168. that's actually not true. It use to be bad but it's not anymore. As long as you change it regularly your chances of getting TS are slim to none.

It must be nice not having to sleep with a tampon on at night. I need both pads and tampons throughout the week or it'll be a bloody morning.

...sometimes I wonder why some people just seem to be unable to keep a relationship. I guess I now know the reason. OP, you wake up because he played with that string? What the hell was he doing then? Pulling it out and sticking the whole thing back in?

you can also get hit by a car by crossing the street... should we avoid that too? there's nothing wrong with sleeping in a tampon. biology 101 retake it.

@#83 it depends how long you keep it in, 'idiot'. if you're having a nap or sleeping for less than 9 hours, it's pretty safe as long as you practice good hygiene.

you can sleep with a tampon in you just cant leave it in more than 8 hrs but I'd watch leaving it in too long if your flows real heavy.

90- No, actually, it isn't safe. Good hygene helps to some extent, but a lot of the time it isn't enough. You should change your tampon every couple of hours. Keeping it in for an extensive amount of time (4-8 hours) is unsafe.

Biology 101? How about having B.S in Biology with plenty of microbiology experience and being a med student? It is NOT safe to sleep with tampon in. WHY on Earth would you want dead tissue to be stuck there for the whole NIGHT? If she's bleeding so much she can't wear pads because they would leak, it's an extra safety concern because there is even more dead tissue than average there. If she is not a heavy bleeder, she can wear a pad fine without staining anything. There is a reason menstrual bl

172 - I don't bleed all that heavily, but pads are EXTREMELY uncomfortable in my opinion, and I sleep with a tampon in every night that I'm on my period. There is always the risk of TSS, but, like zowie said, there's always the risk of getting hit by a car when crossing the street, too. I'm gonna go ahead and say that the advice from my gynocologist is pretty reliable, and for the 6 to 8 hours of sleep I get at night, it's not that big of a deal.

104: Thanks for lightening the mood. Your comment made me lol. 172: If my obgyn who spent about 8 more years in school and studies a particular focused part of the body and focuses on issues like this says it's ok and the box says change every 4-6 hours or whatever and I'm doing that WTF does it matter whether or not I'm sleeping? You're going to bleed less anyway when you're sleeping. Btw, trying to throw out your BS degree is not impressive.

172- I sleep with a tampon in every night that I'm on my period. It's too heavy not to, I even have to wear a pad at the same time (not just at night, everyday i'm on my period.) it's not unhealthy to have a heavy menstrual cycle, some of us just have crappy luck.
