  • I don't have any advice for you. I've never had a c-section. You might want to just go ahead and contact your doctor now and tell him that you think you might be pregnant again. If the baby implants on the incision, that could be very dangerous for both you and baby, but if the baby implanted on the back of the uterus, it might be possible for you to just be on bed-rest while the wound is healing so neither you nor baby are in danger, maybe hospital bed-rest? I'm not a doctor at all. I hope that if you are pregnant you and your doctor can figure out a way to keep both you and the baby safe throughout the pregnancy. Did the doctor not recommend any types of contraception? Or are you against it or unable to use it for some reason? I don't use contraception of any kind, but if it were a life-threatening thing I might be more inclined to consider it.

  • i got pregnant again 7months after my second c-sections, it really depends how well and quickly u heal but yes it can take up to a year to heal on the inside.

    ive had a total of three c-sections, because ive had them so close together my doctor has warned me another would be dangerous,

    my advised would be see your doctor, any stomach pains heavy bleeding keep a close eye on and honestly gve your body time to heal healthly mom healthly baby.

  • At six weeks postpartum, you shouldn't have even been sexually active yet. Maybe by a few days. Also, it's entirely possible that your cycle has not regulated being so newly delivered still. However, if you are pregnant, you need immediate care. So overall, my recommendation would be to make an appointment with your OB to talk about what's going on with your incision. You should be having one around now anyway.

  • I had a c section with my 1st. I got pregnant when she was only 7 months old. The doctors will let u have a vaginal birth if you want one but because you got pregnant so soon they rather you dont, i had another c section to make sure my son would be ok...U can risk your life and the life of the unborn baby by having a vaginal birth after a c section when you push u can rip the scar inside and have to have an emergency c section. Go see if your pregnant and talk it over with your doctor.
