... I understand not using tampons at night during miconazole use because tampons absorb the miconazole. I understand that I can use miconazole during my period. I am using the 7 day cream inserted at bedtime. Is there any reason not to use tampons during the day? I ask because I have used tampons and panty shields only for over 30 years and my period just started (day 3 of 7 on miconazole) and I have never used anything else.
