I have had 6 mm perforation as well. It is in my fundus. It happened 2 years ago. When they did surgery 1 week after perforation they said it was well healed. During this pregnancy they did not measure thickness of the uterus there. Weird. My ob did not even send me to another specialist. I just talked to a couple of more doctors from the same practice. How far ago did your perforation happen before you got pregnant? Maybe it has to do with the time between perforation and...
I am 38 weeks now. Everything goes well so far. They do weekly BPP and NST to check on the baby. I am not sure if it is scar related, and they started doing it after I had decreased fetal movement one day. So far I have talked to 3 different OBs, and they all said it would be no issue with vaginal delivery, plus they :coldare gonna monitor me in labor just in case.

Yes, i have been to prenatal care with the same OB who perforated my uterus. She says there should be no problem with vaginal delivery, but I am still scared.

The OB who did laparoscopic surgery to remove IUD also said there should be no problem since the whole was small (that was the doctor from the same practice). I did not go to another doctor for a second opinion, since I would like to research it on my own first, that's...
Hi, I had my uterus perforated during IUD insertion. I had about 5 mm perforation in the fundus and did not need stitches, but there is still a scar. I am pregnant now, and my due date is about 2 years after perforation happened. I have been researching and read that fundal perforation could pose a risk of uterine rupture during labor and contractions. I am not sure what size perforations they are talking about, but I am scared out of my mind!  have also read that there...
