If you have to change your pad or tampon more often than every 1-2 hours, or if your period lasts longer than a week, it may be a symptom of a hormonal imbalance, polyps, pelvic inflammatory disorder, or various women’s cancers. This is something you need to let your doctor know. Very severe cramps can also be indicative of a problem.
Leaving tampons in overnight.
Even if you only use tampons during the day, only use a pad at night, or if you’re not going to change your tampon for more than 8 hours. Leaving in your tampon for more than 8 hours can possibly result in TSS or Toxic Shock Syndrome. This bacterial infection is very rare, but since it can result in death, it’s always better to stay safe and use a pad at night.

Not wearing breathable clothing.
Wearing breathable cotton panties is very important to preventing yeast infections and similar problems. At the very least, the crotch part of your panties should be made of a breathable cotton material. Habitually wearing unbreathable fabrics, especially things like leather or PVC, can be very detrimental to the health of your honey pot.
