You can't: The only way to determine cervical dilatation is an examination by your obstetrician. If you are having any signs or symptoms of labor, discuss this with your doctor. They might feel it appropriate to check your cervix for changes.

Yes: Absolutely, and the sooner the better. Depending on your drug of choice will dictate which treatment options are best for you during your pregnancy. Be honest and up front with your obstetrician about you addiction, and ask for help.

No: While more and more procedures can be done using "minimally invasive techniques, " the goal of any surgery is to treat the problem, not to ensure the best cosmetic result. However, all things being equal, laparoscopic approaches do offer faster recoveries and less scaring.
