  • My daughter is 2 in August and mine is basically invisible. People can’t even see where the scar is now! It has been this way for over a year!

  • 14 months on and mine is still reddish colour.
    Thinking of using bio oil

  • I had a c-sec done 6 years ago and my scar is STILL red. It’s hideous, but nothing wrong with it.

  • Mine took years, though I didn’t really notice it too much as my belly hides it, the loose skin. I was surprised it did become unnoticeable, I thought it would be red and obvious for life. Now, if there wasn’t an indent with normal skin then loose, overstretched balloon type skin on either side, you wouldn’t know. Totally faded. Last time I had an ultrasound the lady only knew because she could see my internal scar. I think it would differ for everyone how it ends up.

  • Yes! Being sleep deprived and up all night has huge impact on your relationship.

  • I’m 5years post csection. My scar has faded to a white scar now. It took may be 6 months to a year to go from red to white scar.
