    c-sections and fertility (for the drs)
    numberonemommyof2 posted:
    well i have had 2 c-sections and currently trying for #3. in doing some research i read that having c-sections esp multiple ones can cause infertility. i was wondering if thats true, and what are the %'s of it happeneing. anyway to boost myself to fight through the scar tissue?
    wantingbaby123 responded:
    I am wondering the same exact thing. I also have had two previoust c-sections and am currently TTC #3. I did talk to my dr about TTC#3 and she just told me to wait a year after my last one and that my third child would definitly be another C-section. She never mentioned the chance of infertility. I have heard of women having four or five c-section. I personally think it may be a case by case situation. Everyone's body heals differently. I am so afraid of something being wrong with me now.

    Can't wait to hear what the experts have to say.

    I think it is a case by case situation. I am the same, I have had 2 sections and trying for #3. After my 2nd son, I had 2 m/c. We have been trying for 7months. SO we are going to see a fertility doc. Wish us luck! I wish you all luck and baby dust. I hope our situation is an easy fix.
