An incompetent cervix is caused when the tissue that make up the cervix is weakened. This causes the cervix to dilate early in a pregnancy, before the baby is full term. Many times, this will result in a miscarriage late in the pregnancy, after the second trimester begins.
If it is possible to diagnose the condition, there are some things that can be done to treat the condition. For example, careful monitoring is required when a woman has an incompetent cervix. This could mean that the woman’s doctor requires regular ultrasounds and preventive medication to help with the condition. Along with this a surgical procedure may also be completed to help make it easier for the pregnancy to continue.
After a woman has a normal pregnancy, this condition will usually surface if damage has occurred to the cervix. This could be from previous pregnancies or medical procedures that may have been completed in between the pregnancies. Unfortunately, it can be difficult to diagnose an incompetent cervix because it rare and often has no symptoms.
