Welcome to icliniq.com.
I have gone through your query and can understand your health concern.
After cesarean section every woman experiences back pain for a few months, which is related to the surgery and spinal anesthesia. During surgery some of the nerves get cut while giving incision and this can give pain.
The other reason for pain is uterine contractions. But, eventually this pain gets subsided over a period of a few months.
One more cause for post cesarean pain is a deficiency of calcium in the body. Most of the calcium gets dissolved and secreted in breast milk and it causes weakness of bones and back pain. When this deficiency increases patient develops generalized body pain.
I would suggest you to check your serum calcium and vitamin D level. Also, you can do a bone mineral density test to know the condition of your bones. You can take calcium and vitamin D supplements.
For copper-T, consult your gynecologist and get it checked.
As you have mentioned that the pain increases during periods, this pain is due to uterine contractions which is exaggerated during periods.
I suggest tablet Meftal spas (Mefenamic acid) during periods, if you get severe pain. Consult your doctor, discuss with him or her and take the medicine with consent.
