  • For starters, you should NOT be using a tampon yet - I've been told that after all of my babies, even though I knew not to. My cramps are worse even not pp when I use one. Also, if you haven't called your doctor yet, you need to - I really think it's normal, if you'd just stop using tampons. My first ones were always hellish.

  • Call your doctor!! I had severe pain and come to find out it was an E.Coli infection in my uterus from having my baby. Don't mess around if you're in that much pain.
