Ok this is major TMI but I feel annoyed that my body has changed this much that I am wondering if anyone else is having these issues.
Since my C Section when i have my period I bleed in the FRONT of my pad. I have to move it up almost 50% further to the front then I would have in the past. Now I have to wear longer pads because when I sit my normal size pads wont work because I had to move them up so far. I have resorted to using tampons alot more often now.
I also have noticed a slow down on my regular bowel movements. I have to continue to eat oatmeal or take fiber tables so i dont get that bloated feelings. This is my 4th period and nothing seems to be getting better. My real concern is the first question as odd as it might be.
Is my uterus moved due to the c section?
I've had to change the position of my pads also. I never linked it to the c/s though. To be honest I can't really remember exactly where I'd placed it before, I just know its further up. I mostly stick to tampons when I can.
Also I've had to add more fiber to my diet. I'm not anywhere close to my normal routine yet. It took close to a year last time for things to get back to normal. I'm expecting that this time around also. I'm just happy that the worse part of that is over

i asked a friend who had a c section a year ago and she also noticed a major change in the 'direction' of her 'flow' and had to move her pads way up too. It would be interesting if anyone who has had a VBAC noticed it go back to normal.
If and when I did use pads I had to move my forward too, it's most likely due to the positioning of your uterus after a c-section. However I'm not fully sure so don't quote me on that. I mostly use tampons with my flows though.
