Kim Kardashian has made no secret that she’s desperate to get pregnant with her second child. She and husband Kanye West have been actively trying to get pregnant for nearly a year with no luck. Now, Kim is revealing that she suffered a rare medical condition after giving birth to daughter North West.
According to Hollywood Life, Kim’s placenta did not detach properly after giving birth to North. If this happens again in any future pregnancies that Kardashian may have, then it could prove to be very dangerous for Kim. The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star would likely have to have emergency surgery following the birth which would mean she would have to have her uterus removed, taking away her chances of ever having another pregnancy. An OBGYN explained the situation to the website.
“This is called a ‘retained placenta’ and it’s bad because there’s no reason for the placenta to stay in the uterus when the baby is born. It’s a freak of nature, it’s rare but it can happen. Part of the process after one gives birth is the doctor looks at the placenta because you don’t want any part of it to remain in your body. It can block the uterus from contracting to it’s pre-pregnancy size and cause bleeding. The doctor can manually remove it right there or later with surgery.”
“There’s a higher chance if you have a retained placenta that you will have it happen again, but there’s no guarantee. If it does happen again it depends on how much is attached and if they can’t get it out. Very often the doctors can go in manually and remove it. If they can’t then they can do a surgery at the birth and remove it then and possibly remove the uterus. What she is doing is what we all do, is go to the worst case scenario. This is the worst case.”
According to Life & Style Magazine, Kim Kardashian will find out more during a upcoming episode of her reality show and call her husband Kanye West on the phone to tell him the scary news.
“This doctor that I saw today told me every worse case scenario … he was like, ‘OK, when you have your baby, this will be your last one, the problem is your placenta grew onto your uterus.’ I was like, sitting there just crying.”
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, rumors are flying that Kim is also worried that Kanye’s past may come back to haunt them and a love child could be discovered and rock their lives at any point.
