Experiences with a short cervix

short cervixI would love to hear about people’s experiences with a short cervix. I’ve just been told mine is around 2.4cm at 19 weeks and had to go on progesterone to try and stop it shortening more.

  • I had a short cervix picked up from 27 weeks with #1, I was put on bed rest for 10weeks with regular scans and steroid shots. With the next 3 pregnancies I had a cervical stitch put in at 15 weeks. Bed rest was still required, but not for as long. Linda
  • I was 2.4cm at 16weeks in my 2nd pregnancy. Was put on progesterone, nifedapine and bed rest (easier said than done with a 9month old at home). I ended up being induced at 38weeks. Melissa
  • I had a short cervix which was discovered at my 12 week scan. They put me on progesterone but it didn’t work for me and I had to have a stitch put in at 15 weeks and was told to stay on bed rest. It only held until I was 26 weeks and I delivered my baby girl. Shes been on hospital for 12 weeks but will be coming home soon. Rachell
