HI. I just need to find out more information on how a broken pelvic bone will affect future planning of pregnancy. Almost 2 years ago I was struck by a vehicle that broke my pelvic bone in atleast 2 places. I was told that this could affect the possibility is me being able to carry a child, that if my pelvic bone was strong enough I would only be able to give birth by C-section & that there is a strong possibility of being bed ridden/ mostly off my feet through out the pregnancy. I would like some opinions please & if possible be directed to some medical sites that could give me hard information.

As far as I know there are two major concerncs for pelvic fracture patients during pregnancy
Patients in later stages of pregnancy are at increased risk for complications.
Risk of placental abruption and uterine rupture is great.
