Hi. I have never used tampons, I'm 46 but due to the prolapse would like to hear from anyone who successfully improves their symptoms with them. I just successfully used them (regular) for 3 days whilst on my period. I have read that super tampons are best. I've also read that taking a tampon out dry is painfull. I'm wondering what is the best thing to do. Would putting some lube or olive oil on them work? I read somewhere to dip the end of the tampon in witch hazel to make it splay out before lubing it. Does anyone agree with that?
I am going down this route as apparently my prolapse isn't bad enough for a ring pessary according to my gp. Also I am struggling with bubbles continuously exiting my vagina especially after peeing, and bending. It is driving me crazy like to breakdown level. With the regular tampon on my period the bubbles were vastly reduced!
I would greatly appreciate any help, I have been using Vagifem for 6 months since it happened. I am not working but would like to. I usually do cleaning or shop work but I don't think I can cope with bending like this, or carrying. The thought of a desk job at my age does scare me. Has prolapse affected anyone's ability to work? I'm fortunate I have a loving, considerate husband who works. I spend all day running the house at my own pace at the moment.
