how many days after my colposcopy can i wear tampons

how many days after my colposcopy can i wear tampons? I've rescheduled this thing twice cause of my period so the last time was the day before I got it and now I really need to wear a tampon to work and do other stuff but I want to make sure its safe.

Re: how many days after my colposcopy can i wear tampons

You cannot insert anything into your vagina until your doctor clears you.

If the doctor does a colpocopy without a biopsy, then it should be a day or so (but check with the doctor to be sure). If the doctor does a biopsy with the colposcopy then it could be 2-4 weeks. It depends on how quickly you heal . . . and your doctor's directions.

Call the doctor's office to get their estimated time.

After my colposopy I was not rechecked - they called me and gave me my results over the phone and told me I needed to return for the LEEP. I had to wait one week after my colposopy and biopsy to wear a tampon.
