A question from a patient: “it seems to me that tampons make my cramps worse – can it be?”

Answer: menstrual cramps are the contractions of the uterus as it expels the extra lining that developed in preparation for conception, which did not materialize.   That said, a tampon cannot regulate your cycle nor affect the body’s natural process of thinning out the uterine wall in preparation for next month’s cycle.
