• Urinary tract infection may occur due to catheter insertion. However, thanks to the use of antibiotics, postnatal complications due to life-threatening infections are less than two percent.

• Painkillers used for pain control during anesthesia and after cesarean section can also affect bowel function. In the first 24 hours after surgery, patients may have nausea and abdominal tension.

• During pregnancy and postpartum period, the possibility of blood clotting in the blood of the patient's body increases and the risk of vascular blockage increases. Obesity, limitation of movement, maternal age and increased number of births are among the other factors that increase the risk of vascular obstruction. This risk, which is seen in 0.24 percent of all births, increases more after cesarean delivery.

• Blood clotting in the vein and vascular occlusion due to this condition manifests itself as unilateral tenderness, redness and swelling of the legs.

Can a woman who gives birth by caesarean section give birth later?

If the woman does not have a problem that prevents her from having a normal birth, if the reason for the previous cesarean section is not permanent, normal birth can be tried at the next birth. Conditions such as severe hip stenosis, trauma or rupture at birth, and not being prepared for emergency conditions make it impossible to try normal birth after cesarean section. In cases where more than one cesarean section is performed, normal birth should not be tried.
