Does your C-section scar hurt when wearing certain things?

So I’m curious, mamas that have had a c-section, does your scar hurt when you wear certain things like jeans or leggings? Since my c-section the only thing I’m really comfortable wearing is sweat pants and I had it 5 months ago, I feel like a bum wearing sweats all the time, but it just feels irritated if I try to wear jeans or leggings :disappointed: any tips?

I had one 6 months ago and I’m experiencing the same thing. I can wear jeans and leggings but it does still feel numb and irritated sometimes. I honestly have no advice but just wanted to let you know you’re not alone!

Yes. It’s gotten better now, it has been 9 months. It gets better. My first c-section was was worse for healing wise. I do get pain every once in a while on my scare at random times.
But yes and it will get better. :blush:.

I had my c-section almost 9 months ago and the recovery for me was horrible. I basically lived in my robe and dress night gowns. It still feels a bit tender if i wear tight pants or take a hot shower but other than that it feels almost like nothing happened. It will get better momma!

I’ve had 2 c sections and dealt with that both times. It will go away. Once in a while I still get a weird sensation around the scar. I dont think there’s much you can do for it. At least I didnt know.

I’ve had 3. 10 years, 6 and 2 years. I still have numb feelings and from time to time it still aches. Especially when they weather changes. It’s something I’ve gotten used to.

It will get better. But most people will tell you that it can flare up and will always feel funny. There isn’t much you can do about nerve damage. I had one 7 months ago and avoid wearing underwear or pants that rest on it. Im now that mom that I used to make fun of for “hiking” their pants up like Steve Urkle. But it gets pretty comfortable lol.

Try after thirty years ago I’m numb and if I lay or sit in a certain way I get server pain and once fainted when ever I get an ultrasound done and they go over my scar it burns

My last section was 8 years ago and if anything touches my scar it hurts so much. I guess that’s one good thing about having a scar tissue pouch above my scar, it covers it unless I wear undies right on it but I don’t wear stuff that sits directly on my scar.

I’m 7 months pp and its still hard for me to wear normal underwear it hurts like crazy

Only issue I have is no feeling around my scar which I have had two csections so I’m sure it caused some nerve damage but no pain ! Give it some time !

Had csection 18 months ago. Still cant wear tight pants that sit directly on my scar. I can wear leggings if they are high waisted, but Jean’s are a nope

Try high wasted jeans and pants.

I would continue to wear the belly belt underneath over my cut so i wouldnt feel it when i would wear jeans or anything else that would irritate my cut.

I had two emergency c sections 12 and 11 years ago and was left with an over hang as my girls were big babies. I can’t wear any trousers with zips and it still hurts if I knock the scar.

I had mine 4 years ago and it doesn’t hurt but you can’t stretch it or press on it hard. It also itches sometimes. It will get better with time!

No by 5 months it felt fine

No it doesn’t hurt but sometimes it can take over a year to fully feel back to normal.

It’s been a year and a half for mine and it still gets a weird tingly feeling and itchy when I wear certain cloths.


I’ve not buttoned jeans in almost 2 years
