Re: Effects of abdominal scarring/adhesions on pregnancy.

Kat, I had pre-term larbor from 5mos. on, from my adhesions and my uterus started to tear so I was on bed rest the rest of the pregnancy. I delivered at 32 weeks a baby girl who had some complications but you wouldn't know it today she's a beautiful, healthy, happy 18 year old. Good Luck. Kathi

I would also like to know the answer to this. I had a laproscopic surgery following a car accident, and then two years later developed bowel blockage as the result of abdominal adhesion, and had a second emergency surgery. That was one year ago. I am thinking of trying to become pregnant in the next year or two, and wonder how my scarring will effect my pregnancy, and vice versa.
