Remedies For Cervix Not Dilated
39 weeks pregnant @ 23 yrs. Dr appt today. Light pinkish/reddish spotting. Cervix not dilated but getting soft. Dr says not to be concerned but still am?
No need to worry: There is no need to worry about light spotting or bleeding in late pregnancy. It is not uncommon especially after having a vaginal exam. You also don't need to worry that your cervix has not started to dilate. Many women are not dilated at 39 weeks. Most practices do not want you to go beyond 41 weeks without considering induction of labor. You still have time. Hope your delivery goes well. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What type of catheter is put in the cervix after it has been dilated since it was closed? How long is the catheter left in for/possible complications?
Labor: Yes, you need to go to the hospital if you have a gush or leakage of fluid. Also go to the hospital with any bleeding, strong contractions that are 5-6 mon apart and last for an hour or if you don't feel baby move. ...Read more

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
I was told I have a closed cervix and have to be dilated every 3mo to try and conceive, this was very painful, do I have other options for conception?
Absolutely: Cervical stenosis usually improves with cervical dilation. I'm sorry it's painful, a paracervical block usually makes this more comfortable. It's also unusual to have to do this more than once. Consider intrauterine insemination with or without ovulation induction. If it's that painful, maximize your odds and see an rei or an ob/gyn more experienced in these procedures. Good luck to you. ...Read more
If i was dilated 3 CM and my cervix was 75 % effaced, and have previously had silent labor, when do I know when to go in?
Labor: Most women will still notice some period heaviness or mild cramps when labor starts. If you do feel something that's 5 min apart and lasts 1 hour, go in to hospital. If you don't feel baby move, go in. If water breaks or bleeding occurs, go in. If pressure in pelvis increases, go in. If any questions, call your doctor. ...Read more
Varies so much!: The cervix gets thinner, softer, and can begin to dilate at the end of pregnancy. So it would seem that things are moving the right way. That, of course, doesn't tell you anything about when you'll actually go into labor! Watch for a gush or a trickle of fluid that can happen when your water breaks, or increasingly frequent cramps or back pains that go along with a "tight" feeling of the uterus. ...Read more
