What is cervical cerclage?

Overview:Cervical cerclage refers to various procedures that reinforce the cervix during pregnancy in women with a history of a short cervix. A cervical cerclage is done between the 12th and 14th week of pregnancy.

Cervical cerclage can either be done through the vagina (transvaginal cervical cerclage) or through the abdomen (transabdominal cervical cerclage).

Cervical cerclage may be recommended during pregnancy if you have:

  • A history of second trimester pregnancy loss
  • Previous cerclage due to painless cervical dilation during the second trimester
  • Painless cervical dilation in the second trimester
  • A short cervical length

Cervical cerclage isn't suitable for everyone at risk of premature birth. Cervical cerclage is not recommended if you have:

  • Active vaginal bleeding
  • Active preterm labor
  • An intrauterine infection
  • Preterm premature rupture of membranes
  • Twin or higher order pregnancy
  • A fetal anomaly incompatible with life
  • Prolapsed fetal membranes
