    Default Soo.. placenta attached to c-section scar.

    Does anyone know what it means if your placenta has attached itself to your c-section scar?

    ETA, mine is just suspected, going for an ultrasound, so I'm more just asking about it so I don't go googling it.

    Its glued its self to the internal side of your scar, my bladders donethe same to my scar.

    If you have a section with #3, they'll be cutting through placenta before they get to junior.

    Yeah, I asked why he needs it scanned etc and he said it isn't a problem during another c-section but there can be problems with it during pregnancy and a vaginal birth, and then he asked if I have had bleeding (I haven't). Hate when doctors are vague haha. I did one google on "scar stuck to c-section" and saw blurbs saying things like hysterectomy after c-section haha, so I decided rather than google Id just ask on here if anyone knows what it means or has had it.

    Can I ask how it was found out that your placenta was attached to your scar? Did you have any symptoms?

    I have had deep pain near my scar, but that can be normal too apparently so I'm not sure if it means anything, but the doctor checked where my placenta was after I told him about the pain and it was over my scar tissue so that's why it needs to be checked.

    I'm not sure how much you can tell without a good ultrasound or even an MRI. I'm going to have mine checked at an ultrasound soon, so I don't know that it is attached, it's just being looked into because of where my placenta is (over the scar, low and at the front) and the pain.

    Hope that helps! Sorry, I don't know anything about it - that's why I wanted to start the thread lol
