Hi,

Welcome to just answer. Can you give me some more information regarding your question -

- is the pin hole area in the scar of the C-section?

- any other symptoms like pain etc?

- are you on any medicines?

n the scar area and no to the other questions
Health Professional: Dr. Gupta, Doctor (MD) replied 8 months ago

Thanks for the information.

It seems that you might have developed a fistula in the scar area. This is a communication which develops between two organs or skin and an organ. The exact diagnosis can be evident only on examination and investigation, but from your description it seems that a fistula has formed between your skin in the scar area and the uterus. The fact that you get a mild bloody ooze during or after menstrual cycle, indicates the other end of fistula is in the uterus.

This needs to be confirmed by a surgeon and operated as soon as possible otherwise it can lead to complications.

Hope this information is helpful

Regards

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
