My C-section scar hurts, will that be an issue if I get pregnant again: Advice?

Okay, my son is nine months old, and my husband and I would like to try for another child. My son is not my husband’s bio child, but he has been there since before my son was born and been there every day since. I had my son but c section because of the cord being wrapped. My scar has slight pain, and I was wondering if anybody has anything on that if it will stop anything with having another child. I have spoken with my doctor about it just wanted other opinions. Is the slight pain at scar during sex gonna be a bad thing if I get pregnant? Please no hate

I’ve had 3 sections and the most I had was the annoying ness of it being itchy as it was healing
But I never had pain
I would def look into this further
The fact that the dr is not concerned is a concern for me

Go to another dr. For second opinion. You don’t need uneducated opinions on things like this.

Have had 3 medically needed c sections my blood pressure too high n seizure chances risk- scars r sore for awhile healing n myself never had any issues with that in future births ,

It means its not healed yet in the inside… My doctor advised to give at least 3 years gap for 2nd child. But if your willing and to help consider another child then you need a close monitor with your doctor.

I would definitely wait your body needs time to heal!

I’m only post c section 4 m but I only have pain every once in awhile with my scar and it’s only if I bend too much at the waste or try to strain myself

I’ve had two. I still feel numbness and sometimes itching at my incision sites and it’s been 6 years since my last c-section. No pain though.

The adhesions behind the scar pull and hurt. I’ve had 4 c-sections and everything went fine

Mine hurt for a year and was longer and cut lower than most its literally centimeters from my peepee hole :joy: and im prego with # 2 and its totally fine im 4ft 6 with 9 pound breech babies so its more then likely your scar tissue streching or still trying to heal

I had 3 c sections n no trouble.I would see another Dr.If u have adhesions or something the scar tissue itself hardens n pain with sex should not be.Definetely wait till checked by another Dr.An adhesion can be behind the incision forming a infection .Good luck honey my last one I was told could be natural but his cord wrapped n he was blue n needed oxygen 2 days.Good luck

It’s been almost 8 years since I had my last c section and the scar still hurts me from time to time

Is there scar tissue at the c-section? Could you have a hernia? I would def go to another Dr & get a second opinion!!

No. I’m pregnant with my second kid and I had a c section with my first. My scar doesn’t hurt.

Yes I had a c-section and got pregnant 4 months later not planned just happened like that but my second delivery was a vaginal delivery and it turned out fine I ended with 5 kids and only my first was a c-section

You should try massaging the scar tissue. You probably have adhesions

my sister got pregnant a few months after a c section. It was not discovered until a routine sonogram at about 6.5 months pregnant that one wall of her uterus was paper thin and would have ruptured if she went into labor, with serious consequences. They did an emergency c section. This likely does not pertain to you, but it might be a good idea to have this and other health matters looked at before you get pregnant right away. Your body may not have fully recovered from pregnancy and c section. If the scar hurts now, it might be uncomfortable to have it stretched by pregnancy.
