Remedies For Cervical Dilation
What exactly is cervical dilation? Can more light be shed on this for clearer understanding? Thanks
Cervical opening.: The cervix is the lower-most part of the maternal womb; the fetus has to pass through the cervix to achieve vaginal delivery. When labor starts, the contractions result in opening and softening of the cervix - slowly at first and rapidly later. The attached visual guide should give the uninitiated a sense of how much the cervix has to open for the fetal head to deliver. ...Read more
Cervix fully dilated is the normal condition during labor in which a woman's cervix has become fully dilated. The cervix begins as a closed (not dilated) cervix. Then, as the contractions squeeze the baby against the cervix, the cervix begins to dilate (dilated a bit). Later, after more contractions, the cervix becomes moderately dilated (the opening of the cervix is moderate big). Finally, the cervix is fully dilated, and the baby can start going through the ...Read more

Is it normal to feel cervical dilation during mensuration? I feel as if I'm dilated followed my cramping in the vaginal and buttock area.
Hard to tell: B/c of how the nerves to the pelvic organs work, it's hard to tell if the cervix is really dilating (it shouldn't dilate much at all, just enough to let blood or clots out), but the pain can definitely "refer" to the vagina and buttocks/rectum. Ibuprofen usually helps, and if this is a regular problem with all your periods, birth control pills may help decrease this pain a lot. ...Read more

Small instrument: An iud folds up for insertion, so the cervix does not have to be dilated very wide (only about 3-4mm). In some women who have given birth before, it is sometimes not even necessary to dilate the cervix to get the iud properly placed. If dilation is needed, a small, sterile instrument with a rounded tip is used; sometimes injecting a local anesthetic is sufficient to relax the cervix open enough. ...Read more

I am 22 weeks pregnant with my cervix dilated. Dr wants surgery I am scared for baby. How safe is it?
When your cervix is fully dilated, your doctor gives you the OK to push. Propelled by your effort and the force of your contractions, the baby makes his way through the birth canal. The fontanels -- soft spots -- on his head allow it to mold to the shape of this narrow passage. Your baby's head "crowns" when the widest part of it is ...Read more
