Is it normal to have pain at your c-section scar when you have contractions?

I am having pain at my c-section when I have contractions.


Answer by  Rose (6804)

Pain at your c-section scar during contractions is caused by the muscles pulling away from the skin and tightening. It is very normal and common to occur. If it becomse bothersome you should talk with your doctor about it. Always tell your doctor when you are having contracations to pay attention to pre term labor.

Yes, this can be normal. Just as it is normal to have pain in your spine for years after having an epidural. The area where your scar is may be healed, but since muscles were damaged with the incision, you can feel pain in it with contractions.

It is absolutely normal to have pain at your scar during contractions. This is a place that is no longer ellastic and does not give as easily when you contract. Some have pain during menstral cramp and other activities that pull the abdomin.

Yes, you will probably have some pain, itching or discomfort on the scar for a while unless you get some plastic surgery dome. If you have the scar and are pregnant again, it, just like the rest of your stomach is stretching and that will be uncomfortable.
