Hi I had my first cyst when my baby was 5 days old, had emergency surgery on them (yes had two at once) when she was 10days old where the wounds were left open an packed for 8 weeks.
I'm currently 31 weeks pregnant and have anouther cyst, I'm on antibiotics an had it drained under local wich was excruciating. This was two days ago an it's more painful than ever.

Anyone had this whilst pregnant? I can't imagine giving birth like this can i ask for a c section? This is my 5th baby all others have been natural births

Hey please let me know how you get on! My fiancé and I are planning to start our family sooner than later and I’m terrified of what’s going to happen during pregnancy and childbirth and if it causes my scars to reopen or I end up with wounds and needing more surgery x

Good luck with ttc ! I will post on here the outcome but so far my midwife is very concerned about vaginal birth, so I have a phone call from the consultant next week to discuss csection. The nurses that have been packing the wound seem to think that natural birth will be fine?

I only got cyst due to the birth of my 4th baby, surgery when she was 10 days old and this time at 7months pregnant. Only thing I can think is the weight I put on during these pregnancy's contributed to them?

Also just to add I need more surgery, due to pregnacy I couldn't have general anesthesic so had the procedure under spinal block x
