2 tampons at once , is it safe ?

My friend puts in 2 tampons at once. Not one after the other, but actually puts them both in at the same time, like side by side. I was wondering if that is healthy or even safe because to me, it doesn t sound safe.

No PLEASE TEL HER NO.She can get what is called toxic schock syndrome.It can kill you.It comes from wearing a tampon that is to big for to long.So if you wear a tampon that you don't fill up in 3-4 hours it is to big.This means you are less likely to change it because it is not full thus leaving it in to where bactriria can grow.If she is doing this so she doesn't change as often then she needs to stop and wear one that will fill within 3-4 hours.If she bleeds that much,she needs to see her Dr.But please tell her to stop.Look up TOXIC SHOCK SYNDROME online and read it to her.PLEASE!
