Dear BeingGirl Experts,
Do you get your period overnight? If so, do you have to wear a pad or tampon overnight?
You can start to menstruate any time of the day our night. Also, know you can have flow throughout 24 hours. Most girls have their periods during the night. Since it's a gravity drip, you may be lighter while sleeping. However, many girls experience a heavy period when sleeping, so there's no rule. You'll learn from your own experience what to expect. As tampons must be changed every 4–8 hours, consider using a pad if you routinely sleep longer than 8 hours.
Hope this helps,
Your BeingGirl Experts
