One of the main issues with diagnosing an incompetent cervix is that it is rare and sometimes does not produce any symptoms. However, there are some things that women have noted when they have an incompetent cervix.

For starters, many women with an incompetent cervix notice light vaginal bleeding. This could occur at any point in the pregnancy, even in the first trimester. Another issue that is common is pelvic pressure. This could be from the result of the body attempting to give birth to the baby.

Backaches and abdominal cramps are also common when women have an incompetent cervix. It is also possible for women to notice a change in their vaginal discharge when they have this condition. If you have any of these symptoms, it is best to talk to your doctor as soon as you can.
