Dear BeingGirl Experts,
Can I sleep with a tampon in when I'm getting my period?
Need to Know
Dear Need to Know,
I'm not exactly sure what you're asking. If you are wondering if you can wear a tampon to bed if you THINK you're getting your period that night, the answer is no. Never wear a tampon unless you are actually menstruating.
If you're asking if you can wear a tampon at night when you HAVE your period, the answer is yes! You may use a tampon during menstruation while sleeping if you sleep less than eight hours. But, remember: A tampon needs to be changed every eight hours. So if you sleep more than eight hours, you should set an alarm to wake up and change your tampon, or else you should sleep with a pad.
Hope that clears things up!
