What happens if I use a tampon for my period 2 and a half weeks after cryosurgery on the cervix? I have really heavy periods and can't use pads

Safe: What you proposed is safe. You may wish to take oral iron supplement and multivitamins to avoid iron deficiency anemia that is common with heavy periods. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine.

Check with your HCP: It may be wise to wait for any internal treatment until you contact your healthcare provider. Cryotherapy of the cervix may be associated with a significant discharge following the procedure. Check with your hcp first.

Is it safe to feel turned on and do oral sex after cryotherapy?

Is it safe to feel turned on and do oral sex after cryotherapy?

Probably not yet: If your cryotherapy was just in the last few days, I would hold off on any oral or penetrating vaginal sex until you are more healed - you don't want to introduce infection and complicate matters. Being turned on, however, and "taking care of business" in all other ways is probably just fine (masturbating, vibrator, external stimulation).

Is it safe and ok to wear tampons?

Is it safe and ok to wear tampons?

Tempons safety: Yes it is safe to wear tempons. There are advantages of wearing tempons versus pads, you can swim and ride horses if you use tempons. Pads are bulky and sometimes can cause rash inside of thighs or back. There is a myth that tempons can get lost in the body, but it is only a myth. The only very rare condition can be caused by tempons is toxic shock syndrome which can be fatal, you have to know this.

Is it safe to wear a tampon for 10 hours?

Is it safe to wear a tampon for 10 hours?

Maybe, maybe not: The longer a tampon stays inserted, the higher the risk for bacterial infection. It is difficult to say whether 6 hours is ok, and 10 hrs is not, but most recommend no longer than 6 hours.
