No, it is not safe to use tampons for spotting at any time.
Tampons don't just absorb blood they also absorb vaginal moisture needed to protect the vaginal tissues, thus tampons cause small tears in the vaginal walls which increases risks of Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS) by giving bacterial toxins responsible for TSS direct access to the bloodstream. Without sufficient flow damage is increase and so in turn risk of TSS is increased too.
Tampons also give bacteria and yeast the perfect place to multiply so are a common cause of vaginal infections such as yeast infections and Bacterial Vaginosis, which you're already at higher risk of contracting during pregnancy and can be more difficult to treat in pregnancy.
If you have spotting then use a pantiliner, pad, or period underwear - the latter are likely going to be more comfortable as they're just like normal underwear, Lunapanties would be best. You could also use menstrual cups or softcups which are internal but much safer and more hygienic than tampons.

Yes, unless the doctor says not to. Just treat it the same way you would during a period and be sure to change it often. I, personally, wouldn't suggest it because your body needs to get rid of fluids, the tampon could cause an infection and harm the baby. Use pads instead.

Is is safe to breath in bleach while pregnant? most cleaning products, including bleach are fine during pregnancy - as long as you work in a well ventilated a…rea - and this would apply whether you were pregnant or not! cleaning ovens is not advisable as it is difficult to maintain good ventilation in such a small area. also keep in mind that that even though the cleaning products may be safe - an expectant mother should not be overly exerting herself with heavy lifting or overly exhuberant cleaning...im sure someone can help you in the short term....:) www.babycentre.co.uk/pregnancy/isitsafeto/bleachexpert/
THERE IS NO NEED TO USE. IN CASE IT IS NEEDED, CONSULT THE DOCTOR.
No, it is not safe to wear a tampon while spotting. . Tampons dry-out vaginal tissues causing splitting and ulceration that give TSST-1 toxins responsible for TSS a more dire…ct route into the body - thus using tampons when not fully menstruating or using too high an absorbency causes more damage so pose higher risk of TSS. Use liners, pads, menstrual cups or softcups for spotting..
Women do not menstruate when pregnant, although it is possible to bleed during pregnancy it is rare and shouldn't be heavy enough to warrant tampon use - if you are bleeding d…uring pregnancy then see your doctor for emergency care. Tampons wouldn't be a good idea for vaginal bleeding during pregnancy as the bleeding wouldn't likely be heavy, there will be no consistent flow so you'd not know when it would reduce or stop as with menstrual flow patterns, and pregnant women are already at higher risk of infection so using tampons would make this worse.
No. Suboxone may cause birth defects. If a woman taking Suboxone becomes pregnant, tell your doctor right away. It is important to discuss the benefits and risks of the medica…tion to decide when, how, and if you should stop taking Suboxone. You should discuss this with both the doctor prescribing Suboxone and with your obstetrician/gynecologist. From the research I have done on this subject, a flat out "NO" is not a correct answer. Especially considering that there are not conclusive studies supporting it.. In my humble opinion, I would advise a woman that becomes pregnant to discuss this with her OB/GYN BEFORE DISCONTINUING Suboxone. Primarily due to "conclusive studies" that indicate withdrawals from Opiates or Opiates w/ partial antagonist -DO INCREASE THE RISK OF MISCARRIAGE. In any case this is an incredibly personal decision and not one that should be taken lightly nor w/o the advice of your OB. In addition, studies suggest that it is the Naloxen (sp?) that can POSSIBLY cause risk to your baby- not the bupenephrine; therefore, expectant mothers might consider asking their physician about Subutex. There is no question that the "ideal" situation is that pregnant women be able to avoid medications in general, however this is an unrealistic expectation. ESPECIALLY for women that suffer from the disease of addiction that are actively taking steps towards their recovery. You should be proud of yourself and give pause to the information acquired solely via the Internet and discuss all options before making any decisions.
Yes, it is completely safe to use a laptop while pregnant, although the further along you get, the less lap you will have :) The only physical problems or discomfort caused by… laptops is using them while wearing shorts; it causes your thighs to get a bit too warm and red when used for a long time with nothing to protect your skin.
When you are pregnant you no longer have your period, and if you do experience bleeding you should see your doctor asap. NO you should never wear a tampon while pregnant as i…t is an infection risk. If you have a discharge (as many women do) wear a napkin. If your loss is so heavy that you feel you need a tampon it is not normal and you need to see a doctor as soon as possible. No, wearing a tampon while not on your period can cause problems. And why would you want to? If you are still having periods that means you are not pregnant. WRONG!! just because you are on your period doesnt mean you are not pregnant. i know plenty of people who were still getting monthly periods while pregnant and had a healthy baby..
no never wear a tampon while pregnant even i you just think there might be a chance of you being pregant it can hurt the baby no matte how big or small the baby is
No, absolutely not - tampons should not be used unlessmenstruating. Using a tampon when not needed is putting yourself at unnecessaryrisk of Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS), vagin…al infections, vaginaldamage, discomfort, and dioxin exposure. Tampons absorb vaginalmoisture causing damage to vaginal tissues, as well as causingdiscomfort this gives TSST-1 toxins responsible for TSS a moredirect route into your bloodstream so putting you at higher risk ofTSS - thus using tampons without any menstrual flow will causesignificantly higher damage and higher risk.
Using Chloraseptic is ok to use, but only the childrens one because it has less things in it to harm the baby.
yes. you can also sit in an oatmeal bath (aveeno) or use hydrocortisone cream
Its not safe to use a sunbed ever. have fun in chemo!!!
Ask your doctor for specifics.
Tampons should not be worn overnight while sleeping. . Tampons need to be changed every 4-6 hours and as most people sleep longer this means you risk leaving tampons too long… - increasing risks of vaginal infections and Toxic Shock Syndrome. When laying down less blood can flow down into the tampon, so you risk using too high an absorbency. . You should also alternate with pads as often as possible to allow your vagina a chance to clean itself, reestablish pH, and heal after tampon use - overnight is the most convenient time for this. . Yes, it is safe. The main thing is to keep changing your tampon every few hours. It isn't safe to use the same one for a day or two. Bacteria builds up into toxic shock syndrome and can kill you. If you are a young girl doctors advise not using one until you are older.
