I want to ask. 8 years ago I had hydrocephalus surgery and the hose was put in because of an accident and a collision occurred .. if I get married will it not interfere with pregnancy and childbirth?

Hello Nurul, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com

Surgery to treat hydrocephalus or what is called a VP shunt is known to have the potential to have several long-term effects on fertility and pregnancy. Several studies have shown that women who receive VP shunt therapy have a more difficult risk of getting pregnant due to adhesions in the reproductive organs due to surgery, infection, irritation of the peritoneum, etc. Women who successfully become pregnant also have risks such as blockage of the VP shunt and recurrent hydrocephalus.

However, most women who receive VP shunt therapy can still get pregnant, go through pregnancy, and give birth without any complications. We recommend that before you plan a pregnancy, you first discuss it with your obstetrician, and during pregnancy it is recommended that you always have regular checkups with your obstetrician.

So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
