have you been in for your 6 week check? you should wait until you have been back to the doctor.

I wasnt able to use tampons at that time. They didnt fit right...

I had to use pads for a couple months until my vagina returned to normal where I could use a tampon. I would talk to your dr first... and if he gives you the clearance, then try one. If it doesnt fit right, you will know it!!

You should have been cleared for that at your 6 week appointment.  If you weren't told anything about it specifically at that appointment, I'm sure it's fine.  If you havent' had your 6 week appointment, you should have it first and be cleared there.

Like some others have said, I'd wait until my 6 week PP checkup to be cleared.

 I didnt use tampons for 4 months after I had my daughter and I also had a c section.

I'd wait to see your OB at ur 6 week appt - but if you've already been and you feel comfortable using them I'd do it.

I wouldnt. I'm almost 5 months postpartum and I still cant wear them. So uncomfortable.
