  • You can but it is not good at all. For your body, your nerves or your vagina. tampon makers recommend that you do NOT sleep with them in at night, that they are for wear during the day.

  • You're not suppose to use one longer than I believe 8 hours, but I sleep with them in every month.

  • I do. I always get up to pee, and I change it. Every now and then I will use a pad, just for a break, but not often, cause I hate the mess. :[
