After a planned C section can you wear tampons for the bleeding since your vajayjay has been left alone???

NO.  You still need to wear maxis.  It can cause infection even though you did not pass the baby through your vajayjay

You can start using them after you stop bleeding heavily.  Once it becomes lighter it is okay to use them.

true...I only bled heavily for a few days and stopped bleeding completely after a week and a half.  You do tend to bleed less and not as long with c-sections than with vaginal deliveries.

No you can't you have to wait until your 6 week checkup.... But if you have sex before your six week then i can't see why you couldn't use a tampon..  but i haven't even had a period sence my son was born, so i don't know and that was six weeks ago... An i only bleed for like a week..

You need to wear the maxis rather than tampons.  And I bled very heavily for nearly the full six weeks.  Plus, I know I wouldn't have wanted to use tampons, because I passed alot of large blood clots.  That stuff needs to come out, and a tampon will cause it to get stuck up there, rather than passing in the normal healthy way it's meant to.

Oh gosh no.  You should not use tampons at all while you are bleeding from a vag or c/s delivery.  The uterus has just had the placenta taken off the wall of it and it is like a healing wound.  You are only introducing bacteria and a high risk of infection to the uterus.  It is not recommended at all.  Only pads.  Besides, you usually don't bleed as long from a c/s as from a vag delivery.  I am pretty familiar with this topic as I am a labor and delivery nurse and educate people on the "no use" of tampons after any type of delivery.
