How Soon After A Csection Are You Fertile Again
Potentially: The anus is an exit not an entrance, and so I discourage my patients from partaking. Besides the risk of infection including std's, you risk damage to the sphincter mechanism that can not be repaired, leaving you with variable incontinence. Not worth the risk! If you insist on having anal sex, I would discuss with your OB gyn doctor before attempting.
No: It was an old dogma but its not true any longer.See 1 more doctor answer
Probably: Unless there is a specific reason not to get a massage, it should be fine for you to get one. Enjoy!
Depends: It depends on a number of factors which mode of delivery to choose after a previous c/section. First and foremost, the reason for the first c/section needs to be taken into account. Next, is the hospital equipped to allow for a safe VBAC. This is a question that needs to be discussed with your obstetrician. If you have your prenatal care in a "staff clinic", ask to talk to the attending physician.
Please ask your OB: Your OB knows u and how the surgery went and should have already told you that before you went home form the hospital, usually u can have the post partum lochia for 3-5 weeks but it should get less and lighter as time goes on and should be done by the 6 weeks post partum exam, if the bleeding is not getting less or if it is increasing please call your OB as u will need to be checked.
Keep it dry: You shouldn't have to do much. One of the best things to do to help a cesarean scar heal well is to keep the area dry. That doesn't mean you can't shower, but pat the area dry with a towel. And if you have a belly that hangs over the scar, consider blowing a hair dryer on cool against your skin to keep the skin from getting too moist.
Yes, but concerns: Vaginal birth after c section = vbac, is often medically possible. After a c-section, the uterus has a scar from healing, that is the major concern. Even though the scar may not look bad before the uterus stretches, as your uterus expands for the growing fetus, the scarred area may become thin, with higher risk of tearing during contractions. Some hospitals decide that the legal risks are too high.See 1 more doctor answer
Yes, but: As a pregnant woman some states grant someone your age some leeway in making decisions concerning your OB care. You should discuss this with your OB. Whether for convenience, timing, or because you do not desire to go through labor, no physician is required to do a surgery they feel is not appropriate. Find out ahead of time what your choices are, you do not want to argue this when labor starts.
Yes: Discuss your fear with your surgeon/ physician/ nursing staff. Education also helps to reduce fear. Some level of anxiety is normal. If you become acutely fearful - Breath in slowly & deeply through your nostrils. Fill your lungs with air (but not to the point of discomfort). Hold for a count of five then slowly begin to exhale through an open mouth. Repeat at least 12 times, longer if you need to
I'd hold off a bit: Once you are discharged home, it is your choice as to what shoes to wear; however, wearing heels within the month after c-section is a little risky in light of recouping from the incision and the uncertain stability due to the ligamentous laxity in your joints following the delivery. Not to mention, you may not fit the heels you used to wear prior to the pregnancy.
Better to wait: Carbonated beverages have a tendency to increase gas/bloating in the belly. Most people recovering from surgery, especially abdominal surgery, are better off waiting to consume these beverages while the intestines regain normal function. Gas/bloating in this case will worsen pain/discomfort. More information about your case in a consult may help better guide a personalized timeline.
