Lina, I'm going to have another c-section. Already spoke with my doctor. We'll start TTC at the end of May. Wow. SO so so soon...but it could take months/years for me to get pregnant again. I'm not a spring chicken (but I did fall pregnant first week trying last time--don't think that is indicative of future though).
In the UK you cannot be told you are not allowed to VBAC.
You can VBAC no matter what your OB tells you.
Mine said you do know it is dangerous? to which I replied it was safer than a repeat CS and I was aware of the risks AND benfots and I never went back to see him again.
It probably is better to wait a little longer after a CS, I certainly wouldnt recommend getting pg within a couple months but so long as your not over doing things theres no reason another pregnancy would be endangered.
thanks chuck - maybe i could ask to be induced early? and monitered would tht reduce risk of all the rupturing stuf?
From what I've read induction is more risky than going into labour naturally. The most recent data suggests a risk of 21 in 10000 for uterine rupture in women who've had a csection previously. I believe the risk is highest if you get pregnant within 6 months of your section (hmmm technically I might be guilty of this... but hoping for HBAC or VBAC in water.)
Probably heard all this before but we were advised not to TTC until Jessamy was a year old cause should be fully healed by then and unless medical emergency we've also been told I won't be induced again (like last time) because of the risk of rupture.
Exactly what I want tbh, only newly pregnant but planning to refuse induction this time round if possible and TRY and have a natural birth damnit haha!
Hope this helps x
