Wearing a tampon when not on your period is unhealthy and unnecessary. The tampon is good place for bacteria to grow and may cause an infection that can enter the blood stream and kill you. Every tampon box warns about TSS (Toxic Shock Syndrom) which you can only get if you leave your tampon in for more than 8 hours
