After C Section Problems
please ask your OB: This is one of the most basic questions that your OB should have already told you before you were discharged from the hospital, usually after your OB does your 6 week post partum check then if that is normal it will be ok to resume, but your doc may give u the ok sooner or later so please call your OB and ask your OB before you have intercourse. ...Read more
Too soon : It's too soon to determine the need for a c section at 33 weeks. Your baby could still change its position over the next 5-6 weeks. If your baby remains transverse or becomes breech late in pregnancy, you will need a c section. However, it is simply too early to tell right now. Discuss this with your obgyn. Good luck! ...Read more

What are the chances of having a vaginal birth after a c section. I have only had one child via c section 4 years ago. After only dilation wasn't happening after 17 hours?
Pretty good: Vaginal birth after c/section (VBAC) has a pretty good success according to current research. You must work closely with your OB.

Possible: A cesarean section is not a contraindication to an abortion, nor is anemia, however you may want to go to a provider who has associations with a local hospital in case there are complications, which would be very unlikely anyway as long as you are cared for by a trained professional. Safety is also dependent on how far along you are, so the sooner the better. ...Read more

Risks of uterine rupture? Had a c section 4 months ago and pregnant 7 weeks. Been advised to terminate pregnancy
Not for, but for...: Tampons should not be used for bleeding related to the C-section still healing, so avoid them until you've completely healed. That is, the internal wound where the placenta was attached to the uterus. That said usually at 6 weeks after C-section, if all bleeding has stopped, your doctor will give the green light to use tampons with the next menstrual cycle. ...Read more

Infection is usual prevented by good technique and antibiotics. Pain is alleviated by medications. Injury to the bowel, bladder, or other structures are not common. Blood clots and other rarer complications exist. ...Read more

I have never had problems until after my c-section now docs say i may have endometriosis is there a connection pain started 3 weeks post op 3yrs ago ?
Good question: Since endometriosis is the presence outside the uterus inside your belly of the tissue that lines the inside of the uterus which grows every month to prepare for potential fetus and then is sloughed as a period if there is no conception, one could imagine that after c-section some of that tissue could seed the abdomen - this is definitely a question for ob/gyn - doctors? ...Read more

It depends: What type of c-section should be performed in the pregnancy after a previous c-section depends upon the type of incision made on the uterus in the preceeding c-section and anything else that is going on in this pregnancy.

Issue after c-section i had a c-section about six weeks ago and I do not think my uterus has completely gone down to it's original size. I'm concerned that this may cause problems since my husband and i would like to start trying again for another baby in
Usually : Usually it takes 1 to 2 months for your uterus to involute or shrink down to a non pregnant size. However the size will always be larger after a term pregnancy and with a c-section the position of the uterus can change. It is only 6 weeks since your delivery so perhaps this is why but if it does not shrink soon you should go to see your health care provider to make sure there is not a uterine fibroid or other reason. Having a larger uterus because of a pregnancy does not prevent future pregnancies as long as the uterus is still a normal uterus. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
