Can you leave a tampon in all night?


Answers:    you can..but it states in the leaflet that a tampon should not be left inserted for more than eight hours due to the increased risk of toxic shock syndrome (tss).read the leaflet it is very informative or go to a tampon website such as...www.tampax.com
As long as you sleep for 6 hours only!
no -you are supposed to change a tampon around every 4-6 hours.. otherwise you risk getting Toxic shock syndrome.
The longer you keep it in the more at risk you are for toxic shock syndrome.
yes, for as long as you sleep. make sure you wash your hands thoroughly before and after changing tampons and store them somewhere besides the bathroom. use the lowest absorbancy you can.
The maximum time to leave in a tampon is 8 hours, so, yes you can leave it in overnight. Try not to leave it in any longer, because you put yourself at risk for Toxic Shock Syndrome.
i wouldn't leave one in all night. use a pad if you are going to sleep for less than 8hrs. you can develop toxic shock syndrome from leaving a tampon in for to long.

I wouldn't suggest leaving it in all night long. I believe the longest you can keep a tampon in is about 8 hours. I used a tampon at night but I made sure to set my alarm clock for 7 hours later to take it out. You can use a tampon at night time but just make sure you wake up 6-7 hours later to replace it with another one.
The box says you can,but I've never done it. I use a pad overnight to avoid increased risk of TSS.
I do it all the time. I guess if your worried about it then don't but i've never had any problems. I hate pads so I try my hardest to stay away from them.
I do all the time. I sleep for about 7-7 1/2 hours and change it as soon as I wake up. I've been doing this for a long time and never had any problems. Just be sure to set your alarm clock so you don't leave it in too long.
ony for 4-5 hours or else you could get very sick!
At night I wear a ultra thin always night pad in the orange wraper and a tampax compax super. otherwize i bleed alll over the place. gross right? it works fine
