placenta problems

when I had my last daughter 8wks ago ( bub #3).. I had a c section due to placenta previa when bub was born & the doctors were trying to remove my placenta they discovered I had placenta accreta.. I had to have blood tranfusions because of blood lost.. what my question is what causes this accreta & would it ever happen again(even thou im finish having kids) also will it muck up my menstrual cycle??

Answer: Hi, There is no known cause for this condition though it occurs more often in women who have had caesareans. It should not much up your menstrual cycle but it may make your periods heavier for a short time. Best wishes, Alex
