Pregnancy after a C-section: How to boost your chances

Pregnancy is a unique experience. You'll start missing the nine-month pregnancy as soon as you deliver the kid, and you'll want to get pregnant again as soon as possible. However, if you had a Caesarean section, you may need to wait longer than usual before planning your next kid and doctors usually recommend a year.

The recovery time for a Caesarean section is different for each woman because it is a significant abdominal surgery. The longer time you give yourself to recover, the less likely you are to have difficulties during your next delivery.

Here are risks associated with getting pregnant after a C-section

This is caused by a low-lying placenta or a total separation of the placenta from the womb, and it can be a dangerous issue.

2 Risk of uterine rupture

Vaginal birth after a C-section can increase the chance of uterine rupture, especially if the time between pregnancies is too short because the tearing of your previous C-section scar is still fresh.

Here are ways to boost your chances after a C-section

1 Keep track of your menstrual cycle

Your body requires some time to return to normal after delivery and your monthly cycle may be affected by hormonal changes following pregnancy. It is important to keep a close eye on your cycle to figure out when you're most fertile. When you see a distinct trend, your chances of becoming pregnant improve.

2 Do not overlook your lifestyle

Following your C-section, adopt a healthy lifestyle, maintain a nutritious diet, exercise regularly, manage stress, and refrain from smoking and consuming alcoholic beverages. A healthy lifestyle improves your mood and makes it easier to conceive.

 Do not engage in sexual activity to have a child. Relax after having sex and enjoy the procedure and allow the sperms to swim across the cervix by lying down for around 15 minutes.
