Answer: Hello dear, normal cervical length is 4 to 5 cm when not pregnant. One study found that at 24 weeks gestation, the average cervical length is 3.5 cm. When cervical length is less than 2.2 cm, women face a 20 percent probability of preterm delivery. If Your length is low, try to take more rest, don't heavy lifting and heavy work, avoid sex, avoid jerky ride, any kind of bleeding found, consult your doctor.
Answer: Short cervix can cause preterm labour,ask your doctor about cerclage,it is knot tied to your cervix so that it doesn't open before time,i also got cerclage 3 weeks ago bcoz of short cervix. Other than this rest as much as possible sometimes with your feet a little elevated than your head to put load off your cervix,do not pull anything heavy, no sex.
