The first word to think of natural labor is “pain”. Plus all kinds of TV dramas and the descriptions of past generations, many people are afraid of having children.

Some people think that caesarean section may not be so painful, so many mothers-to-be specifically requested to caesarean section. But is it really purple? Which method of cesarean section is more painful? Listen to what people say first?

Half an hour later, I had no feeling. But after sewing the needle for more than 1 hours, it felt really bad because the anesthetic had gone down.

_See that women really suffer! I am also smooth, compared to the process of life, the birth and completion of the seam wound is really painful, not anesthetics, that needle line pull, really a fucking sour! Pain to six parents do not recognize!

_Pain vomiting, really! Life is not as good as death! So that the side cut completely without feeling, I hope the doctor quickly side cut, so that further separation! Life really free, sewing needles do not feel pain, compared to the previous scream unusually quiet and peaceful, the doctor also praised me.

_I was cesarean section, with pain pump, is the nurse to press the stomach when the pain is particularly painful, I ache tears, maybe I pain point low!

At that time, it would not be painful after anaesthetic, and it would be better not to have cesarean section.

Anyway, no matter how you live, it always hurts. There’s no way to compare which one is more painful. Just give mommies two kinds of pain points to see which one is more acceptable.

Three major pain points of spontaneous delivery

1. private injuries

It’s hard to imagine the pain in women’s privacy caused by a natural birth, and it’s still pale to describe it in terms of grade 10. If the fetus is too large and embarrassed, the mother’s private area is at risk of tearing, and sometimes the doctor needs a lateral episiotomy to help with the delivery, the pain of needle and thread removal after the lateral incision is unspeakable.

2. urination and defecation pain

Much courage is needed for the first time to urinate after birth? The pain is so sour that many women are afraid that the pain will be tolerated without knowing that it is not conducive to physical recovery. The doctor advised pregnant women to face the first micturition and defecation.

3. postpartum uterine contraction pain

Contraction occurs not only in childbirth, but also postpartum. This is called postpartum pain. The purpose of postpartum uterine contraction is to help the uterus stop bleeding and expel residual blood clots from the uterus to promote the recovery of the uterus. Postpartum uterine contraction caused by the pain intensity is very large, sometimes need a doctor’s massage or hot compress to reduce some pain, therefore, a few days after the delivery of women had better lie in bed rest.

Three pain points in caesarean section

1. abdominal wound pain

Cesarean section does not just leave a knife scar on the belly, but also a wound in the womb, which can cause severe pain if not cared for properly.

About two to three weeks after the scalpel is scarred, the scar begins to grow, and the area becomes reddish, purple, and hard, with the skin protruding. Wait until the color of the wound becomes dark brown, the scar will appear itching, the new mother to keep the scar clean and hygienic, timely wipe sweat, do not scratch with hands, use clothes to rub the scar or water scalding method to stop itching, lest aggravate local stimulation, promote connective tissue inflammatory reaction, causing further itching.

2. pain in catheter.

Caesarean section requires catheterization, many mothers feel more painful catheterization, the first feeling of swelling, then a little pain. After the baby is born, the catheter must be kept for 24 hours, so the new mother needs to stay in bed and turn over carefully, otherwise accidentally pulled down and need to be inserted again.

Usually within 24 hours after the operation, the medical staff will pull out the catheter, encouraging lying-in women to urinate themselves out of bed. But if the mother is still unable to defecate herself, the doctor may insert the catheter again. It is important to note that after extubation, as long as there is a urinary intention should strive to self-relief, otherwise retaining the catheter is easy to cause urinary tract bacterial infection, causing new pain.

3. postpartum uterine contraction pain

Do not think that only spontaneous labor has contractions pain, in fact, caesarean section is inevitable. Generally after cesarean section, the doctor will help massage the uterus, at this time due to uterine contraction pain often intolerable, this is a normal phenomenon, generally without special treatment, 3-4 days after the pain will disappear. If you feel more severe pain, you can use hot compress in the lower abdomen, or take some Chinese patent medicine such as Chanfukang granules, Leonurus granules and so on. It should be noted that painkillers have little effect on postpartum uterine contraction pain.

After laparotomy, it is not advisable to lie on your back because the anesthetic effect disappears, the maternal wound will feel pain, and the supine position is most sensitive to uterine contraction pain, so you should take a lateral position, so that the body and bed into 20-30 degrees, the quilt or blanket cushion in the back, in order to reduce the body movement of the wound vibration and stretch pain.


To sum up, which pain is more painful in cesarean section of PK? The answer is all pain, but the pain point is different.

But, no matter how painful it is, it’s all about giving birth. You have to be confident that you’ve survived the pain of being ten months pregnant. The pain of giving birth will soon pass. When you see the baby born healthily, you’ll find that all the pain is worth it!
