Is it OK to Wear the Same Pad All Night?

Do I Have to Change My Pad Overnight?

It all depends on your flow, but if you put on a fresh pad at bedtime, you probably will be OK until morning. For one thing, you're lying down so gravity is on your side!

Because it's best to change tampons every few hours, choose pads instead of tampons for overnight wear. Special overnight pads are available too. That way, you can be sure you're wearing one that's absorbent enough to get you through until the morning.
