Anyway, we were told to wait a year!

I'm sure I was told 6 months but, like you remember getting different advice depending on who I spoke to.

Thanks girls, I really appreciate your replies, its been good to read the other threads def eye opener. I think we probably will wait to try until A is one and then go for FET after 6 months if it doesn't happen naturally. Gosh that will make me nearly 41!!!!!!!!! XX

Hi Alie

I am about to start another ICSI after a c-section, Archie is just over 9 months and I have been told that it is fine to try again.

Just goes to show how conflicting the advice can be. My RE advised that I wait at least a year before I try again - that said, though, I have not yet gotten to TTC2 and my little man is nearing 3 already...

My personal preference - regardless of c-section or normal birth - would be to time it so that the older child will be at least 2 years old when the second child arrives. One of the factors that makes me prefer at leat a 2 year age gap is that I was told that I would not be allowed to attempt a VBAC if I had a gap that is smaller than that and would be left no choice but an elective c-section...

The advice is very conflicting, a friend of mine has just had a VBAC, and she fell pregnant when her DD was 6 months old (they tried that early as it took 2 years for her to fall for DD)

ttc after caesarean

Not sure if this is the right place to post this but don't know what heading it should come under?
I was hoping someone may be able to advise me on when it will be safe for us to start ttc again after my caesarean? I have had conflicting advice from midwives and doctors with time scales ranging from 6 months to 2 years. Whilst we are in no rush at the moment to try again we don't want to leave it too late. It took us 3 years to get pg and had to have ivf due to unexplained infertility. I am now 37 and don't really want to risk being in my 40's to start having ivf again (if we need it).
We were hoping that if we both feel ready we would maybe start ttc again within the year but don't want to risk it if physically my body isn't ready due to the scars etc from the c-section.
How soon after a section have other's left it before ttc?

Hi,

I was told (repeatedly!) by the hospital not to get pregnant again for 12 months after my section. Hope that helps and good luck! xxx

[zx050] Scarlett! We were thinking of leaving it until about 9 months to start thinking about trying again so will probably be around a year before anything happens xfingers unless we need to have ivf again.

I was told to wait 12 months too, before TTC.
But I got the impression it wasn't a particularly big deal if you got pregnant before that, they might prefer to avoid a VBAC if it was less than 12 months, but not necessarily.

Do you mind me asking how long you left it and if you were ok? (Don't worry if you prefer not to answer, I won't be offended :) )

I was told 12 months, but I think that's so that you can have a natural birth....

Hi Rockchick,
My section was just over 7 months ago, and we are hoping to try again in January, which would be a 12 month gap. But that is mainly due to finances/my advancing age(!), rather than the timing of c-sections.

Does anyone know what the extra risks of having two classic c sections (very rare these days, where the cut is up and down on the womb rather than across) are? I would like to give my one frozen embie a chance at some point, and although the odds of a BFP are very slim, I'm really worried that it would be too much for my body if I did get pregnant. When the twins were born I was told that I would never be allowed a VBAC after the classic c section I had as labour could rupture my womb, unlike with normal c-sections where VBAC's are encouraged these days.

Hi Ros

Sorry I missed this. Having said that I don't think I'm going to be much help anyway!

First of all your best bet is to talk to your doctor or maybe even just run it past your HV next time you have contact with her. Why did you have it done that way? Only asking because if its an issue that would come up again, that might have an impact on the advice you're given.

I think though that its not being pregnant that would be the issue but the giving birth and you'd be booked in for an elective caesarean rather than be allowed to go for a VBAC. Or you might require more monitoring during a pregnancy?

Hope you get an answer ASAP - I'd be interested to know what it is!
