I’m after people’s experience of a cervix length scan and also cerclage.
I had my second cervix length scan today at 20 weeks and it really hurt. They prodded me three times and each time I yelped in pain. They said they had to get close To my cervix for a clear and accurate measurement. The third prod was very very painful. After the scan I wiped myself and I had blood straight away. The blood has lightened up a few hopes later but I was petrified at the time. The doctor said spotting is normal after these scans and that I could be spotting still tomorrow.....but my first cervix scan at 16 weeks it didn’t hurt at all and I no bleeding....
Has anyone else had bleeding after cervix length scan? And did it hurt? I cannot find anything on the internet about bleeding and pain.... apparently this scan is meant to be pain free??
Aside from that my cervix length is 25mm so I’m borderline, I have another scan next week to check for any changes and decided if I need a stitch..... I’ve been reading up on cerclage and its petrified me! I don’t want to have a general anaesthetic or spinal with a baby in my tummy, and the risks of the surgery don’t sound appealing. However it could save my baby being born too early. My first son was born 6 weeks early and since then I had a lletz procedure on my cervix which took away over a cm of my cervix so this baby is bound to be even earlier... so I can see why I need the stitch.
Please can people share their cerclage experiences?
many thanks xxxx
