Her legs are amputated after using a common household product – Now she’s warning women everywhere

A California woman named Lauren Wasser is sharing her life story in order to prevent other women to go through the ordeal she has gone through all because of a common product.

Back in 2012, this model went to the hospital because she experienced flu like symptoms that wouldn’t go away. Sadly, once doctors ran tests, they determined that it wasn’t flu that caused Lauren discomfort but toxic shock syndrome caused by bacterial toxins.

It was determined that the cause which led to the infection was a tampon. If left for long hours, tampons can cause this infection which leads to a toxic shock syndrome or TTS.

Sadly, Lauren was in coma for over a week and doctors were forced to amputate her leg because of the infection upon awakening. At the time, she was only 24 years old.

Ever since this tragic event, Lauren made it her goal to raise awareness and fighting a legal battle against Kotex Natural Balance, the brand of tampons that caused her to react so severely.

In a few months, I’m inevitably going to have my other leg amputated. There’s nothing I can do about it. But what I can do is help make sure that this doesn’t happen to others,” Lauren tells The Daily Mail.

“Considering that the vagina is the most absorbent part of a woman’s body and is a gateway to many of our vital organs, it is crucial that consumers know the reality of what could happen to them,” she writes in InStyle.
