Safe Tampons After Cryosurgery
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.
Just had cryotherapy and am not supposed to use tampons, but can I use a yeast infection treatment with an insertion?
Probably: You should always ask your doctor, but generally it is not usually a problem.See 1 more doctor answer
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).
No it is not: You should not use salicylic acid and cider vinegar immidiately after cryosurgery.
Know of none: Cotton won't be broken down in a septic system.
Yes, it is: If you are not bleeding heavily or experiencing pelvic abdominal pains and fevers, you can safely return to all your routines, including "the use of a tampon and swimming".
Is it safe to use a light flow tampon for a couple of hours in the mornings for discharge? I have a friend that does this.
Light flow tampon: Yes this is perfectly safe.Get a more detailed answer ›
Generally very safe: With the exception of leaving it in too long or forgetting about it- can cause infection or toxic shock syndrome. Just be sure to change the tampons regularly and 1-3 times/day depending on your flow.
Both are fine: IF--the tampon is changed at least every 4 to 6 hours.
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.See 1 more doctor answer
Both are safe: As long as regularly changed.Get a more detailed answer ›
