How Long Does Cervix Effaced Associated With Pregnancy Last
My cervix feels different in this pregnancy than my last one is that normal, it feels at a different angle and higher up?
Not unusual: With subsequent pregnancies, it is not unusual to "feel" things differently. This might even be related to fetal position - if the fetus is breech, women often report different sensations in the vaginal area. In the absence of bleeding, pressure or increased discharge, though, i would consider this a normal report. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Cervical "thinning" is also called cervical effacement. In most women, the cervix is around 4-5cm long (0%). As the cervix ripens in preparation for labor it gets shorter. This is effacement. It is expressed as a percentage. Effacement continues during labor until it is 100% effaced (paper thin). This is one measurement labor staff use to track and communicate ...Read more
Period was missed last month and have most early pregnancy symptoms including a soft and high cervix, but tested neg could I be pregnant?
Having pregnancy symptoms but 2 neg tests. Period started early and short last time, cervix has a white milky substance. Should i wait til period?
Is it a mistake to be induced at 38 weeks sharp? Husband can't be present if we wait. 2nd pregnancy. Cervix dialated but not effaced. Dr. Says "ok".
Not recommended: In the recent past, we were seeing increased admissions to the nicu because of 'social' inductions. The american college of obstetricians and gynecologists do not recommend inductions at less than 39 weeks unless there is a medical issue like high blood pressure, diabetes, etc. Although you might have a high chance of successful induction, there is a slight increased chance of baby complications. ...Read more
Hi. my cervix seems to be longer than usual i think this is the 1st time .. i tried pregnancy tests 2 times but it says im not pregnant .. ?
When a woman is: pregnant, we use the cervical length & other characteristics to help assess her risk for premature delivery or, at term, to determine if her cervix is preparing for imminent delivery. The length of the cervix has no special significance otherwise. A change in its length isn't an early sign of pregnancy. Best wishes. Dr. Anne ...Read more

I have an incompetent cervix I lost my last child to this and my dr said something about stiches? And high risk pregnancy. What is all this about?
Incompetent cervix: An incompetent cervix is one that opens and allows the pregnancy to egress prematurely resulting in loss. The cervix dilates too easily and the "stitches" are called a cervical cerclage which holds the cervix closed like a "drawstring on a purse or bag". When fetal maturity is assured the cerclage is removed and Voila! a full term baby. You are at high risk for repeated pregnancy loss without one ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Last pregnancy diagnoses with incompetent cervix. Does this affect ability to get pregnant? Does this make miscarriage more likely?
Just had sex my cervix is high and open and his sperm didn't come back out. Can i get pregnant? How long should I wait to take a pregnancy tst?
Diagnosed with incompetent cervix during my last pregnancy. I am now 7 weeks pregnant and have a small amount of boogery discharge. Is this normal?
Unrelated: An incompetent cervix rarely causes any problems before the second trimester. About 1/2 of all pregnancies have some bleeding in the first trimester. Half of these go on and have normal babies. The other half end up with miscarriages, usually because of something wrong with the baby. This is why cerclages aren't placed to treat incompetent cervix until after the ierst trimester. Hope this helps. ...Read more
