Six weeks: Not for at least six weeks after the birth. Even if you've never used sanitary pads before, you will need to use them in the first few weeks after your baby is born. This is because during this time, the inner layer of cells from your (womb) sloughs off and passes out of your vagina. This period-like discharge is called lochia. ...Read more
