Post-partum Period ✌Nikki☀ 1 child; Illinois 2110 posts

So I'm lightly spotting right now. I'm almost 9 weeks post partum. I have a feeling my period is about to start.. I'm having horrible cramps.



My question is, can I use tampons now? It may sound silly but I know you have to wait a while before using tampons. But I can't stand pads.

They say "Nothing in the vagina for 6 weeks" ...so yes, you're good to use tampons.
