverage (Huffpost, Upworthy and the likes) about the great stuff happening with menstrual cups in Africa. These posts get so much attention not only because they are in popular media, but because they give the reader that feel good sensation that there are people doing worse than them, and that someone is out there helping them. However, I feel that here in Australia, in the area of menstruation and womens knowledge of our own bodies, we are actually doing pretty abysmally.. Most women I speak to (who havent used a cup) dont even know what their cervix is, let alone how to find it.
