Open for a time.: A miscarriage is a process where the pregnancy is unable to be maintained for a number of reasons. The uterus contracts and you feel cramping pain. If the pregnancy is farther along this can cause slight opening (dilatation) of the cervix. Most of the time if this occurs it returns to normal in the first 3-4 wks. After the miscarriage. ...Read more

Had heavy bleeding which has stopped. If I miscarried would my cervix would still be closed? I am 6 weeks and 2 days along.

It could look closed: At six weeks along the products of conception aren't very big. If you had heavy bleeding then there is a good likelihood that you miscarried. To be sure whether you miscarried or not you could get a pelvic ultrasound which may show a gestational sac. You might also get a quantitative hCG to give some idea of whether you have a viable pregnancy. ...Read more

Had miscarriage two days ago what should be position of my cervix should it. Be closed or opened I was spotting but now I have no more bleeding?

Need an exam: You really need a pelvic exam to assess whether the cervix is now open or closed. There are different kinds of stages of abortion and the position/opening of the cervix can determine what stage you are in. The only way really know this is to have your doctor look at see if the cervix is open or closed. If you are no longer bleeding it's likely you've had a complete abortion, but exam will prove it. ...Read more

No...: Infertility is defined by someone who is unable to conceive. You have been pregnant so infertility does not sound like it is a problem that you have. Miscarriages are emotionally difficult; however, know that they are very common and most women that have a miscarriage are ultimately able to have a successful pregnancy. ...Read more

You could be: Bleeding and cramping is always worrisome - but not diagnostic of miscarriage.

I had a miscarriage on Oct. 12, 2015. I started my period this month until 11/18/15. I've had a high soft and tilted cervix for a few weeks. Normal?

Hormones & Cervix: This can be normal as many women who have had a miscarriage undergo a number of hormonal changes as well as inflammation - all which can cause position changes of the uterus and softening of the cervix. In most women, these changes should normalize within the next several months though can change if getting pregnant again. Keep in mind - with other symptoms, it can also indicate infection ...Read more

I've been trying to conceive for over 8 months after a miscarriage. I'm 14dpo right now and my cervix changes throughout the day?

Check a test: If you are 14 days post ovulation, your period should be starting in the next 24 hours. If it doesn't, check a pregnancy test and, if it is negative, repeat it in 3-5 days to be sure. I am uncertain what you mean when you say your cervix changes through out the day, but, if you are trying to conceive you may have succeeded! Hope this helps. ...Read more

Miscarried 22aug, 19w for incompetent cervix. Reports r normal. Having sex after 2w till now. Can I be pregnant now (26sep)? If so, is there any risk? I'm 21

Possible: If you are having unprotected sex you certainly can be pregnant. If you take a pregnancy test in a week or 2 you should have the answer. You certainly would be at risk for another miscarriage if you have an incompetent cervix. You should consult with a high risk OB and be considered for placement of a cerclage (a suture around the cervix) for your next pregnancy. ...Read more

Twins pregancy at 22 weeks with cervix lenght of 2.2 cm and U Shape. What are the odd of miscarriage before 34 weeks and advises?

Odds are hard to get: Twin pregnancies always carry a risk of preterm labor and premature delivery which has been very difficult to estimate despite research on cervical length, uterine contraction monitoring, measurements of cervical f-fibronectin etc... Studies on prophylactic measures like bed rest, cervical cerclage, progesterone supplementation are also controversial. Consult a MFM doctor, specialist in twins. ...Read more
