Are there any negative side-effects to leaving in a wet tampon for any length of time? I'm talking about water wetness, as in from swimming or bathing, not bloody wetness.
Occassionally, I'll put in a tampon an hour or so before I jump in the shower. Generally, I don't like to take tampons out that soon after inserting them, as they tend to be pretty dry and pulling them out so soon is uncomfortable, so I just shower with one in. (The feel of cotton squicks me out, but that's another issue altogether, lol.) So, when I get out of the shower, the string is of course wet, and sometimes the tampon itself is a little soggy (not like it's squishing water all down my leg, just damp). Still, I hate to waste them, so I generally just leave it alone until it's time to change it. I've never really had a problem with it, but I got to wondering today if I should be more careful for any reason. Not really sure why, just curious I guess.
Any info/experiences y'all wanna share? Thanks!
