Can The Doctor Induce Me For An Irritable Uterus At 37 Weeks
No: An irritable uterus is one that can be contracting, but is not the same as preterm labor. Preterm labor means the cervix is opening and that is threatening for you and the baby. Preterm contractions are when the uterus contracts but the cervix doesn't open. It can be VERY hard to distinguish the 2 from patient perspective (I had them same in my pregnancy). See doctor or L&D! if worried though! ...Read more

With some history, exam and lab tests, there should be some 'road map' to follow. Pregnancy causes your immune system to weaken, and you don't want things to get out of hand. I hope you can get seen TODAY. Take care. ...Read more
