hiya - hope it's ok to add to this thread
I have HMS and have had 3 babies
1st - awful traumatic birth , missed brow position which was only found after 3 hours of pushing and 3 failed ventouse attempts - emergency section where I felt whole thing and was knocked out.
I apparaqntly had about 10 injections to stop the bleeding - lost 4000mls
really ill after and was in for one week
2nd successful VBAC which was fantastic, however I had a retained placenta and could feel myself drifting away, awful, had it manually removed with no pain relief which was torture - lost 2000mls. needed transfusion but felt fine
3rd elective section cause I wasn't going into labor myself. they were all aware of previous section and made sure I was given lots of spinal and I didn't feel a thing, lost 800 mls, felt blooming awful but they wouldn't give me a transfusion. I very nearly passed out on day 2 as I couldn't focus and almost collapsed - the care I got was awful but that's another story lol
anyway - I have always suffered heavy periods too and have been on 2 types of pills every month since I was 15 as I almost died from it. I was always sure this was connected to my PPH and this was before I knew I had HMS.
also all 3 of my babies were stuck in some way or other - first brow, 2nd and 3rd were back on back and stuck. was told I had a mis shaped pelvis and to get it checked - did any professionals want to investigate? no
I have no idea if all this is connected but I am gonna say it is.
