Oh Iv done something stupid. C section 9 days ago, bleeding almost stopped. Had sex today and felt fine apart from I started bleeding extremely heavy during and after. So much so it was all over the bed 😩.

It's calmed down now but still bright red.

I feel like a fecking idiot. 😪😪

user1468244773 Sat 30-Jul-16 17:24:15

It's now stopped and pale pink

Well done for getting laid! grin not quite sure what else you want us to say.

user1468244773 Sat 30-Jul-16 17:37:32

Reassure me that I haven't don't internal damage 😩😩

pinkyredrose Sat 30-Jul-16 17:39:36

Don't worry I don't suppose you've caused lasting damage! Might be best to wait a while and go gentle though!

Good god, there a very good reason why no sex for 6 weeks op, very high risk of haemorrhage and infection.
Goodness knows how it even crossed your mind post-CS, I'd have been far too sore 😳

You're not a fecking idiot.

pinkyred just might be though.

Sorry no experience of c section, hope you're okay op. Hopefully someone experienced can put your mind at ease.

You will have internal stitches and bright red blood doesn't sound ideal- I would get checked out. Even with a vaginal birth 9 days isn't a good idea, but with a c-section you are still healing. Astonished you even felt like shagging though, i was in a lot of pain for ages after mine.

AprilLoveJ Sat 30-Jul-16 17:42:22

Maybe you should get checked out at a&e or even call your midwife op? Just to be safe?

Well you lasted longer than me after my c section , I managed to wait 7 days...

However the bleeding is slightly worrying, it might just be that you've "shaken" things up a bit when it's quite raw still but if it does start again I would phone for advice. That didn't happen with me.

Are you in any pain?

user1468244773 Sat 30-Jul-16 17:43:37

I feel okay in myself, I don't know what happened! I'm not exactly looking my finest right now!
The bleeding was scary. It was bright red but it's practically stopped now

9 days?!! shock

RJnomore1 Sat 30-Jul-16 17:47:29

If it has stopped and you are not in pain I would just keep an eye out.

grin at all the shocked faces.

(You did use protection didn't you?)

user1468244773 Sat 30-Jul-16 17:48:37

No I didn't 😩😩😩 going to get morning after pill tomorrow. I'm so angry with myself 😒😒

RJnomore1 Sat 30-Jul-16 17:50:19

Oh dear now that bit WAS daft

Get some condoms while you're out too.

PeppasNanna Sat 30-Jul-16 17:50:58

How old are you? confused

user1468244773 Sat 30-Jul-16 17:51:41

26! You would think I'd know better!!😪

bigkidsdidit Sat 30-Jul-16 17:52:10

I believe there is a risk of infection because the cervix is still open for a few weeks post birth. Did you go into labour?

StuffandBother Sat 30-Jul-16 17:52:34

I'm sure you'll be fine - your foof technically hasn't had the 'trauma' of giving birth if you had a c-section

TheABC Sat 30-Jul-16 17:53:04

Wow, OP, I am 9 weeks on and just reviving my sex life! It's a good idea to check with your community midwife about the bleeding though.

Okkitokkiunga Sat 30-Jul-16 17:56:20

Have you posted on another thread saying you are in internal pain and on antibiotics?

user1468244773 Sat 30-Jul-16 17:56:52

No I didn't go into labour, it was an elective X

user1468244773 Sat 30-Jul-16 17:57:45


Although I'm feeling better this afternoon/evening. I'm not sore from sex. It was the bleeding that worries me

dizzyfeck Sat 30-Jul-16 17:58:49

Well at least the unsexy blood bath might keep your partner off the idea even if you're game.
I know people, or one person who did it a few days after a vaginal birth. She's fine, well physically anyway grin
