Large Cervix Opening


Hi,

I posted this in the First Trimester board but didn't have much luck so thought I would see if anyone further along had any answers!

I had an HSG just before I got my and the radiologist said that I had a large cervix opening which would pose a risk during a pregnancy. He said that a stitch was sometimes used to keep the cervix closed.

Does anyone know when this is done? As far as I can see, it should only become a problem later on in my pregnancy and can cause early labour - is this correct?

I have left a message with the FS but not sure if it is something I should rather speak to my doctor/midwife about? My first midwife appt is on 17th Feb when I will be 10 weeks.

Possibly incompetent cervix? i have one as well but mine was never open... there is a thread in the gestational problems section many got the cerclage, better to do it early since i was too far along when they noticed i couldnt. so definitely bring it up

I'm don't really know anything much about it but my cousin had a few miscarriages quite late and her 2 children had been born premature. They gave her a 'stitch' in her cervix in her last pregnancy to prevent her from going into early labour and to try and prevent another miscarriage, it worked I guess because she carried full term with no problems. I'm not sure when she had it done.

Good luck hun xx

I believe around 15 weeks the fetus starts to become heavy enough to cause a problem if you have an incompetent cervix.

Thank you for all your advice - I didn't even know it was called a cerclage or an incompetent cervix so I've now managed to find loads of information about it.

Thanks again
