Can having multiple c sections affect fertility or cause early menopause?

Can having  multiple  c sections  affect fertility  or cause early  menopause?

Not likely: Multiple c/sections do not cause early menopause. Multiple c/sections are unlikely to cause infertility unless there there was a complication such as an infection, lots of blood loss or an injury to the fallopian tubes. Otherwise fertility is not affected by c/sections. Multiple c/sections do slightly increase your chances of complications during pregnancy such as abruption and accreta. ...Read more

What can cause vagina/bladder/anal pain after cesarean section?

What can cause vagina/bladder/anal pain after cesarean section?

Several things: The Cesarean section itself should not involve the bladder or the rectum. However there may be a irritation of the bladder from possibly having a catheter at the time of the procedure. It is also possible to have developed a urinary tract infection. One reason for anal pain could be constipation from pain medication if one was taking Percocet or Vicodin or something similar. There are of course surgical complications that might account for the complaints. For that reason it is important to speak to your obstetrician so that a definitive diagnosis can be made. ...Read more

Cervical Stenosis Hematometra post menopausal pelvic pain Fibroids.Dr wants 2wait 6wks b4 D and C. No thickening or blood. Can this resolve by itself?

Cervical Stenosis Hematometra post menopausal pelvic pain Fibroids.Dr wants 2wait 6wks b4 D and C. No thickening or blood. Can this resolve by itself?

Possibly yes: If your cervix is stenotic, you can accumulate "fluid" in your endometrial cavity which may be mucus, not blood? Bleeding will usually not occur if your cervix is closed The fact that " no thickening" of your endometrium was noted on sonogram is reassuring and means you probably do not have " hematometra" and that the "fluid" may resolve spontaneously in weeks to months.Ask for an office Pipelle ...Read more

How common is bowel obstruction aftrer c section?

How common is bowel obstruction aftrer c section?

Very, very rare: A true bowel obstruction is a mechanical blockage of the small intestine, usually due to scar tissue (adhesions) from prior surgery. An ileus is a functional obstruction of the intestine often due to inflammation within the abdominal cavity. While I have seen women with an ileus after c-sections, the only time I have seen a woman with an obstruction was associated with crohn's disease. ...Read more

What Does posterior placenta in Upper uterine seg with grade 2 maturity in 32 weeks pregnancy scan indicate? Does it mean a c section will b needed

OK and no: C-section is done through the anterior approach. Knowing that the placenta is posterior means it is safe to do a routine c-section but does NOT mean it needs to be done. Vaginal deliveries are always better than C-section unless there is an indication for the C-section. Ask your OB about these indications. ...Read more

1. Does gestational diabetic causes c section? And early delivery (before due date)

No and Yes: Having gestational diabetes does not mean that you will have to have a cesarean section. Lots of gestional diabetics deliver vaginally. Important to control your blood sugar because uncontrolled diabetes can lead to large babies which do need a cesarean. All gestational diabetics on medication typically deliver by 39 weeks or undergo induction at 39 weeks. One week prior to one's due date. ...Read more

How often does placenta accreta go undiagnosed even after a csection delivery?

How often does placenta accreta go undiagnosed even after a csection delivery?

Placenta accreta: A previously undiagnosed placenta accrete may be diagnosed at the time of a cesarean section. This would occur when the OB is trying to remove the placenta but cannot because it is attached (accreta). On the other hand, if the placenta detaches easily, the uterine cavity is always explored so it would be rare to have an attached placenta left behind but a focal placenta accrete could be missed. ...Read more

Hi am looking at options for removal of a large fibroid that on the uterus approx 6cm in diameter, was told a C section is the only way, but I don't want a C section, advice much appreciated. Thank you.

Fibroid: 6 cm diam.: Unsure how a "C-section" is applicable, unless you are currently pregnant. If so, at delivery, the fibroid can be surgically removed at the same time. Otherwise a "fibroid" of this size (about 3 inches) , us not necessary to remove unless causing pain and discomfort. At 46, when menopause occurs, the fibroid will shrink considerably. ...Read more

36 weeks preg. Baby is normal. Cephalic.Whether a c- section or normal delivery is good for me? I had a prev myomectomy removed very small fibroids(2cm)

Operative report: Having a c-section after a myomectomy is dependent on the extensiveness of your surgery. If your surgery required entry into the inner uterine lining, then you might be at a higher risk of uterine rupture with a normal vaginal delivery . However your fibroids seem very small , unlikely to have done significant damage , especially if laparoscopic. Check with your ob; i'd lean towards vag delivery. ...Read more

Fibroids and birth: Woman can usually have natural birth when there are fibroids. When the fibroids are larger and in the low part of the uterus, they are more likely to interfere. They can cause obstruction, bleeding and increase the risk of ruptured uterus. Your OB can help determine if c section is necessary. ...Read more

your doc : Who did the myomectomy shoudld have told u that after the surgery when u had your post op check or sooner ! it depends where the fibroids were removed from, if they had to cut into the endometrial cavity or close to it then u will need a csection, but u need to ask the doc who removed the fibroids. ...Read more

Had myomectomy-lap 7 months back.Removd 2 fibrds 3*4cm submocus intramural.Now pregnant 16 wks.Is it must to deliver through c-section after myomectomy?

It might be: A c/s is generally recommended following a myomectomy that required entry into the endometrial cavity of a full thickness myometrial repair. The doctor that did the myomectomy is the person that can best advise about the need for a c/s. If they recommend that you have a c/s then i would recommend that you have a c/s. If the doctor is not available then your OB should review the op note. ...Read more

Hi, I am 38 yrs old having a fibroid of 6 × 5.2cm in size. Should I leave it on its own or is it going to cause me trouble?

Not a problem!: Fibroids are kind of like knots in a tree. They're an irregular pattern of growth in the wood grain but they're not cancer and really shouldn't be removed unless you're worried about pressure symptoms, bleeding, or fertility. http://mediphors.tumblr.com/post/106746799535/fibroids-in-the-uterus-are-like-knots-in-a-tree-or ...Read more
