Tampons???

Posted by on Aug. 7, 2010 at 10:18 PM

Does your cervix change shapes after pregnancy? I used to be able to use tampons just fine, even after DD #1 was born. Ever since DD #2 was born (2 years ago) I can't wear them anymore. They don't fit right, fall out....etc....

Why??

I uses to use Playtex sport before DD#2 and love them, but (obviously) can't use them now. Just tonight, I decided to try the gentle glide - I got it in, but still feel weird. Like it's going to fall out if I sneeze.

If you are having a problem with your tampons and keeping them in properly or comfortably now then you should ask you ob/gyn about it. He/she may be able to tell you what's going on and if there is anything you can do, such as using a particular brand. They may even be able to give you a clue to why this is happening. Good luck!

 I have had issues too with tampons since I had my son 4 yrs ago. I just can't get them comfortable, like I am putting it in wrong. IDK, they're just uncomfortable and before ds that was all I used.

 I have the same problem!! I thought it was just me! Ever since I had my daughter 3 years ago, tampons dont fit right. I have to use pads. Which I hate! I can get them in, but like you said, it feels like they are gonna fall out if I cough or sneeze, lol.

Is it possible that your pelvic floor muscles have dropped? If you didn't work on your kegels, this can happen during pregnancy or after child birth. Myabe the tampon is just sitting low now because everything is sitting lower...

 Try O.B.   they work great, and you flare the bottom w/ the string, so it doesn't feel like it's gonna fall out, OR fall out.

It does change shapes.  It gets bigger like when your hips get bigger also sorry to tell you this.  Sometimes the hips will get bigger.
