My doctor is male so I am a little too embarrassed to ask him this question.
I've delivered two large babies, but my body was built for it--minor stitches after both deliveries, like maybe 2-3. Healed quickly in both cases. Healed from all the D&?Cs, too.
Here is my very embarrassing question:
Were you able to use tampons after childbirth?
I'm finding that I cannot use them at all! They either fall out (cry) or they are so uncomfortable that I remove them immediately. There is nothing wrong with me--I'm not all stretched out or anything like that! hehe

Yes, I still use tampons after our two kids, but I have heard that they might be part of the reason why I cramp so bad, so I'm thinking of switching to a menstrual cup. Our Walgreen's just got the disposable ones, which is good, because no way was I going to get fitted for one.

Oops, forgot to add that you might want to try Kegel exercises to strengthen your vaginal walls, that might help them stay in better.

CraftingMama: From what I understood you needed to be fitted for one like a diaphragm, is this not the case?
