I lost two boys in october due and we just found out we are expecting again in sept. The boys were born at 24 weeks and the drs aren't sure if it was an incompetent cervex or just pre term labor. We need to decide to do a cerclage or not. Anyone had one? The dr wants to do it at 16 weeks..is this late?

My cousin's and his wife lost a baby at around that time. Next time she had the cerclage. Their baby is a lively 3 year old now! I think it would be worth it. What are the drawbacks or risks?

Hey Olivene...thanks for your response! It is nice to hear that it does work. They told us there is a 90% success rate, but they is a potenial of braking the water or infection that they cannot treat...I am very nervous!

I have a history of miscarriages, with my last miscarriage at 18 weeks. So for this pregnancy I had a cerclage inserted at 13 weeks, and removed at 37 weeks. I was put under spinal anaesthetic for both procedures. I'm 37.4 weeks now & just waiting to go into labour now.

Hi. I just had a baby 3 months ago w/a cerclage. I lost my 1st baby at 22 wks. This time though my cervix once again thinned out to the st_tch. If it wouldn't of been there then I would of lost this little boy too. The cerclage is a wonderful thing and it doesn't really hurt bad. My doctor took mine out right in the office w/o any numbing. (Cerivx opened to 3 cm w/in 2 hours!) And I had my baby that day. 16 weeks is plenty of time to get the cerclage. Good Luck to you and know that you are doing the best thing for you and your baby.
