Has anyone had a uterus rupture? Mine ruptured at 8 weeks and my doctor hasn't really given me any good or useful info about it? I've heard of it happening late in pregnancy but not early. Has anyone had this and if so were you able to have a successful pregnancy? My doctor has told me not to try but then she said if I do try wait 6 weeks???? I basically would like to know if anyone has gone through this, I feel like I can't get any info on it. I really want children, and I am only 29. I am looking to see a specialist soon. Maybe they'll have some answers...Thanks for any help you can give me.
This is something I found about ruptured uterus's.
However as I've tried to look up information it seems that it is rare for your gestation. Have you tried to speak to your doctor about what happened more in depth? Do they just not have answers for what happened or are they lacking the ability to answer more questions you have?
Thanks for the response, the website you listed was helpful. My doctor doesn't seem to know why it happened. I did have previous ectopic and maybe the surgery weakened my uterus. I am just keeping my hopes up that I can have a successful pregnancy all the way to term. I am keeping my fingers crossed. I will keep you posted.
I just read your reply on another thread and I'm just amazed that you've been able to maintain your positive attitude!! I would definitely consult with an RE at this point, if it were me. Sorry I don't have any answers to your question, but just felt compelled to reply.

Thank you for the terminology, it really helps when I am navigating through the site.
As soon as I hit my six weeks I plan on going to an RE. I have a follow up with the surgeon who did my surgery on the 26th.....Wish me luck.
I also want to say thanks to everyone who and might still respond to my concerns. It really helps to know there are other people who have gone through similar situations. I don't feel so alone.
