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?

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

Crl32.3at9w5d.Spotting from 13may.Internalexam showed spotting is from the cervix.Can this lead to any pregnant complications like cervix dilation early?

Possibly: I assume that you are still quite early in your pregnancy, that the sonogram has shown a fetal heartbeat, and that the spotting is still present. Serial ultrasounds documenting fetal growth and a heart beat is important - as is avoidance of strenuous activity and intercourse. The main risk here is, hopefully not, a miscarriage. Dilation of the cervix is a risk that is seen later in pregnancy. ...Read more
