Anal tampon use avisable?

Hello! if frequent urge to go is the issue, is a tampon the answer? Seems like with a tampon you could make it through a meeting, or sleep through the night. If so, how long is it safe to keep in? Same guidelines as for vaginal use?

I think you could try a maxi pad on the outside. That might help a bit.

Google "medical anal plug".

I learn something new every day from google.
Who knows what is available in your country.

I too would go with a pad instead. I'd think that using a tampon there would cause problems. But, another option would be to contact your doctor for ideas.

I agree, really not a good idea. You risk irritating your rectum mucosa furthermore plus stimulating more contractions from your rectum with an object inserted inside. Risk of having trouble expelling the object as well.
Ask your Gi if Bismuth (pepto bismol) would be suitable for you to use on occasions. This can help slow down the bowel movements.
