Research shows 4/10 women with VBAC may still have to have a c/section . These labors need to be monitored carefully in a hospital equipped to respond to an emergency during the labor and have experience monitoring VBAC patients. Talk to your OB for more advice ...Read more

Can I have an abortion 7 months after c section and being anaemic?

Can I have an abortion 7 months after c section and being anaemic?

Possible: A cesarean section is not a contraindication to an abortion, nor is anemia, however you may want to go to a provider who has associations with a local hospital in case there are complications, which would be very unlikely anyway as long as you are cared for by a trained professional. Safety is also dependent on how far along you are, so the sooner the better. ...Read more

28 wks pregnant, previous c section, placenta anterior, no acretta now- placenta is 4cm above c section scar. Could acretta still develop at this pt?

Yes but low risk: Acretta can develop even in women who have never had a c/section. Fortunately this is rare. The risk is much higher if the placenta is covering the prior c/section scar. With the placenta 4cm from the scar, your risk is very low (but not zero). Best wishes! ...Read more

I have never had problems until after my c-section now docs say i may have endometriosis is there a connection pain started 3 weeks post op 3yrs ago ?

Good question: Since endometriosis is the presence outside the uterus inside your belly of the tissue that lines the inside of the uterus which grows every month to prepare for potential fetus and then is sloughed as a period if there is no conception, one could imagine that after c-section some of that tissue could seed the abdomen - this is definitely a question for ob/gyn - doctors? ...Read more

This : This must be very stressful for you. Viability odds are not favorable at 23 weeks.

Spotting between menstral cycles after a c section 10 months ago.  Hormonal problem or ????  Yearly exams are normal.

Breastfeeding?: If you at breastfeeding it is common for you to have irregular periods or spotting between periods until a few months after your child weans. I usually advise my patients that they can expect about 6 months to a year of odd periods after birth. If you are otherwise healthy and your physical exam and PAP at normal I wouldn't worry too much. You could try birth control pills to help regulate cycles. ...Read more

I had twins 10 weeks early due to my lg who had blood flow problem and lying low placenta and my lb had a abrupt placenta what c section should I have?

It depends: What type of c-section should be performed in the pregnancy after a previous c-section depends upon the type of incision made on the uterus in the preceeding c-section and anything else that is going on in this pregnancy. Your OB would be the most prepared to answer this question and it would be a good idea to have that discussion with her/him since this could also effect the timing. Best wishes ...Read more

Issue after c-section i had a c-section about six weeks ago and I do not think my uterus has completely gone down to it's original size. I'm concerned that this may cause problems since my husband and i would like to start trying again for another baby in

Usually : Usually it takes 1 to 2 months for your uterus to involute or shrink down to a non pregnant size. However the size will always be larger after a term pregnancy and with a c-section the position of the uterus can change. It is only 6 weeks since your delivery so perhaps this is why but if it does not shrink soon you should go to see your health care provider to make sure there is not a uterine fibroid or other reason. Having a larger uterus because of a pregnancy does not prevent future pregnancies as long as the uterus is still a normal uterus. ...Read more

Incision pain: You are 14 weeks out and your incision should be well healed. Sometimes inflammation can cause pain and burning, also if any stitches are left behind as well. Healing is as a result of inflammation as well and tiny nerves can be sensitized in the process. HAve a discussion with your doctor. ...Read more
