A Swollen Vagina After A C Section
Swollen urethra and vagina after sex. Burning sensation while I use the restroom, no odor nor discharge. Std? Uti? Reaction to condom?
See answer: Such symptoms could be caused by any of the above: UTI (usually burning with urination, urgency, frequency); std (gc, chlamydia most common), vaginitis (though usually associated with a discharge), or allergy to a contraceptive, spermicide, or lubricant. If symptoms occur right after sex within hours, allergy or trauma related to vigorous/prolonged sex most likely. If symptoms persist, see your md. ...Read more
Hello I’ve had 8 kids one by c-section in 2010 I’ve been married for 20 years and a few weeks ago I noticed that my vagina was swollen. It looks like I had a baby in a way and if I push it looks like my insides are coming out.?
I had a C-section 5 weeks ago and I had sex for the first time today and now my vagina feels swollen with a bit of a burning sensation, why is this?
Please call your OB: Doc and did your OB doc tell you, that u could ahae sex yet? Because in us, we have our csection pts come back for a post partum check up at 6 weeks at which time a pelvic exam is done to make sure evetrything is healing properly and sex is not advised until after that exam, if u are breast feeding it could be from lack of estrogen also want to r/o infection pleasse call your OB for an exam. ...Read more
Numbness inside my vagina after a c-section? Not feeling my uterus contract? Numbness around my anus? Be caused by the c-section cut?
Maybe not: Those areas are not necessarily innervated by the surface skin nerves cut during the C/section. Those are deeper nerves that may have been impacted by the pressure of the pregnant uterus. Consult with your OB surgeon to ensure that there were no complications from the surgery involving those deeper nerves. ...Read more
Skin?: It would be incredibly abnormal to have skin coming out of your vagina after a c-section. In fact this doesn't make sense. Perhaps you are referring to lochia which is the normal discharge that occurs after having a baby. I highly suggest scheduling a visit with your ob/gyn for an evaluation. ...Read more

Many different cause: There many different causes of pain with intercourse or dyspareunia. It would be difficult to get a short answer without a physical examination. Therefore I would recommend following up with your gynecologist. Did this pain exist prior to childbirth? Are there any other associated symptoms such as urinary symptoms, vaginal discharge, itching or burning...? Is the pain with initial or deep penetra. ...Read more
Brownish bloody discharge from vagina? Does that have anything to do with c-section I had a year ago?
No: One year is too far removed to think it is due to your c. Section. Make sure you are getting pap smears. Sometimes a cervical ectropion can cause brown discharge (this is normal but a nuisance), and of course you need to make sure your uterus is ok. If the discharge goes on, see your doctor. ...Read more

Postpartum sex: Women may have issues post partum with sex due to a variety of issues. Infection, dryness, not being adequately stimulated may all be issues. First, lots and lots of foreplay to get her vagina ready. Second try a water based lube the first couple of times and don't necessarily expect to finish. Also, make sure she's at least 6 weeks out from c section. She may need to see her OB/GYN as well. ...Read more

Had bleeding after sex few time. Pap ok. Dr say cervix and vagina look healthy. Could it still be a gynaecological cancer? (had c section 14 wks ago)
Unlikely: If your doctor examined and found vagina and cervix to be healthy and you had a baby 14 weeks ago, it is highly unlikely that you have cancer that is causing post-coital bleeding. Try a lubricant like K-Y jelly and if the bleeding recurs, it may warrant a second evaluation by your doctor or a different doctor. ...Read more

Once a month I get a feeling of flutter in stomach and fullness in vagina, not pregnant, 7 months pp c section, irregular bleeding as breast feeding?
Not sure: Fluttering is usually either intestinal movements or a baby moving. If you are sure you're not preg.. . I'm thinking it's your bowels. The fact that it's once a month is confusing, esp if you're not ovulating regularly. But ovulation can cause a feeling of fullness. Your vagina may feel different while breast feeding due to lack of estrogen. I would give it time, see what happens after weaning. ...Read more
What is a better option, vaginal birth orna csection? Does the vagina go back to normal after birth? What are the changes that happen?
It depends: In an uncomplicated pregnancy (healthy mother with normal anatomy and well developed stable fetus), vaginal delivery is ideal (this is how nature intended it to be!!). C-sections are necessary in some cases to preserve the health of both mother and baby, but this is still a significant surgery which should not be taken lightly. ...Read more
26, two csection kids, 1 sexual partner ever. I have a large lump at the entrance of my vagina that bulges out slightly. What is it? Should I worry?
I'm 22w preg. I don't have sex for 5 months. I'm afraid, it can hurt my baby. May it tighten my vagina and cause complicated delivery? Need of caesarean?
Sex during pregnancy: Sex during pregnancy is a good thing as long as you're interested & willing. Never do anything against your will. With that said, receiving oral sex is fine as long as he doesn't blow air into you (which puts you at theoretic risk for air embolism). Check out http://www. Mayoclinic. Com/health/sex-during-pregnancy/ho00140 for everything you wanted to know but were afraid to ask, to paraphrase woodya. ...Read more
