  • You do realize that you can rupture your uterus(causing you to definately become infertile) and very possibly die if you get pregnant so soon after a c-section.

    I know you are probably a troll but had to say just in case.

    Also it takes normal healthy fertile couples sometimes up to 6mths-1yr to conceive.

  • If that is what you are doing I am glad you haven't had another. It is stupid to try to get pregnant that soon.

  • How many times are you going to ask this question?

    You aren't infertile because you haven't managed to conceive after having a baby two months ago. If you're still struggling a year from now, then you might have something to worry about.

  • First off it is not safe to try to get pregnant that soon after a c section. second of all it can take a while to get pregnanat. DH and I spent 5 months trying before we got pregnant with second dd.

  • Call your doctor and ask him/her instead of asking us EVERY DAY. The hormones from your last pregnancy are probably still in your body.

  • No. C-sections do not cause infertility. You haven't gotten pregnant again because you are not ovulating again yet. No egg=no baby. It doesn't happen just like that once you've given birth. You expect too much from nature. It's not something you get to control.

  • Your body is NOT READY for another pregnancy. When it is you will get pregnant again. Not before. Stop comparing yourself to other women. Comparisons are the road to insanity.

    You will get pregnant again WHEN IT IS TIME and not before.

    Why the rush? If you think it's going to change something in your life, it won't.
