2. Risks that can be encountered when pregnancy returns too early after cesarean section

2.1 Cracking old incisions if two pregnancies are too close together

Especially for pregnant women returning after cesarean section for 1 year or even shorter. The old surgical scar that exists in the uterus may not have fully healed, as the size of the fetus grew, the uterus had to expand making the incision susceptible to podiums.

Although the cracking of incisions during pregnancy is not encountered by any pregnant woman, there is certainly a certainly high rate and usually occurs in the last months of pregnancy. Therefore, if the pregnant woman "breaks the plan", she must absolutely comply with the requirements of the doctor, remember the abnormal warning signs to enter the hospital in a timely manner. The cracking of old incisions will mainly endanger the mother.

2.2 Increased odds of comb teeth

Comb teeth are placenta phenomena that cling tightly to the intra-uterus. During the crossing, the doctor will have to find a way to peel off the placenta, which will increase the risk of bleeding at birth and increase the risk of having to have the whole uterus removed for pregnancy in the worst case.

2.3 Nesting on old scars

This is the phenomenon of the fetus forming and clinging to the old surgical scar that puts the pregnant woman at high risk of bleeding at birth, in bad cases it may be necessary to have a cut of the uterus after the pregnancy to prevent bleeding. It can be seen that if 2 cesarean sections are too close together, the mother will face serious health risks, even life-threatening.

2.4 Incision hemorrhage during pregnancy

As the fetus gradually grows over time, the uterus of the pregnant woman will dilate, which can cause the old stitches to tear or stretch leading to hemorrhage. This can occur early from the middle 3 months or occur in the last 3 months of pregnancy.

3. When is it possible to get pregnant again after cesarean section ?

According to obstetrician doctors, to ensure safety after cesarean section, mothers should wait a minimum of 18-23 months to get pregnant again, it is best for women to get pregnant for the second time from 2-3 years, this is the necessary time for the uterus scar to fully recover. If the pregnant woman is older (>35), it is possible to get pregnant again a little earlier, however it is still necessary to consult a doctor before planning to have the next baby after the previous cesarean section.

4. If the pregnancy is too close, should it be broken or not?

Besides mothers who insist on keeping their babies, there are still many who have hastily decided to "quit" without knowing that this can be a negative and less safe option.

The problem is not only heavy psychology, but also physical risk. When the surgical scar is very new, every procedure that affects the uterus at this time – including "quit" the pregnancy can be a cause of the scar worsening, affecting the problem of reproduction later. On the other hand, the existence of scars can also increase the risk of accidents during abortion, including medical abortion with drugs.

  2. Choose a place to give birth as well as your surgeon if possible. Cesarean section is usually not a difficult technique, but in fact there are also difficult cases. Doctors who operate on multiple socks will operate faster, but surgery too quickly or too long is not good. Not a cesarean doctor 15- 20 minutes is a good surgeon, cesarean section needs from 30 minutes – 1 hour depending on each case. If a surgeon has a scar and a lot of incision condensation, the doctor will not operate well. Many people think that, especially doctors, the cause is the patient's location but also according to Dr. Chien Surgical Techniques plays a decisive role.
