Sleepover while on period...

Question Posted Saturday June 17 2006, 4:22 pm

Hey I'm going to a party and my period is still irregualr so theres a very good chance that I'll be on it during the party/sleepover because in May I had it from the 23-30th or somrething like that so I'm expecting to have for the sleepover. And I'm kinda scared to wear a tampon to sleep because I don't want to get TTS but I know a ton of people who do. So like I'm not totally sure what to do. I mean if ther is a way to wear a tampon I will but I just don't know weather to not sleep over (but I don't really have a reason not the besided that one), wear a pad, or tampon. So any advice will we great.

The chances of contracting Toxic Shock Syndrome aren't terribly high, but it is always best to exercise caution and not where them when you go to bed.

Having been in this sort of position myself before, the best recommendation I can make is to make sure you wear a pair of pyjamas and a dressing gown. Wear pads, rather than tampons. When you get there, find a reason to disappear to the loo and check to make sure there is a bin in the toilet (something that has caught me out in the past!). If there is a bin, you will be okay. Up til you get changed into your pj's, it will be a lot easier because you can take a small handbag or something in with you.

After you change into pj's, when you need to change your pads, make sure you are wearing a dressing gown with pockets. Discreetly slip a new pad into a pocket and slip up to the loo. If they don't have a bin, wrap the used one in loo roll and hide it in a pocket or the bottom of whatever bag you have brought in. Not a favourable option but by far the best one available if trying to be discreet while at a party.. If you are concerned about leakages during the night, wear a pair of hotpants under your pj bottoms when you go to bed and make sure you change right before you go to sleep.

Well first off its TSS not TTS
and only like every 1 out of ten girls get it
But if your really that worried about it you can just change the tampon every 4 to 6 hours its an all girls sleepover right? so its okay
I wouldnt recomend a pad because well its too gross and you have the possibility of leaking so a tampon would just be safferr

different tampons have different times. just look on the box
most of them are 4-6 hours though

hey, ive recently experienced this. except i got it right before the sleepover. just wear a tampon during the whole partyyy. but if everyones sorta dying down and gonna go to sleep change to a pad because a leak during the ngiht is totally embarrasing.

Well if it is a sleepover party there will probbaly be alot of people and you probably wont get much sleep. A tamon should be fune. Just make sure to change it right before bed and right when you wake up and you should be fine.

You should go to that sleepover!!!! Wearing a tampon to bed is perfectly fine, as long as you put a new one in when you guys go to sleep (if you do :) ) and a new one in when you wake up in the morning, and if you wake up in the middle of the night, i couldn't hurt to change it then too. Trust me, the girls who got TSS probably just didn't change their tampon enough, so that's why, as long as you change it regularly, you will be just fine! Have fun at the sleepover!

Alrighty i cant really tell you what to wear but when i go to a sleepover we usually dont get any sleep but like its going to be a bunch of girls and i think they will be understanding if you say your on your period i mean they have them to so like if you wanna were a tampon then wear one but if u wanna wear a pad wear that but like i wouldnt be to worried and you cant just not spend the night cause your on your period.... thats stupid ... just go have funn and dont worry about it to much and if they ask why you keep going to the bathroom just saay your on your period... i doubtr they will care=) Have Funn!!

I hope i helped

I wouldn't wear a tampon to sleep because who knows, you may be one of the unlucky few where something goes wrong. Overnight pads and sleeping on your side will do the trick. Depending on what time you go to sleep and how heavy your period is you may have to get up in the night and change it.

hope I helped

where a special 'sleeptime' pad.. it ids long enough so you wont get any one sheets.. try to sleep on you side, or put a towel under you... it helps.

it depends how late you all stay up... it you go to bed at like 2 am... set your phone alarm for 8 am and then go and change it real fast. i personally dont usually get a lot when i sleep... so you could wear a tampon then change to a pad right before you go to sleep. <3
