Question: Hai Dr. I have twin pregnancy Dr. Suggested cervical cerclage. Please tell me What is cervical cerclage and What are they sideffect
Answer: Hello! I am not a doctor but I can tell you what this is. If your doc has suggested you to do cervical cerclage, it means the mouth of your cervix is open. And if your cervix mouth is open you are under the category of high risk pregnancy. Which means, if not treated properly you have chances to miscarry or have premature delivery. Relax!! Dont need to panic. This is not rare. When the mouth of the cervix is open you have two options - 1. Complete bed rest. 2. Cervical Cerclage. A high risk pregnancy doc will handle this. They take a thread, put you on anesthesia, and stitch the mouth of your cervix. You may have to remain in hospital for a few hours or more. This is the best solution for high risk pregnancies, especially when you are carrying twins. The risks with this are rare. The doc will open this stitches during your labor. Discuss this with your doc without any hesitation. Be an informed mom. Ask as many questions as you can. You pay those docs their fee. Dont worry at all. It is gonna be all right. I have friends who were once high risk babies. Best wishes.
