I have had 2 c sections, not sure about your shaving question but as for the bleeding mine stopped after about 10 days iirc, it definitely didn't last a month x

You only need one question mark when you want to ask a question.

Oh don't be mean*bibbity*.

OP - yes, do go and get check out by the doc but you should be okay to shave once the scar has healed up. Ask the doc while you're there.

thank you zippy,
more question mark to get your attention bibbity as i know tat the only think you can give advice for.

Bibbety - you are being pathetically and unnecessarily nasty. Is it a natural personality trait or have you had to cultivate it?

OP: sorry, I really don't know the answer to your questions.

Squiglettsmummy2bx Sun 04-Sep-11 12:02:36

Yes I would definitely go & see your gp just to check everything is healing ok.
Congratulations on your baby, hope you are enjoying being a mummy x

My understanding is that bleeding is the same post c-sec as for a normal vaginal delivery so a month later is perfectly normal (6 weeks is the average for post-partum bleeding). However you deliver your baby, you still have the same sized wound internally from the placenta. Don't know about the shaving though, I suppose the main issue would be ingrowing hairs causing an infection at the wound site or irritating the scar.

Bibbity does have a point though, however uncalled for others may find it. Excessive punctuation can detract from a perfectly good point or question, and in a thread title can put people off even opening it smile

thank you all for your advice,
and about the question mark, thats the way i like to put my questions if anyone have a problem with it, hope they will not write any message to me, as i find it wast of time to talk about it.
thats not the problem that i am rising or like to discuse, and everyone can post his message the way he want smile

I think you are being pathetically and unnecessarily nasty with your snidey "do you have to cultivate it" comment.

Op - if you like to put 4 to 16 question marks after a simple question then that's fair enough but if you want more attention and more answers then you will have more success if you post it in the conventional manner. That's all.

firstsupermum Sun 04-Sep-11 15:03:07

bibbity get over it, i dont need you to correct the way i am posting my message, that it up to me, I am old enough to decide what will be successful or not. you have your own way i have my one.

Alliwantisaroomsomewhere Sun 04-Sep-11 16:29:30

Bibbety: I know! Great, innit?????????????????? grin

firstsupermum you could try using some hair removal cream, the last thing you need right now is an infection or ingrown hairs.

Why not wait until you have had your 6 week check, ask your doc and go from there?

firstsupermum Sun 04-Sep-11 18:30:50

i dont have any appointment made for my 6weeks check scarlettlips it will be on the 8th, that means thursday, but i dont think they will send me any appointment for it, do i have to book it myself with my GB, as this is my 2nd baby, in my first, they didnt do 6 weeks check for me is well, i think every area do it different.

bibbitybobbityhat Sun 04-Sep-11 19:16:36

Lol!!!!!!! grin grin grin grin !!!!!!!!!!!!

Flisspaps Sun 04-Sep-11 19:20:36

firstsupermum In my area we have to book our own 6 week checks. Mention that's what it is for when you call the Doctors, as at my surgery there is only one GP who carries out the check on the baby. He spent about a minute looking over DD, and then asked me 'And are you OK?'

That was it!

firstsupermum Sun 04-Sep-11 19:54:07

thanks i will do that

BecauseImWorthIt Sun 04-Sep-11 19:57:27

Never mind all those question marks, I'm more concerned about why you are wanting to shave at this point in time.

firstsupermum Sun 04-Sep-11 20:10:15

i think there are a lotof things that the personne need to know and be sure about before doing it after c/section, for me thats one of them, when it ok for someone to shave, i had my first c/section but i forgot about all that, why persone want to do it? as part of hygiene for me. so i have to make sure when its safe.

I find it odd that you sound more literate in some posts than others - a different 'voice' grin

Bleeding 3/4 weeks post-partum is very normal.

TooImmature2BDumbledore Sun 04-Sep-11 21:44:07

The last thing I would do post-section is put hair-removal cream anywhere near the scar! I can't imagine it would be good for it. Careful shaving, perhaps, but definitely not Veet.

BecauseImWorthIt Sun 04-Sep-11 22:03:07

I think at your stage post-partum, your personal hygiene will be taken care of by daily bathing or showering.

LoveInAColdClimate Mon 05-Sep-11 07:33:36

You do realise pubic hair is actually there for hygienic purposes, OP? If that's the only reason you're worried about shaving, stop worrying and enjoy your baby! You really don't need to shave to be clean, showers and baths will be fine.
