Women Less Likely To Conceive Post-Caesarean

Women who delivered their firstborn by caesarean were less likely to conceive again //than those who had a spontaneous natural delivery says a new British study.

Researchers led by Siladitya Bhattacharya at the University of Aberdeen, Britain, followed women who had their first single child - multiple births were excluded - between 1980 and 1997, reports newscientist.com.

The 17-year study on 25,000 women found that 66.9 percent of mothers undergoing caesarean went on to have another pregnancy, compared with 73.9 percent of women who had spontaneous deliveries, it said.

They took an average of 36.3 months to conceive a second child, compared with 30.4 months taken by women who gave birth naturally.

And they were more likely to suffer an ectopic pregnancy next time around, with 9.5 occurring per 1,000 pregnancies, compared to 5.7 per 1,000 pregnancies for women with spontaneous delivery.

Future studies may help explain whether this fall in conception rate following a caesarean is due to women who undergo the experience being less likely to try to conceive again, or whether they have more difficulty conceiving again, say the researchers.

Medindia on Pregnancy: Pregnancy is the state of union between a sperm and an ovum in the uterus, the formation of a fetus that is nurtured in the mother's womb. Pregnancy covers the entire time frame of 40 weeks; from the minute the fetus is conceived to the moment of the birth. Being pregnant is a totally different feeling for the would-be mothers, whether they are first time pregnant or having a second, third, and fourth child.
