Pregnancy after Placental Abruption?

I had a concealed abruption with my first (2010), and a mild/severe one with my second(2011).
The bleeding began with my 2nd, about the 18th week of pregnancy and followed through to continue through 30 weeks.
My question is this : Has anyone experienced this and still gone through with the risks of a 3rd pregnancy?

My doctor has been extremely non-helpful and seems to always leave the conversation open ended and never fully answers my questions. I am not planning a 3rd, but I want to weigh my options - as I am now divorced and in a serious relationship with someone that I could see myself having more children with. My main concern is my health - for the reason of having two children already and them being in my full care and needing me (obviously) but my other concern is - no one seems to know what causes placental abruptions.

I do not fit any of the "risk factors" - to my knowledge, I have no "health concerns" - and I am only in my mid twenties. I have a very healthy eater, in fairly good shape, and no one in my family has had any pregnancy issues similar to mine.

Would you take the risk?
Has anyone found an underlying health problem that seems to be linked with their placental abruptions?

While I do appreciate your sentiments, unfortunately - I did not fully explain my circumstance. I am afraid to try.
My daughters were both healthy almost full term babies - however, my youngest (the one that I had the severe abruption with) - she had a 20% chance at 20 weeks, and I had a 40% chance of survival.

With that being said - it has been 5 years now, and the doctor does not seem to think its that "risky" - she basically said "it would be a roll of the dice" - so I am mainly looking for someone who has dealt with the same scenario.
