Toxic Shock Syndrome and Proper Usage of Menstrual Products

There is a constant line of advertisements and media engagement when it comes to the promotion of numerous menstrual products.

Through this immediate and unstoppable supply and trend for these products, how is one to choose and more importantly how is one not supposed to do harm to herself while using these? This is a question of significance since in a country like India where periods are a taboo, improper disposition regarding the products can cause a lot more damage than which can be anticipated.
