Hi Diana,


Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

Need to clarify, in what way your previous delivery was done? What is fault?


In women who have had a cesarean section, pain and cramping in the abdomen, especially on the left, may occur related to a history of previous operations. Usually, complaints arise due to excessive strain in the area of ​​the surgical site. As a result, the skin from the previous surgery, which is mostly composed of scar tissue, can feel painful. Complaints can worsen, for example, if you are overweight or obese.


It could also be that the pain, cramps in the left side of the abdomen that you experience arise due to other causes, for example related to disorders of the skin, muscles, or internal organs that are shaded. Here are some possibilities:

Urinary tract infection

Ovarian cysts (fluid-filled sacs in the ovaries)
Bladder stones

Constipation (constipation)

Inguinal hernia (protruding bowel due to weakened abdominal wall)
Kidney infection
Kidney stones
Premenstrual syndrome
Birth control side effects, for example IUD
Dyspepsia (increased stomach acid), and so on

Apart from pain and cramps, do you have any other complaints, such as fever, vomiting, urinary disturbances, menstrual disorders, and so on? If so, you should immediately consult a doctor for further evaluation. It is also possible that your doctor will recommend that you undergo blood tests, x-rays, or ultrasound to determine the possible cause of your complaint.


In the meantime, if you are breastfeeding, avoid taking drugs indiscriminately so as not to affect your milk production. You can use a warm compress on the aching stomach to make it more comfortable. Limit first consuming spicy or gassy foods. Limit also lifting objects that are too heavy or doing sports that involve excessive contraction of the abdominal muscles.


Hope it helps ya..
