    Assume that's what it's called!

    When I was in hospital was told just to use mat pads, which I have been.

    It's coming up to week 5. Is it ok to use a tampon? I really don't know. Starting to feel smelly using a pad all the time iykwim.

    No tampons I'm afraid. Too risky in terms of introducing infection etc so best sticking with pads. Maybe get some wet toilet tissue so you can freshen up a bit.each time you go to the loo Xx

    Rubbish isn't it? I never use pads normally either Im allergic to most of them and like you i felt smelly too but they recon the risk of infection is high so i stuck with pads too. Hopefully it will go soon.

    It's horrid isn't it...............I'm going through baby wipes a rate of knots as I hate that feeling you get with pads on!!!

    Thankfully it has slowed down the last 3 days and nothing over night so the end is hopefully coming!!
