Do you ladies use pads for overnight sleep or tampons?

I know you can't leave a tampon too long inside you so I don't sleep with one I just use a pad but I still haven't found the right one that catches all the sides if it's not the back it's the front that made a tiny mess.

Which do you recommend...This is embarrassing but once I used a diaper while I slept..(this is when the anonymous button comes in It did the job but don't care for doing that everytime.
So far I tried Kotex overnight and man they are long it looks scary so far so good.

  • Tampons. I hate the pad being dislodged in my sleep and waking up to what looks like a crime scene where I sleep.

  • Kotex overnight is the best. They are so long though!but they catch everything so who Sometimes i use the OB super plus tampons and sleep with it in. I always get up in the middle of the night no matter what, so I just change it out then and I wear a long pantyliner with it. Good Luck :)

  • i hate the kotex overnights.. they are worthless and i wear 2 of them and i still leak.. i switched to stayfree overnight.. those are the bomb and i never leak with those and they neutralize odors and they have some sort of a fresh scent.. i like it coz its not over powering i hate tampons too i thin they are gross and they dont handle my flow.. stick with stayfree overnights

  • I only use tampons. But after I had my kids I used Always over nights and they were good. I didn't wake up to a mess.
