If incompetent cervix is detected, then a cerclage can be considered. ...Read more

My cervix was 4cm at 20 weeks and water bag broke at 21 weeks cervix was 2cm. Is it incompetent cervix? can we go full term with incompetent cervix?
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

3 cervical cerclages, 1 preterm labor, 3 c-sections, 2 miscarriages... Would i be considered high risk? Pregnant with #6, only 3 surviving children
Sometimes: Many things can make doing a pap smear difficult. If the uterus is severely tilted, displaced, or removed (partial or supra cervical hysterectomy); visualizing the cervix may be difficult.

what is true?
Controversial topic: Premature cervical changes(dilatation,shortening, funneling,softening...) are difficult to measure and to interpret.Sonographic or clinical exams of your cervix are very variable, very subjective, not accurate nor reliable predictors of premature labor or preterm delivery. Consult a knowledgeable MFM doctor regarding accepted criteria for "cervical insufficiency". Your risks at 22wks.seem small. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
