Mrs. Alison M. Baker M.D.'s Expert Contributions
A cervical cerclage is a suture, or stitch, placed in the cervix to prevent painless cervical dilation. Candidates for this procedure usually have a diagnosis of cervical insufficiency that has led to second trimester loss in the past. This is not a good option for someone with a history of true preterm birth/delivery, better options for this type of history include use of 17 OHP injections to prevent early delivery or monitoring cervical length with transvaginal ultrasound every 2 weeks, usually starting around 16 weeks gestation through the mid to late second trimester.
