When can you use tampons safely again after having a baby? I have been staying away from them because I didn't know how long you had to wait and forgot to ask HV. I have been using towel still but I always leak and I've just come on my period again already and it's so heavy it's not even funny. One minute there is nothing, then comes a massive gush of blood.(TMI sorry) I've just flooded all through my jeans and over the computer chair and everything, right in the middle of sorting Damien out I used to use a mooncup (wonderful interesting invention for those of you who are more Eco) but after a baby you need to get a new size and I haven't ordered one yet, and lost my old one when I moved last year. Anyone know?? Sorry kind of rambled.
