Bleeding and high blood pressure during pregnancy. Done C-section. Why did placental abruption occur?

After 6 months (27 weeks) of pregnancy, got high blood pressure and bleeding started. My doctor said it was a case of accidental haemmorage where placenta and utereus got detached. i had to undergo an emergency ceaseran and my child could not be saved. now, I want to ask: 1) why placental abrupption occured when i had normal blood pressure in first six months? 2) HOw much time should i wait for the next pregnancy so that i don t have a ceaseran next time?

You had suffered from gestational hypertension, which occurs during pregnancy after the twentieth week usually, that had abruption as a complication. In view of the sudden rise in the blood pressure, the placental separation occurred. If the bleeding had been mild, conservative approach would have been taken, by simple observation and interfering only if needed. Perhaps you had severe bleeding that needed intervention. You should preferably wait for an year before you try to conceive again as you had a caesarean section. Also, meanwhile see that your general condition is good and your blood pressure remains normal. Soon after conception, you should get medical attention and take proper care. Good luck.
