Ive done a lot of research, both before and after i chose to ttc.
There is a higher chance of scar rupture if you fall pregnant within the first 6 weeks of a section, however after this point the chance of scar rupture is the same whether you wait 2 months or 2years. (I do have references but im not on my computer) However the risks of scar rupture are still relativily small, you are statistically more likely to have gestational diabetes, pre eclampsia.
There is more and more research being done but now in some european countries vba2c is becoming the norm. a lot of medics still quote the time which was recommended before lower section c-sections were performed.
However i also think that 9months is a good length of time to wait however i didnt take my own advice.
My views on close gaps between sections still hasnt changed even tho i did rupture, i realise im one of the tiny minortiy.
