To start off: I ended up having to have a c-section. My doctor didn't feel comfortable with my previous OB's choice of wanting me to do a VBAC, and I'm glad I didn't go through with it. During delivery, there was a massive amount of damage done to my uterus - lots of tears and it was very transparent. The only thing that was holding the baby in was the amniotic sac. My doctor said that was very unusual. He compared the transparency to looking through a clean window. So, obviously, he had to do a lot of repairs. Well, a couple of weeks ago, I started exercising and started a dance class. I went to the class on Tuesday evening and, when I woke up yesterday morning, the lower left part of my stomach was aching so bad. So I took a couple of Tylenol and started my day. I thought it was just a pulled muscle. As my day went on, the pain got so much worse, and I couldn't lay down or sit down. My stomach was also starting to swell. Ice helped a little. Then, around 8 last night, I had to use the restroom, and the pain became so intense until I realized I was bleeding. Kinda freaked me out. With all that damage and repair that was done, is it normal for my periods to now be painful? They always used to hurt, but never like this.
