For a twin pregnancy, what is considered a short cervical length? Is 2.5 CM at 24 weeks considered short (and so put me at increased risk for ptl)?

Depends: All twin pregnancy are at risk for ptl. Your cervix at 2.5 cm requires follow up with your high risk doctor to make sure is not shortening any more. Don't stress too much, make sure u let the doctor know if you get cramping, bleeding or leakage of fluid. Make sure you keep ur appts as well.

Is 3cm the normal length for your cervix at 21 weeks?

Is 3cm the normal length for your cervix at 21 weeks?

Not normal: A 3 cm cervix at 21 weeks is not what most women's cervix measures, but it has been deemed sufficiently long to herald a risk for preterm delivery, which it does, when the cervix is shorter than 3 cm at that gestational age.

Help! Is 3.2cm a normal cervix length at 23 weeks?

Help! Is 3.2cm a normal cervix length at 23 weeks?

Yes: 3.2cm is more or less normal. One study found that at 24 weeks gestation, the average cervical length is 3.5 cm. We start to worry if it is shorter than 2.5cm as there is a 1/5 chance of pre-term delivery. Best wishes!

Why is cervical length important in pregnancy?

Why is cervical length important in pregnancy?

Premature delivery: In women who have a history of premature delivery, the length of the cervix can be monitored as a sign of a possible premature delivery again. Sometimes an extremely shortened cervix may be a sign of premature delivery in a woman who has no history of premature delivery.

What should be cervical length during 9 weeks of pregnancy?

3.5-5.5 cm: At nine weeks of pregnancy is so small it would not influence the length of the cervix. Therefore the cervical length would be just as it was before you were pregnant. The average length is 3.5 to 5.5 cm.

I have a cervix length of 26mm and I am planning for kids, can I make it full term?

Wait and see: The cervix is a dynamic and you can't predict what will happen during a pregnacyby one exam, when you are not pregnant. Furthermore a shortened cervix doesn't necessarily always mean a premature delivery.

I have a cervix length of 2.9cm at 16weeks after aloop treatment 3 years ago is this bad?

What did your OB say: Anything under 3.0 cm needs to be watched closely as you may end up needing a stitch (cerclage) but that is usually done if cervix gets down to 2.5cm or less but your OB should have already discussed this at length with you and if your OB has not then you need to call or go in for a visit and if you were my pt I would let the perinatologist who I use to follow your cervix and decide if u need one.

What is the normal cervical length at 12 weeks. Mine was 3.1cm. Is it normal? I had a previous loss at 20 weeks for no known reason.

20 week loss: The most important issue here is that your doctor make a judgment call regarding your last pregnancy in order to manage this one. Using the information they have they need to determine the most likely cause of the the 20 week loss. If it was preterm labor then 17 Hydroxy Progesterone injections should be used. If they feel cervical incompetence was likely then they should perform a cerclage.

Why do ob docs measure cervical length?

Helps to check: Checking the cervical length give an approximation of how likely you are to still carry the pregnancy and not get close to delivery. If the cervix length is 3cm or more, there is less likely a premature delivery. But this is only a guide. If you start having strong contractions this could change quickly. Also some women go the whole pregnancy with a cervical length of 2cm.

My wife s ultrasound report showed her cervix measured 2.9 cms in length. Is this normal. And what does it mean?

My wife s ultrasound report showed her cervix measured 2.9 cms in length. Is this normal. And what does it mean?

Pregnant?: Depends why they did the ultrasound. If she is pregnant, how many weeks? This can help give a risk of preterm delivery. If she's not pregnant, it doesn't really mean anything.

At 20 weeks, is cerclage good option and safe? My cervix length is 3 CM so not sure if I should go for cerclage now or at later stage?

Usually earlier: A cerclage is typically placed earlier in the pregnancy in patients who meet very specific criteria. A cervical length of 3 cm would be normal but their could be circumstances that a cerclage may be appropriate. Do not hesitate to get a second opinion from a perinatologist..

Lost my virginity last night. Guy is average length. Didn't hurt too much except deep when he'd go all in. Was he hitting my cervix? Am I normal?

Lost my virginity last night. Guy is average length. Didn't hurt too much except deep when he'd go all in. Was he hitting my cervix? Am I normal?

Maybe and Yes.: Certainly possible that his penis could reach your cervix. Nothing that you have written suggests that you are not normal. Hopefully you had him use a condom? No free ride on the pregnancy risk for the first time!
