I had a c-section 5 weeks ago and my doctor appt is tomorrow. I was just wondering whether or not they gave you a va___al check up with a c-sec? I did push for 3 hours, but he wasn't coming down so I ended up in the OR. Will I still get checked even though he didn't end up coming out that way?

They did for me and i didn't push at all. I bet they will just to make sure everything looks good.

My doc didn't check down there at my post partum appointment. I didn't go through labor though and when they did the surgery I was still thick and closed, so I'm not sure if that had something to do with why they didn't check me.

They didn't check me down there either on my 6 week postpartum check up. I was really relieved. It makes me really uncomfortable eeww I hate it. I had a prenatal check up and HAD to have a pap smear today. I guess I just feel like they aren't gentle enough or something. They jab the spectulum in, OPEN it, do what they have to do, jab a million fingers in and push down on your uterus with the other. I guess we've all be through it and know how it goes. . . But for methey always say come down farther, scoot down some more, bring your bottom closer to me. I'm like geesh! I feel like my legs are over you shoulders!!! I just don't like strangers all up in my stuff. And the freaking nurse or medical a__sistant or the make sure I don't get raped girl, I suppossed to stand off to the side NOT at the foot looking at my business. SO UNCOMFORTABLE!!!

I've had 3 sections and only ever checked my scar on my tummy.

I partially delivered my ds and he became stuck and I had to have a c-section. They only check my incision also. But the last time i was check was at 3 weeks to. I'm not sure if that was because I was already coming in often b/c of my blood pressure still being up and they check the scar each time so decided after seeing it 3 times i was good?
