2 weeks after a D&C - can I use a tampon yet?


Its now 16 days since my D&C and I'm still having a bit of discharge (reddy brown stringy CM, sorry if thats TMI! - its not bright red blood anyway). I am using pads at the mo, but am going on holiday on Monday (a 2 week beach holiday) and as you can imagine, pads and swimming costumes don't really mix!

Do you think I could now use a tampon?

Thanks girlies!

It is best to wait till next cycle at least. The risk of infection is still high. Mind you if you would like to swim i imagine if you swam and took out right away you shoul be ok. Best check with epu to make sure but they have always said no to me. Hope you have a fab break we deserve it after what we have been through. Had my 7th last month and we have just booked hols for october. Take carexx

Yeah I was told to use pads on my first cycle then tampons were ok. To be honest Id have thought your cervix is closed up by now, so surely a tampon for short times is ok??

Thanks guys - I'll take some with me and see how light/heavy it is at the time - hopefully it will have stopped by then as there's hardly any now, and then I won't have to worry about either! xx
