  • I've had 2 C-Sections. I didn't have a problem with either, I've never really heard of this. If she's worried about anything at all, she needs to see her doc tho...sorry couldn't be of more help. good luck.

  • Anytime you have a c-section or any other surgery on your uterus and then later become pregnant you are at risk for the uterus rupturing from the scar tissue thinning the uterine wall. This is a serious need for medical attention. Your sister should be seen ASAP.

    Also if your sister is already having these problems it may be especially important for her to look into having a VBAC instead of a repeat c-section because this problem will only get worse with each c-section.
