C -Section Can Affect Next Pregnancy

Posted: Updated:
(NBC) Having a C-section may increase the risk for stillbirth or ectopic pregnancy the next time around. 

A new study looked at the pregnancy outcomes of more than eight hundred thousand women in Denmark. Researchers found those who had a C-section were slightly more likely to have an ectopic pregnancy or stillbirth the next time they got pregnant. However, researchers say the overall risk for these events is still very low.

The data also showed that the risk for miscarriage did not go up after a C-section.
