    Default Placenta praevia in subsequent pregnancies?

    I had grade 3 placenta praevia with my last pregnancy and DS was born by c section. Ended up with a PPH and had a bakri balloon inserted to help stop bleeding which thankfully worked.

    I'm pregnant again and just wondering what the chances are of PP happening again.

    So if you had PP once, did it happen in your other pregnancies? Was it more or less serious?

    TIA

    I had praevia to term with dd1 and didn't with dd2. I think I read somewhere it only increases your odds by about 2% if you've had it before.

    Not sure the odds, but if you have had a c-section, or have scarring from a D&C or other uterine surgery, it increases the risk...

    I had no issues with DD1, (other than a C-section birth) but have pp grade 4 with this pregnancy... Thinking the c - section and IVF EPU surgery may have contributed this time...

    Hope you don't experience it again!

    I didn't think about EPU having an impact...hmmm interesting.

    Neither did I! It wasn't until I was doing the whole "why me?" with the pp4 - I don't do cocaine, or smoke! Or have any of the other risk factors (I'm under 35 etc) that i realised a c-section 5 years ago, plus the EPU with a fresh transfer that resulted in a BFP probably contributed...! There would have been scar tissue (or healing) at the top of the uterus on both sides for the pick up and at the front from the c section... Not much un scarred space in a uterus that's the size of a small pear!

    Dont quote me 100%, but i thought you had the same chances of getting it with every pregnancy. I remember seeing somewhere that each pregnancy is different so you have no more of a chance to get PP with subsequent pregnancies.

    When you think about it, its all about where the egg sticks to the wall, which i thought was random. I thought the only increased risk was of the egg attaching to a csec scar.

    Higher as you get older, and if you have had uterine surgery (ie: previous c- section) ... It also Increases the risk of acretta too if it attaches to scar tissue as it is not as rich in blood supply, therefore the placenta needs to "dig deeper" for what it needs, there are heaps of articles - just google. If you have had it once (and required a c-section) that in itself will increase the chances of having it in subsequent pregnancies, by how much I am not sure - i haven't looked into it because I'm never doing it again! Lol
