I suffered pprom at 16 weeks in my twin gestation and lost my boys at 25 weeks. In my next pregnancy should my cervix be stitched/sewn?

I suffered pprom at 16 weeks in my twin gestation and lost my boys at 25 weeks. In my next pregnancy should my cervix be stitched/sewn?

Not necessarily.: It depends on your other obstetrical outcomes too; your history does not mean you have an incompetent cervix that merits cervical cerclage placement. I am sorry you had such a bad outcome with your previous pregnancy, however if you have a singleton pregnancy next time your risk should be back at baseline (11-12% for the U.S.). Take Folic Acid 1-5 mg daily from now on to prevent sptd.

Is twin pregnants often miscarry and why?

Is twin pregnants often miscarry and why?

Hope my answer helps: Twins are 2 embryos implanting. The risk of miscarriage with one embryo implanting ia approximately 15% and with 2 embryos this risk is bound to double. In addition, some of the twin pregnancies are from cleavage of 1 embryo that is associated with errors such as unequal DNA material in the 2 embryos. This results in miscarriage in most instances as a protective mechanism. Good Luck!

AM 6 MONTHS PREGNANT WITH TWIN ONE IS STILLBORN AND THE OTHER ONE IS ALIVE WHAT ARE THEY GOING TO DO?

AM 6 MONTHS PREGNANT WITH TWIN ONE IS STILLBORN AND THE OTHER ONE IS ALIVE WHAT ARE THEY GOING TO DO?

Very high risk: This is a very high risk situation and should be handled one on one. Hopefully you have an Obgyn and possibly a Perinatologist involved in your care who can help guide you through the process. In general the pregnancy would be continued focusing on the safety of the live twin. The type of twins, location of babies, status of amniotic fluid and cervix are important factors.

Interesting: Our panel shows you to be male. None the less the body can handle such a pregnancy The more difficult issue will be the emotional stress and work involved with having 3 infants/toddlers at the same time. It would help if you have a strong family support system.
