Health Care: One does not usually go to see the doctor for such questions. There are absolutely no medical reasons to interfere with your choice of personal hygiene products.

Yes: As long as you change tampons roughly every 4 to 6 hours. Ensure that you remove the tampon within 8 hours at the longest.
