In brief: After C-section
The uterus is a muscle that can rupture, or tear. Most commonly, uterine rupture occurs at the site of scar formation.
For example, after a woman has a cesarean section (in which the uterus is opened and stitched back together), a scar will form. This scar in the uterus could tear apart during a subsequent labor, increasing the chance of uterine rupture.
