Does using tampons during pregnancy cause miscarriages

Do not use tampons during pregnancy. You should not have any reason to use tampons, if you are bleeding you need to call your doctor because that much blood is not normal.

Tampons will increase your risk of infection and the infection could pass to the baby or cause a miscarriage. Tampons can cause Toxic Shock Syndrome which is very serious and even deadly. Tampons could cause vaginal and cervical irritation by drying out your vagina.
