do you change you tampon every time you pee or even before you pee?

my friend said she really had to pee but couldn't cause she didn't have another tampon. I was like okay but just go. I guess she changes every time she pee's?

  • I usually just leave mine in. And I'm not trying to be mean but taking it out and putting it back in is gross. And I think if it falls out when you pee, you're not putting them in right. Mine NEVER fall out when I pee!

  • I agree with josie, it is really uncomfortable and sometimes painful to pull them out if they are dry!

    I wait until either they NEED to be changed, or my 8 hours is up, whichever comes first.

  • If it falls out, you either need bigger ones or it was time to change it anyway.

  • urine absorbes in the string and then enters where you don't want it entering... so yes, I take out the tampon every time I pee! Wet tampon cord is just TOO FReaking gross ya'll!

  • Always change mine. I take it out before i pee, unless I cant hold it, then I wait till I'm done.
