Cervical insufficiency and short cervix can cause problems during pregnancy, including premature birth and miscarriage. Treatment can help you have a healthy pregnancy and stay pregnant longer. A provider may recommend a Cervical Cerclage, which is a stitch put into the cervix to keep it closed and can be done as early as 13-14 weeks of pregnancy. A provider may also administer Vaginal Progesterone or other medication for a shortened cervix in order to prevent preterm labor. Progesterone is a hormone that helps your body prepare for pregnancy.
With proper treatment, a woman with a short or incompetent cervix greatly increases her chances of having a healthy pregnancy. If you’ve had a miscarriage or gave birth prematurely, and your doctor failed to identify or to take action on your short cervix, you might have a medical malpractice case.
