Rupturing Uterus C Section
1/1500: The chances of uterine rupture after one c-section is about 1/1500. It is rare but potentially deadly to both mother and baby if not acted upon quickly.

How soon after a C-section is it safe to get pregnant again, if you want another baby? Is the uterus at risk for rupturing if you get pregnant too soon?
Many factors: Most studies find risks of rupture more associated with type of uterine incision, numbers of layer closures, uterine defects, and also number of c-sections. Timing has a small role & it's believed risks are slightly higher if pregnant under a year. Ask your OB what your risks are & more importantly what shape your uterus was in at the time of c-section. Prior dehiscence or rupture are higher risks. ...Read more
I had a csection & my uterus ruptured almost 2 years ago &ever since then I have a very bad pain on my left side of my belly. Should i still have pain?
No: I'm so sorry that happened to you. It's possible that some residual scar tissue from that surgery is causing your pain. I would recommend you make an appointment with a gynecolgoist to discuss and have an exam of the area. It's hard to detect scar tissue on ultrasound or ct or mri, so you and your doctor should discuss possible treatments for your pain. Again, so sorry you are having this pain. ...Read more

How dangerous is a pregancy after uterine rupture? 1st baby born normally, 2nd c-section, 3rd vbac attempt which resulted in stillbirth.
How common is uterine rupture and is it always fatal?? I've had 1 vertical c-section and 2 horizontal, I'm not worried.
2%: The uterine rupture rate is about 1% in women with no uterine scars and 2% in those with previous uterine surgery and slightly higher in multiple surgeries. It is rarely fatal to the mother, but can be for the fetus. The type of incision in the uterus is the critical factor, not the direction of the scar on the abdomen. ...Read more
Can a retroverted uterus cause a woman to go for a c section? Or can one have a normal delievery with a retroverted uterus?
Normal delivery OK: A retroverted uterus is one that's tilted towards your back, rather than your abdomen; it occurs in 20% of women and does not have symptoms, RARELY associated with discomfort. It can't be prevented and there's no need to treat b/c it won't affect your fertility/ability to continue a pregnancy/have a vaginal delivery. It can only be a problem if caused by past surgeries/endometriosis, otherwise OK. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
