Post pardum question ( a little TMI)

I am 4 weeks post pardum and havent bled in 1 week. I feel as though I am about to get my period, can I use tampons yet since I have already stopped bleeding?

  • i am 2 weekspost partum and i know the doc told me nothing for 6 weeks but you may be different maybe you should give your doc a call and ask just to be sure because i know after having a baby you are more susceptible to infection always better to be safe than sorry

  • I've had two and two different docs. They both told me no tampons (or sex or anything else up there) until at least the 6 week check.

  • Nothing in the vagina for 6 weeks (that includes penises and tampons).
