  • Probably not a good idea. Tampons can harbor bacteria, which could cause an infection that neither you or baby need.
    Your better to stick with panty liners. GL

  • why would you wear a tampon? its not going to help you with your pee problem as tampons go in the vagina and your pee comes out your urethra.

  • Tampons don't help with urine. Poise make thin pads for women that work great.

  • Wear pantyliner, tampons will do nothing for this problem.
