I was like you I didn't take any pain meds excet the first night to sleep. To be honest, it's almost 6 months later and I still have a lil bit of pain when I bend certain ways and it's still numb around my scar.

As for bleeding I bled lightly for almost 6 weeks. And only started my period about a month later once I started on my bc pills.

I had a c-section with both my boys. With my first, I recovered nicely, but was infected for almost 7 weeks with my second.

Why did you have a c-section?

Cramps
This has nothing to do with a c-sec but it may help with cramps, I have really bad cramps an if you drink warm mint tea or make basil teas (4 to 5 freash basil leaves depending on how strong u want it, boil water an pour over leaves, leave to steep 15 to 20 mins add honey to sweeten) it usally helps with cramps, also good for upset stomachs even for children as young as 4, hope this helps u some
