A cesarean scar pregnancy (CSP) is a rare type of ectopic pregnancy that does not have any obvious signs or symptoms. However, the gestational sac in CSP is often embedded in the myometrial scar from the previous cesarean section. We report two cases of CSP in women with a history of cesarean sections who experienced profuse vaginal bleeding. The patients underwent hysterectomy at their own request due to devastating bleeding. CSP is one of the complications of cesarean sections. The patient may present with devastating bleeding, and immediate management is necessary. In a woman who is early into her pregnancy and has a history of cesarean section with profuse vaginal bleeding, CSP is one of the possible diagnoses.
