Can I wear a tampon overnight ?

I hate, hate, HATE wearing pads overnight and my mom told me that lots of people wear tampons overnight, but they say you should never wear a tampon overnight because you could easily get TSS.

you can indeed. just put in a fresh one just before you lay down and change it as soon as you wake up. just be sure you have the right absorbency level. i.e.- light(skiny) for a small flow or super(thicker) for a heavy flow. TSS comes from leaving them in when they have fully expanded and your menstrual has nowhere else to flow. you put yourself at a higher risk as it kind of stay in you longer. hope that helped
