My wife is 30 years old and pregnant. This is our first child. We got married four years ago. She got pregnant soon after. But, since we were not ready, we opted for a termination of the pregnancy using a medicine. Now, my wife had undergone a pelvic ultrasound. She has been given three observations: bicornuate uterus, internal os opening is 3.7 mm, and the cervical length is 3.5 cm. In addition, a single live intrauterine fetus with FHR 165 bpm and growth 15 weeks was noted.The doctor said that the internal os should be closed until the end of pregnancy. So, he advised her a complete bed rest and prescribed Proluton Depot 500 mg and Hucog injections. Apart from this, she has been asked to take some medicines. Can you please help with following queries? What is the risk and impact of a bicornuate uterus? The internal os is open by 3.7mm. What is the impact of the same? Is the child at a high risk? I am quite worried about the reports. If the internal os has opened, will it keep increasing or can it close again without manual intervention such as cerclage? Are there any additional precautions or measures that need to be taken. Any information will help.
