Also some women go the whole pregnancy with a cervical length of 2cm. ...Read more

Hello doctor. Actually my cervix length was 3.9 at 12 weeks and now at 17 weeks It's 3cms. Are there chances to increase the length?

Hello doctor. Actually my cervix length was 3.9 at 12 weeks and now at 17 weeks It's 3cms. Are there chances to increase the length?

Cervical length: Cervical length decreases with ongoing pregnancy, and to some extent depends on whether you have had previous term pregnancy. There is no way to increase the length, as shortening is very normal, if it occurs without dilation of the cervix. Your ob provider should be able to reassure you by examination when/if the cervical shortening might become problematic. ...Read more
