Incompetent Cervix
martinawilliams posted:
Hello, I was on these boards back in 2009. At about 20 weeks I had to do a cervical suture due to an incompetent cervix. Im now pregnant with my 2nd child and I'm wondering if I have to undergo another suture this time around. I would just love to know what are the odds of this happening again.

Also, I had an emergency c section with my 1st child. How risky is it to try a VBAC? I would love to have a vaginal delievery but I was told the 1st time that my pelvic was too small.

Thanks for any help or advice.

Hello and welcome back! I'm not really familiar with all that, so perhaps another member could give you some more information.

I would definitely be speaking with my OB about all that though, as he/she would be more privvy to your health information that us.

Either way, best wishes!!

You will certainly have a number of decisions to make here.

First, the issue of the cervical insufficiency. if you truly had this issue, most individuals would recommend you undergo an elective cerclage between 12-14 weeks.

You did not include what your cervix was, what was the reasoning behind doing the cerclage. This is all important information to know. I believe your physician and you are the best to decide this however.

I am very familar with this issue, one I deal with quite a bit.

The other issue of whether to have a trial of labor after C/S (TOLAC), is another issue. The risk of uterine rupture is the biggest fear individuals have. The risk is approximately 0.4-0.7%. This is considered fairly low.

However, if you have been told you have a small pelvis, then there is literature which would suggest a repeat C/S would in fact be the safest option for you.

Again, these will need to be discussed with your physician. good luck with your decisions.
