Today, I woke up in a puddle of blood after 7 hours of sleep. Before going to bed, I had inserted a tampon that should've kept me dry for at least 8 hours. Apparently it doesn't work well if sleepy me forgets to take the top part of the plastic wrapping off. FML

I mean, so far as I'm aware, lots of women put other types of plastic objects inside themselves, so not sure it would be dramatically different....

You shouldn't be sleeping with one in.. are you trying to hurt yourself? sucks but you put it on yourself.

They're right actually actually, tampons should be changed every four hours and you should be using pads overnight to reduce the risk of toxic shock syndrome.

I also don't just rely on Tampons. I use them overnight only for the first two days which are generally the worst for me--but also wear a pad as well just in case.

You waterproofed your tampon! WHY?

Well, now you know how to protect your phone if you ever get drunk!

It’s like that for me too. Much, much less.

Yep, same here. The only plus to having an (apparently) tilted uterus.
But then when you first get out of bed in the morning? It's a speed waddle to the bathroom before everything that pooled overnight goes full Niagara Falls on you.

You’re not supposed to keep a tampon in longer than 4 hours. It can be very dangerous and lead to toxic shock.
