Thin womb? Do i need to be worried?


I had my first c section with my first child and was told later on by the midwife that my womb was paper thin , she said this is to be expected in someone who has had 3 or 4 pregnancies but not in somebody who has only been pregnant once. She then failed to give me anymore information on the subject. So am a bit worried. To make it worse she then says 'i understand your only having c sections from now on'. I was like WHAT! Then she goes ' oh didnt you know? I'll double check that for you'. 2 weeks later i get a letter of apology saying there had been a mix up and i would be able to attempt vbac. I was just wondering if anyone else has thin womb and what this means? Feel pretty clueless x thanks

I have no experience, but my mum was told her womb was also Ďpaper thiní but that was a long time ago and after having me and my sister didnít plan on having anymore. She did have two sections but that was to do with other problems no the thin womb. Sorry I canít help more.

All wombs are stretched thin by the end of pregnancy, that's a frightening thing to say to someone.

I had a uterine tear only noticed during c-section #3, from adhesions and thinning uterine walls, but they said I'd be fine to try for another baby in a year or two if I wanted (I didn't, I had my tubes tied).

Im worried as ive heard it can make it difficult to get pregnant? That it has a big affect on implantation i know i shouldnt google everything but its got me down now one site said it can lower chances to 5% and carrying a pregnancy to term is unlikely my son was induced / crash section 3 weeks early due to lack of growth and waters and it says thin uterus causes less nutrients to get to baby uhh all over the place

Write to your surgeon and ask the question. That’s what I’m doing!

Sort of, I’ve had 4 CS and at my last was told my uterus was paper thin. Also told as long as I accept increased risk of accretia and praevia I could have another baby. But it was five years ago my youngest was born (almost 6) so I’m wanting to double check!

Never asked previously about uterus to be honest! All my babies went to at least 39w
