    After 5.5 weeks of postnatal bleeding and then my period right after, I started using tampons with that first period. I was tired of the pads. However, my first period was so heavy that I ended up having to use tampons and pads. Just make sure you have both in the house :)

    when i had my son who's now 3 iwas told after having 6week check, ifi was given all clear of course. i don't remember when i used them (i'm def a tampon girl without a doubt) but just be aware that they might not feel/fit the same or be as comfortableas they once was so keep other brands/sizes/pads in just incase. this sounds yuk but to me it felt like if i squatted down the whole tampon would just fall out. but i guess after pushing a 9lb 3.5oz baby out, with not alot of time passed to do keegals then it's nowonder changes happened. after a while they did start to feel comfy again :)

    You want to wait until after your first period. Sometimes all the lochia doesn't come out until then (even if you stopped bleeding prior to the first period). You want a cycle to go by before doing tampons to decrease the chance of infection.
