Placental abruption , induction of labor

User Profile
is placental abruption a risk factor of induction of labour with prostins? I was on my 2nd day of induction and I was in agony but only 3cm, they left me for 2hrs 30 mins without monitoring, when my bag of membranes was pushed out intact they checked the fhb, it was 70bpm, i had an emergency section but although the abruption was only partial it was too late for my little boy. I feel like I was given drugs that put me into labour that killed my poor baby.Although I was only dialating slowly my contractions were very strong and very painful and very close together.

Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!

I am really sorry to hear about your loss. If the membranes had ruptured for more than 24 hours and the induction was in process then yes it can cause separation of placenta from the uterus. Take care!
