Postpartum Bleeding After C Section
Risks of uterine rupture? Had a c section 4 months ago and pregnant 7 weeks. Been advised to terminate pregnancy
Not recommended: Controversy over vaginal birth after c-section has gone from one end of the spectrum (no) to the other (sometimes) . Your OB can determine if you are a candidate for vaginal birth after c-section and if you are your delivery will be very closely monitored and preparation for c-section will be in place in case you need it. The surgical team will be nearby throughout your labor and delivery. ...Read more

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

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. ...Read more
Had a c section almost 7 weeks ago. I stopped bleeding about a week after the c section. I've now been bleeding for over a week. Normal?

Have been bleeding after sex (though not every time) since had c section 14 weeks ago. Could the bleeding be linked to c section?
Probably not but...: It is relatively rare that "bleeding after sex since a Cesarian...be linked to the c section" unless the incision in your lower uterine segment/upper cervix failed to heal properly or completely. If you have a normal speculum exam, Pap test and Gyn exam, the possibility of a "Cesarian scar defect" may need to be ruled out or ruled in by a careful sonographic evaluation by a certified sonographer. ...Read more
Hemorrhoids?: Hemorrhoids are the most common cause of rectal bleeding after pregnancy. You don't need to have had a vaginal delivery to have them, and they can be either internal or external. Other causes are anal fissures and colon polyps. It's unlikely that it has anything to do with the cesarean specifically. I would ask your doctor for a referral to a colorectal specialist to look into it (literally). ...Read more
No: Some brownish discharge 3 weeks after c section is not uncommon. Mild transient odor may be acceptable, however if you have persistent odor, let your OB know. ...Read more
Would uterine, cervical or ovarian cancer be noticed during a c section? C section 14 weeks ago. Bled after sex few times so am worried about cancer.
No: Cervical cancer/ovarian cancer would probably not be noted at the time of a c/section. However, most doctors do screen for cervical cancer (a pap-smear) near the beginning of pregnancy care. So if you had cervical cancer it would have been picked up on this pap-smear. Ovarian cancer is not common at age 34. I'd see your doc about the bleeding but think cancer risk is low.
