  • Ask your doctor, usually if your doctor has okayed you for sex, you are okay for tampons. I started using them about 12 weeks postpartum about the same as you.

  • I started wearing them with my very 1st period after the initial 6 weeks after having him. So I'd say I was somewhere around 9 or 10 weeks PP.

  • I was OKd to use them at 2 weeks (I had a C-section) but didn't actually start until my first period, 6 weeks later.
