Mirena
Hi

I had Mirena inserted recently. Now I have read on a brochure you can not use tampons? Is this true - my gynae did not mention this?

If the Mirena pamphlet says that you should not use tampons, then I guess you should take heed. I can only think like Lerita, that htere is a worry of it hooking onto the strings of the Mirena.

Best wishes
