Tell Us Your Story:

I felt a pop in my chest and serious pain in my chest, shoulders, and jaw. I was told that I should not get pregnant ever again due to the higher risk of redissection.

Well I’m pregnant and I’m scared. Abortion is not an option for me. All the research I have tried to find doesn’t cover pregnancy after type A dissection or any dissection at all.
