Post CSection and Tampons
I went through two ceasars but never used tampons afterwards - don't really know why, I suppose everybody suggests using pads only.

Can I use tampons after the op??

You should use pads rather than tampons for the first six weeks. There is a raw area which is healing and you don't want to risk introducing infection by pushing anything into the vagina.
