In brief: Close surveillance
There are many ways of managing a patient with a history of incompetent cervix.
Some women may receive a cerclage or a stitch around their cervix. You may be placed on bedrest or modified activity. Some women receive vaginal Progesterone suppositories or injections. Some women have frequent sonograms to measure their cervical length.
