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?

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

Can I have a baby normal after a c section?

Mike Moore Dr. Moore
8 doctors agreed:

Yes, but concerns: Vaginal birth after c section = vbac, is often medically possible. After a c-section, the uterus has a scar from healing, that is the major concern. Even though the scar may not look bad before the uterus stretches, as your uterus expands for the growing fetus, the scarred area may become thin, with higher risk of tearing during contractions. Some hospitals decide that the legal risks are too high. ...Read more

Would uterine, cervical or ovarian cancer be noticed during a c section? C section 14 weeks ago. Bled after sex few times so am worried about cancer.

Would uterine, cervical or ovarian cancer be noticed during a c section? C section 14 weeks ago. Bled after sex few times so am worried about cancer.

No: Cervical cancer/ovarian cancer would probably not be noted at the time of a c/section. However, most doctors do screen for cervical cancer (a pap-smear) near the beginning of pregnancy care. So if you had cervical cancer it would have been picked up on this pap-smear. Ovarian cancer is not common at age 34. I'd see your doc about the bleeding but think cancer risk is low. Best wishes! ...Read more
