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.

Not impossible: it sounds like you have a diagnosis of cervical insufficiency and you have a stitch place to prevent dilation. The stitch should be able to holdyour cervix closed, however there are some situations where your cervix will continue to try to open anyway, such as infection. If you begin having contractions, get seen by a doctor immediately. Otherwise take it easy. Good luck ...Read more

Cannot tell!: The first day of your period is day#1. Most women are most fertile around day#14. Most pregnancy tests do not turn positive until about day#28 (assuming regular cycles). At three weeks after your period, even if you had conceived, it would be near impossible to tell if you were pregnant. The cervix, on exam, is a poor indicator of early pregnancy. I hope this helps! ...Read more
I fingered up my vagina and felt uterine tissue coming out through the dilated cervix after a medical abortion @8th gestational week. Is this normal?
Tissue passage: A medical abortion uses a combination of two pills to start the cramping and passage of the fetal tissue that you have already noted. More importantly, you have increased your risk of intra uterine infection by placing your finer through the dilated cervix with its attendant bacterial content. Hopefully, you are also taking antibiotics and will return to the abortion MD for a post abortion exam. ...Read more

Highly suggestive: Your presentation is suggestive of a loss of cervical integrity. The regression back to 2cm occurred because the bag of water broke. PPROM at 21weeks in the face of cervical dilatation, unfortunately, carries a poor prognosis. However, subsequent pregnancies can be have very favorable outcomes when treated with progesterone and/or cerclage and serial cervical ultrasounds. ...Read more
