  • they say not to, but i did and nothing happened. I'm just not a big fan of pads though. so do whatever makes you feel comfortable

  • Have you had your 6 week check up yet? I not then no! You need to get the ok from your Dr first. If you aren't healed completely yet using a tampon will irritate you and cause the healing process to take much longer.

  • I don't even want to think about how it would feel if even a small part of it gets attached to tissue due to dried blood!
