How many c sections can someone safely have? Anybody out there with more than three or four? Anybody with any good c-section experiences? Please respond. Thanks


djh - December 14th, 2005 9:58 PM

I had four, but I did not enjoy the experiences...too many complications and lasting damage. Good luck if you need one, however.

i have had four and may be going on five if I can help it. I have never had any complications from any of them, thank god! I am only worried about uterine rupture!!


jodie - January 26th, 2006 10:40 PM

i have four children by c section and there was no complications with any of them.i was just wondering if anybody had had more than four


sye - January 26th, 2006 10:52 PM

my doctor told me the more c sections i have the greater chances of complications through out the pregnancy

Hi, I am 40 years old and I had 5. In hind sight, I wish I had quit at 2 for the scar tissue came back to haunt me. Each surgery creates more adhesions and internal scarring. Try to limit if possible.

linda have you had to hve surgery due to scar tissue? any problems with the pregnancies/delivery?


jodie - January 30th, 2006 11:13 AM

hi linda i was just wondering wat you meant by your scar tissue coming bac to haunt you....and sye how many have you had


amyp - January 30th, 2006 1:40 PM

jodie i know i am not linda but scar tissue can do alot of things to your body...my second c was difficult due to the amount of scar tissue in there...everything sticks together like super glue and all of your organs become adhered to each other...and in some women like myself and djh scar tissue comes in ma__s amounts...i had an abnormal amount of scar tissue and causes pain..i know some people end up with a hysterectomy...so ther are risks to c's that people dont see in the long run...not meaning to scare you but it is always good to know all of the long term complications...


jodie - January 30th, 2006 6:04 PM

thankyou amyp for your info am just wondering wether to get sterilised but it has become a big decsion so i am trying to get as much info as possible again i thankyou


Linda - January 30th, 2006 7:53 PM

hi, I had 5...had one emergency c and was talked into having the second one and the rest was a given. I had to have a hysterectomy because the scar tissue stuck my bladder to my uterus and I couldn't go out of the house during my monthly cycle due to heavy bleeding. I love my children, but had a lot of pain due to the internal scar tissue that actually got worse over time. Not to scare you, I needed the first one. Just want to say limit the amount or try v____als when you can.


olivia - January 31st, 2006 6:52 PM

amy and linda, did you have bikini cut scars? Does the type incision cut make a difference in future problems with repeated c-sections?


amyp - February 1st, 2006 9:52 AM

i dunno? i have bikini cuts? i dont know if it helps or not..the doctor says i have ALOT of scar tissue and my uterus is adhered to my bladder and colon but i dont have much problems...i have pain in my lower right side occasionlly but nothing like i have heard these other women talk about...i hope i never have to experience that and we are wanting a 3rd baby and i am so scared i am asking for trouble...


olivia - February 1st, 2006 6:25 PM

i thought maybe the lower cuts they do now are less prone to problems and since linda is 40 with 5 kids, maybe she had a vertical incision. I am not sure when they started doing the bikini. ( i think it has a better name, that is just what comes to me since it is on my bikini line). I want to have 3-4 kids (if I get so lucky!) and my first was an emergency c section, so I am nervous now. It seems like some say go vbac, but that increases your risk of just about everything if you need another emergency c section. I guess I should just wait and see if I ever get pregnant again before I worry. jodie had 4 with no problems so maybe I shouldn't worry, I just wish I could know ahead how things were going to go.


Linda - February 1st, 2006 7:48 PM

Hi, I had the "bikini cut" each time. My neighbor had a c-section 2 years ago and last week gave birth via VBAC to a larger baby...she was concerned like you but all went rather smoothly. I do know you are flirting with more cesarean related problems if you plan on 3-4. A c-section is considered a trauma to the body and the body will heal itself which comes in the form of scar tissue. I would discuss your plans with your doctor and see if you can at least atttempt a VBAC, ending the labor early rather than later if it looks like a no-go. Once you have your second c you will probably never be allowed to go VBAC again. They have been doing bikini cuts since the early 70's when I was just a little girl myself :~)


jodie - February 1st, 2006 8:43 PM
