How Soon After a Caesarean Can I Get Pregnant?
Generally, it is recommended that you should wait for at least 6 months after you get caesarean. This is because it is believed that the longer you wait, it would be better for your scar to be healed completely. Just a few days after your caesarean, you will feel exhausted, tired and also there is soreness during initial days. It is very necessary for your body to come back to normal and regain the weight, strength, and energy like before. Well, I would say this is a very good opportunity for you to get ready for the next pregnancy.
In some cases, there is a cut made just at the top of your pubic hair which is also called as bikini cut. This bikini cut generally heals in three-month but waiting for six months is important to store back the energy and strength in the body.
There is a very low risk of your caesarean scar tearing with a VBAC and this is generally called uterine rupture. It is said that the risk is low in this, but increases if the two pregnancies occur after too short periods. A small gap also increases your risk of having a low-lying placenta (placenta praevia) or that the placenta will separate from your womb (uterus). This is a serious complication known as placental abruption.
