A question about tampons... this is the only place anywhere i can say that!!

Ok, so I haven't had a period in two years and THEY SUCK. When tampons say not to use for more than 8 hours, are they talking about the same tampon? Can I use two in a day? Stupid question I know.

  • Each one should be worn no more than 8 hours, you can use as many as you need.

  • Ha ha. Yes, you're to change your tampon (or pad) regularly to avoid bacterial growth.

  • LOL yeah it's just telling you not to keep the SAME tampon in for more than 8 hours. I never wear pads, I HATE them. So much messier and smellier. As long as you're changing your plug out regularly, you can wear them all day long ;)

  • Yeah just changing them within 8 hours is to avoid infections, but you can use as many as you need for your period, I hate pads and use tampons until the very end.
