6 week check up after c-section


Do you have to get an internal or anything? What happens?

I had mine at 8 weeks. They asked loads of questions than made sure I was healing properly. No internal though

They may or may not do one. It depends on when your last pap smear was. Then ask you questions and talk about birth control or whatever if you need it.

I have my appointment this week.

I went to my doc she had a quick check of my scar, took my blood pressure and some bloods. Was in and out again within 10 mins.

My doc didnt even ask about smear test (ive never had one at all) or about what contraception im planning on using.

lilysmum, pap smears are strongly encourage in Canada and the US as soon as you become sexually active.

I didn't have a pap at my 6 week check up after my c-section... but I was still bleeding a bit. I think it also has to do with weather or not you laboured and if you became dialated at all... not positive though.

no internal for me and I dilated completely and did lots of pushing! didn't check my csection scar either but they had seen it previously due to infection.
