If i was to end up having caesarean delivery, would obgyn be able to do surgery to "tie my fallopian tubes" at same time if i request it? I am 45 y/o.

If i was to end up having caesarean delivery, would obgyn be able to do surgery to "tie my fallopian tubes" at same time if i request it? I am 45 y/o.

Yes, but...: It actually is quite easy to do this at the same time. However, it is something you need to work out with your OB ahead of time. For instance, are you delivering in a religious hospital? Some won't allow tubals. What if the baby is ill or premature - do you still want to go through with the procedure? Your OB will guide you through the questions and the process so it can be done with ease. ...Read more

Depending on the location and growth of the uterus, it is more than likely that the placenta will not be a problem for a normal delivery. You doctor will likely want to additional ultrasound exams to make sure it moves out of the way. ...Read more

If amniotic sac is intact during vaginal delivery or c section, Are chances of AMniotic Fluid Embolisim basically zero chance?

If amniotic sac is intact during vaginal delivery or c section, Are chances of AMniotic Fluid Embolisim basically zero chance?

Yes: Actually, AFE is quite a rare event and, to a degree, independent of a patient's ruptured status. The general idea is that there is a breech and/or permeability of the of the natural blood-amniotic barriers. This allows products of pregnancy to, unaturally, enter the maternal circulation and cause catatrophic events (primarily in the lungs), culminating in death, oftentimes. ...Read more
