I know there are creams that are supposed to help reduce scars and stretch marks, have you used any on your c-section scar? When did you start using it? What did you use? And how well has it worked?

I'm not prone to stretch marks, and the cut was bikini line (10 cm long) , so I didn't worry about it.

I did not. From what I'd seen/heard/read, they are miminally effective at best. I also did not ever plan on showing off that part of my body. Then there was my own squeamishness about the scar in general. I hated seeing or touching it. It freaked me out. I also had dissolving stitches working their way out for several weeks and it just plain hurt. So I didn't touch it unless I absolutely had to.

Nah. My husband put vitamin E on his knee scar, but that's in a much more obvious place.
