Currently i have no pains and any issues with my stomach. But i am scared is it fine if i get treated Hernia after my second pregnancy. My doctor told me that i have hernia , but it will no give me any pains as intestine is away from it. She told me in old times women let it be as it is , they used to keep it untreated. Please suggest what should i do . Is it needed to be treated or it is fine if i keep untreated

It's reasonable to have the hernia repair after you complete your family. A hernia repair may be disrupted by a subsequent Cesarean section and make the Cesarean more difficult.
