Your Postpartum Body

Has anyone had a hysterectomy before 30?

Has anyone had a hysterectomy before age 30? I cant this anymore; I’m seriously going insane. I had my 2nd c-section on September 17. The postpartum bleeding was intense. I had my IUD placed at my six-week p.p. visit. There was so much blood. Still, the doctor had to shut down the exam room to be cleaned. October 21, I started my first period since being pregnant. It’s still going. I’m changing super plus absorbency tampons every 3 hours. And I’m still leaking into overnight pads. The doc started me on a hormone to try and ease them, and it’s not working. I have to kids, and frankly, I’m 90% sure I want a hysterectomy. Curious to hear your thoughts and feedback, has anyone had a hysterectomy before age 30?

Questions regarding c-section scar: Please help!

I have a question, I HAVE ALREADY REACHED OUT TO MY OBGYN, but I wanted to see if anyone else has experienced something similar, I’m 4wks post my 5th section, I had a tubal as well. Out of the blue, one side of my section is so tender, I can’t cough cuz it hurts just like if I just had my section done, I can’t lay on that side at all, and I’m also getting a prickly sensation there as well. I’ve never had any of these symptoms, so I’m stumped. Has anyone felt like this? Anonymous Community MemberThis question was asked by a Facebook community member who has asked to remain anonymous.

I gained weight while pregnant and am insecure: Advice?

This is going to seem like an odd question, but I’m pregnant with my second baby right now. I’m 5’3 and about 155-160 pounds. When I was pregnant with my son, I weighed about 125-130 so. I started showing pretty quickly, and my bump was super cute. After having my son, I have a bit of a “mom tummy.” So I already have a little pudge there, and I’m just worried and insecure about how it may look with my bump this time. (Like me looking a lot bigger than before) I plan to lose all my baby weight after this baby, and I’ve gained no weight so far (I’m only 12 weeks). Dr. Doesn’t seem concerned about me being overweight. I guess I could just use some reassurance that me being insecure is normal, and I’m not alone.
