How long can I get pregnant again after caesarean section?

Generally speaking, you can get pregnant again after giving birth at intervals of 18 to 23 months, which is about the same as the time when you can get pregnant again after giving birth.

This seems to be a long time, However, new mothers who have just given birth and have undergone a major surgical operation need to recover and supplement the nutrients lost during pregnancy. For example, due to the transfer of iron in the body to the baby and placenta during pregnancy, coupled with the large amount of blood lost during childbirth, postpartum women may suffer from postpartum anemia.

Research shows that women who become pregnant again within 6 months after delivery will face a series of risks, such as uterine rupture, premature delivery, low birth weight babies, etc. Moreover, it also takes some time to adapt to how to be a parent before welcoming another child. Learning how to be a parent by oneself will bring a better start to the next child’s life.

If you are pregnant again within 18 months of giving birth, don’t panic. A minimum of 18 months between pregnancies is only a guide to risk reduction. In fact, many women get pregnant again earlier and there is no what problem.

But age can be a problem. If you are in your 30s, the interval between getting pregnant again after a caesarean section can be controlled between 9 and 12 months. Women over 35 are more difficult to get pregnant again, and the risk of getting pregnant again increases with age.

Generally speaking, the best time to get pregnant again after caesarean section varies from person to person, and it is best to consult an obstetrician before making a decision.
