  • Me? I had a crash c-section with general anesthesia. I did not give birth.

  • yes it's normal, especially after csection honey. heck they cut your uterus open and now it's contracting to have your period. it'll hurt every month until that muscle is fully healed, and quite possibly be slightly more painful for the rest of your life.
