  • Yes unless you're scared to contract toxic shock syndrome.

  • mmmhmm. Toxic shock doesn't become an issue before 8 hours of use, and since most people don't sleep more than eight nowadays, it shouldn't be an issue. I can't sleep without one, it grosses me out and I worry about leaking.

  • yes... it does concern me though because when I have my period I take a LOT of meds to cope with the pain (narcotics, muscle relaxers, sedatives) and sleep much more than 8 hours. if it's really bad I'll wear my diva cup instead

  • yes... TSS is very rare, and generally occurs when there is instance of weakened immune system.

    I couldn't sleep without one- but I borderline hemorrhage, using Ultra Absorbency for first 18-36 hours, changing every couple of hours (sometimes hourly). I've been hospitalized for bleeding before. I don't sleep more than 3-4 hours when aunt flo is visiting any way. If you're that worried, set an alarm and change it.
