20It's Not Time For Tampons Yet
Tampons are a no-no for at least the first six weeks after a woman gives birth. For the first few weeks after a woman has given birth, her body will cleanse itself of a lot of different substances. The best option for when this is happening is to stick to
sanitary pads. According to BabyCenter, women are left with an open wound where the placenta used to be when they give birth. Therefore, it is very important for a woman to avoid using tampons. When inserted, a tampon can introduce bacteria to the wound, causing infection. A new mother needs to make sure she is completely healed, and her body has finished cleansing itself before trying to use tampons again.
