Has anyone got pregnant after having a c-section? If so how many weeks after your c-section did you fall pregnant? And can you still have a good pregnancy getting pregnant after a c-section. I had a c-section 9 weeks ago and have a feeling I'm pregnant again! :S

Oh my! Idk? I'm sure it's possible, but not sure if it's the safest.

Yeah it proberbly won't be safe, I dont know I've read alot on the internet and some women it's happened to and they've had healthy good babies and a fine pregnancy but abit more sore.. and of course had to have another c-section..

"...and of course had to have another c-section. "
Look up vbac (vaginal birth after ceasarean).
Maybe it's not safe within a year of a c-section, but in most cases, it is a safe, healthy option.

It can happen of course, and you could have a safe delivery, but so soon after major surgery, it isn't the smartest idea. Your body was cut open literally, it needs time to heal.

ERMDK, while VBAC is a good option for many, its not an option for everyone because not every dr is willing to perform one for legal reasons and there are actually places that wont allow it within city limits.

You are extreamly fertile after giving birth. That's why your doctor says no sex until 6 weeks pp and pushes birth control at your PP check or the use of condoms.

I was told 2+ years is ideal with a csection to allow your muscles and uterus to properly heal. They say 9+ months to fully heal from a vaginal birth.

Yet the patient's rights trump any of those policies, so...
