I would wait on the tampon until after your visit, they want to make sure you are healed. I got my first period after delivery a week from this past Sat. and it was really heavy too, your body is just cleaning itself out still. Mine came at 9 weeks 1 day after delivery and is finally starting to go away now. If you are worried call, but otherwise sounds normal and you go in tomorrow. I did have trouble after my first baby with pain and also keeping them in. I had lots of stitches though and waited almost a year. This time around I was able to use tampons, but again they slip out and get uncomfortable, so be prepared in case you have issues too.
thanks i never thought about the tampons falling/not staying in as good. i guess they would though. thanks. only bad part is it is getting hot here and swiming time so i sure hope they do after a while.
I had my 1st period at exactly 30 days postpartum (baby #2). I was surprised since I am breastfeeding. I have hd one every 27 days since, and baby is now almost 5 mos. My 1st period was very heavy for several days. I did not use tampons. My other periods since then have been super heavy on day 2, but normal (for me) on the other days. I do use tampons now, but use the super. The regular feels a bit loose in there.
I'm currently on my 1st period postpartum. It's very light, but crampy. I got it exactly 1 month pp. I forgot that I always get AF 1 month after having a baby or miscarriage. I'd love to use a tampon, but forget it. After having a 10lb baby I doubt it'll stay in there so soon :-)
I had a 10 lb. baby too, could not keep them in for quite awhile, took me months, almost a year before I even felt like I wanted to try one. Was your last one the big baby? I just had another one and they induced early to prevent another one. He was just under 9 lbs. and it was a total breeze to heal from that one. My Dr. even stitched me up tighter since I really needed it. I also found that the kegels helped tighten up. I still have issues with them, but not nearly as bad.
Just had a baby and tubal in july by way of csection. I bled for a while and stopped . My baby was 6weeks on monday. A few days prior I started bleedingvery heavily.
I was concerned about bleeding so soon after but my doc reassured me that it was my cycle and abdominal pain was just from body and uterus still healing.
I thought maybe i pulled something or something was wrong because I don't remember having a cycle this soon after firt pregnany.
Should I still be alarmed? How long was your cycle and wasit heavy?
