  • I had a uterine infection after my c-section. I knew I had one because it started with more discomfort than before, then it developed into full blown pain where I couldn't even stand upright. I also ended up with a fever. In the end, I was back in the hospital because of it.

  • I thought I had an infection because it was still painful & there was a musky scent near the cut. Turns out I was just sweating more near the incision because of the heat my body was creating there trying to heal. Whenever you suspect anything wrong though, you should talk to your OB or family practice doctore to make sure everything is alright.
