  • The uterine rupture rate in an unscarred uterus is approximately 1 in 10,000 (0.01%). The uterine rupture rate for a low transverse or unknown incision type is between 0.3% and 0.7%. Vertical incisions in VBAC are anywhere from 1% to 7% rupture rate, and J or T incisions rate around 9% in VBAC. The uterine rupture rate with repeat cesarean section is 0.02%. The odds of rupture go up with the use of inducing drugs as the PP said.

  • it depends here are rates for different c-sections:

    higher if you have inducing drugs.

    i don't know what it is without prior c-section but it is significantly lower. very very low
