What are the symptoms of toxic shock syndrome?
Yes, it could be Toxic shock syndrome.
Thanks for consulting us.
Although you can have these symptoms because of your sore throat, some viral or bacterial infection but still you are at risk of Toxic shock syndrome on the basis of your history.
I think you should report to the hospital as your fever is high grade & share that tampon issue to your doctor, so that they can do necessary tests to exclude this possibility.
I don't think it would be enough to take Amoxicillin & pain killers without knowing the route cause, specially if this has failed to bring your fever down. It could turn serious if not dealt properly.
Hope you get well soon.
No, plan B is not a likely cause.
Thanks for your question & very sorry for a late reply.
Plan B may cause stomach upset & heavy early bleeding but high grade fever is not a known side effect.
I didn't say that you have toxic shock syndrome, but, it is an important diagnosis that need to be kept in mind while investigating your fever. In other words, we must rule out this possibility before taking it as an ordinary respiratory tract infection.
Hope I am clear this time.
Wish you good health & all the best.
My period is still going now but it is on brown whenever I wipe. I assume Plan B extended my period. I'm curious to when it'll end. I also want to know how soon I can take a pregnancy test because I read you can gave tubal pregnancy or still be pregnant after a period.
You may take a blood pregnancy test now.
Thanks for your question & you are welcome with all your future queries.
This is good to know that you are getting better & no fever now.
Yes, Plan B may cause heavy bleeding which usually lasts 7-10 days.
If you have doubts about tubal pregnancy (probably because of your stomach pains), you may take a pregnancy test now. If you want to exclude pregnancy with 100% surety, opt for a blood pregnancy test.
Hope I have given you the desired response. Please contact back if you want to discuss this further.
Hope you get well soon.
