If I have an incompetent cervix i dilated at 14 weeks do I still have to have a d&e or can I have d&c?
Technicality only: D&C and D&E are not that different; yes, technique and risks are slightly different, but it's kinda moot point.

The cervix can only be dilated so much mechanically. D&E uses instruments to fragment the POC thus has no limit. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Not necessarily..: If this is your first baby/pregnancy, then it may mean so. If second or more, slightly dilated cervix is common/normal and it likely stays that way until close to delivery time. Nevertheless, regular follow-up with your OB is strongly advised to ensure that it is so. If it dilates/opens up more too early, then it is incompetent and treatment maybe needed. Congrats on your pregnancy. Good luck. ...Read more
