Question: What is the meaning of internal OS .In my 37 week scan report it is mentioned as closed
Answer: Internal os is a part of cervix. The cervix, which is the bottom portion of the uterus, opens when a woman has a baby, through a process called cervical dilation. The process of the cervix opening is one way that doctors track how a woman's labor is progressing. During labor, the cervix opens to accommodate the passage of baby’s head into the vagina, which is around 10 centimeters (cm) dilated for most term babies. If the cervix isn’t open, means, a woman isn’t in labor. But if her cervix is opening at a steady, regular rate, she’s in active labor and getting closer to delivering her baby.
