It is not safe to use tampons during pregnancy. Tampons can cause toxic shock syndrome and can increase your chance of getting a bacterial infection in your vagina. If you have enough bleeding to use a tampon you need to call your doctor right away. Bleeding is common during pregnancy but not normal.
