In brief: It depends

When a woman has had a pregnancy loss in the 16-24 weeks time period it is possible the loss is from incompetent cervix.
However there are other causes. So to know if she has incompetent cervix and would benefit from a cerclage her doctor needs to review what happened and her medical history to know how sure it is she has incompetent cervix. She needs to work with a high risk pregnancy doc.
