: The reason that tampons increase your risk is because they absorb all vaginal fluids (not only menstrual fluids) and change the fluid and ph balance of the vagina. The Keeper does absolutly nothing but catch menstrual fluid.
I've read that TSS was caused by sodium acrylate, a substance that used to be in tampons (apparently they've since removed it) but is in the gel that some disposable diapers have!
