Ok ladies so this way off topic but thought someone might be able to help... This may sound silly but bear with me, I have always worn tampons until the birth of my daughter 2 years ago via section since then I have had my son in dec of 09 and I have not worn a tampon since my daughter in 08... I will need to wear one tomarrow at the pool, just curious who has used them after a section and if there are any special precautions I should take.?.

With both my c-sections I started back up using tampons 2 weeks after my section.  What kind of pre cautions do you think you would need to take?  The only thing I can think would make sure to change it regularly but thats the same before or after having a c-section

Thank you, I know it seems silly but I just wanted to make sure, I am new to this area and don't have a new gyno yet... Thank you again for your help :o)

That far afterwards, no issues.  With my CS (had a vbac since), I was wearing one by my first period (3-4mo pp).
