For me, there's really nothing worse than getting my period. Though I know it's a totally natural part of life that I just can't skip, it's probably the most uncomfortable and annoying part of being a female. Not everyone may agree with that statement, but I just can't find a way to celebrate random leaking and horrible cramping. Although tampons are usually my first choice when it comes to my cycle, every since I found out the weird things that happen if you sleep with a tampon, I try to reserve my wearing of them to the daytime and when I know I'll have time to change them out as often as they need.
Since I'm always on the go, it's more convenient to travel with tampons, but I've found that the same thing is not applicable to sleeping in them. Every woman has experienced the shock and upset to waking up in the morning with a bit of dried blood on their sheets from leaking, but, according to Glamourwearing a tampon to bed increases the chances of leaking if you have a heavier flow. Not fun.
So while wearing a tampon to sleep is totally up to every woman's discretion, these three weird things could possibly help you steer clear of doing so.
