If you have a history of cervical insufficiency, or if your cervix appears short on an ultrasound, you may be offered a cerclage. A cerclage is a surgical procedure that involves stitching the cervix closed with a strong thread for the full-term of the pregnancy.

I have a cerclage in and it comes out wensday! Its Monday night now...when will I be likely to have her?
Complicated: In general cerclage is indicated when a woman has a clear history of incompetent cervix and previable second trimester delivery.

Difficult: Your cerclage will be checked by your OB either by inspection or ultrasound. I prefer ultrasound to check for length of cervix and any beaking membranes (amniotic sac pushing into the cervix). You should call your doc if you have pressure or increased discharge (especially watery, mucousy, or blood-tinged) for an evaluation. Try to keep pressure off your cervix and good luck. Avoid any straining. ...Read more

Many: Many of my patients have had successful cerclages and delivered at term. The argument is whether bedrest alone is just as good as a cerclage and rest.... I tell my patients that each pregnancy is different and has different risks. What works for one, may not work for another. Usually cerclages after 18 weeks are higher risk and not as successful as ones done earlier in pregnancy. ...Read more
