Tampon question.

Does anyone else's tampons not fit as well now that they've had a baby? Mine doesn't seem to want to stay in anymore. Is it just me?

  • I've stopped using them since having the kids because they didn't seem to go in right anymore.

  • you should maybe try a different size.

    i cant wear tampons at all.. so i never had this problem :(

    but thats the only thing i can think of, that you probably need a different size

  • I never wore tampons. But then I tried and it did not fit right. But then after 12 and 1/2 years of not having children and losing a lot of weight, it fits. It is possible.

  • Maybe Kegal excercises would help. I had a c-section, so I dunno.

  • i have no problem getting them to stay in. Kegal exercises should help, like pp suggested. I would think that the absorbency is too low if it comes out. I don't know.

  • I can't wear them either... they just don't feel comfortable. Kegals don't help either, I do those all the time, lol!

  • It depends for me. Sometimes they are really uncomfortable and other times I forget I have one in. I hate it. Before I had kids I never noticed them but now everyonce in a while I just want to scream.

  • this is weird reading this. i have never heard of this happening before and i have had a few kids. i rarely get them slipping out but that is or thought cause i didn't put it in deep enough. so i change it out and then it works.
