Hi doctor,

I am 110 days pregnant. When we took scan in the 13th week, the report showed that the uterus is open. They said it as cervical incompetence and immediately advised operation for cervical suturing treatment. I need a second opinion regarding this. Thank you.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • If the ultrasound shows your cervix is open, then you need to follow the doctor's advice and get the stitching done. Otherwise, there is a very high chance of losing the pregnancy.
  • It is a minor short procedure done under anesthesia and you will need to be admitted for one or two days. But, after that you will be fine.
  • As the pregnancy progresses, the cervix will open more and shorten in length. Then, it will be difficult or not easily possible to stitch. So, get it done as soon as possible.
