I felt compelled to start this due to my own experience having a uterine inversion when I had my son in 2011. After some quick searches and long talks with my doctors, I discovered that there is very little out there about uterine inversions and even less about having more pregnancies and births after one. My hope is to at least share my own personal experiences, a bit more unfiltered from what I would tend to post on my family blog, to potentially help anyone else looking for some clues on what expect for themselves.
UPDATE: June 2016 – A couple of things have become evident in the years since I started this blog and in staying in touch with my doctors. There is still very little information anywhere about inversions. Even worse, for those of us who had an inversion, there is almost no information about what to expect in the months and years afterwards. For me, personally, this is being compounded a bit by the fact that my doctor is pretty certain that I have endometriosis that is being expressed in a bit of an a-typical way (primarily shoulder pain).
Truth be told, I’m constantly amazed at how 10 minutes after the birth of my first child has seemed to have a lasting impact on me. This isn’t something I really broadcast or share with many people, most people have no idea, but it’s a recurring theme in conversations with my doctors.
Thank you for reading this blog. I have a feeling that if you are reading it, it is because we can relate on some level, and I sincerely hope this helps you gain some information or insight on your own experience.
