When a woman's cervix is weak (sometimes called an incompetent cervix) she is more likely to have a baby born prematurely because the cervix shortens or opens too early. In order to prevent premature labor, a woman's doctor may recommend a cervical cerclage. A cerclage is used to prevent these early changes in a woman's cervix, thus preventing premature labor. A closed cervix helps a developing baby stay inside the uterus until the mother reaches 37-38 weeks of pregnancy. What is cervical cerclage? Treatment for cervical incompetence is a surgical procedure called cervical cerclage, in which the cervix is sewn closed during pregnancy. The cervix is the lowest part of the uterus and extends into the vagina.

Thanks for the feedback!
What does it mean if i have already had a baby and my cervix is now high up and soft and open after two weeks after my period?
You are ovulating. If you want to get pregnant, have sex now. If you don't want to get pregnant, don't have sex now until your cervix is low and closed or use protection….
You can never know how deep inside the Vagina the cervix is. it varies between females some can have it at 5 Inches some can have it at 7- 10 Inches with in the vaginal …cavity. Next time you visit the Gynecologist ask him to measure.
Not sure if it is common or not but I was diagnosed with a shortened cervix at 16 weeks. My cervix had fallen to 2.8. I was placed on bedrest for one week. At 17 weeks, it mea…sured 2.3. At 18 weeks, my cervix grew to 3.4. So I do know that it is possible. Good luck.
It's probably somewhat painful, of course. Any surgery is. However, if a dr does it, it's necessary. If it's not done, you'd likely lose your baby which is the most "har…mful" of all.
it can depend on the baby, my sis has a 2 month old baby girl, she seems so clever, shes been trying to hold her head up since she was about 3wks old! She may be able to do th…is but she cant support her head for too long, let him/her hold her head up themself if they can, just be ready to take the pressure of the baby when they cant hold their head up.
starting 8 months.
Varies from baby to baby.
No, but it can give cervical stimulation.
It could just be that it isn't old enough, and the muscles in its neck haven't strengthened yet. But if the baby is at least six months old, you might want to check it with a …doctor
If you are not pregnant, and not on your period, then it probably means you are ovulating. The cervix opens up when you are ovulating, and it becomes 'slimier' to help aid the… travel of the sperm. If you are pregnant, then it just means your are pregnant. If you are not pregnant, and not ovulating, then it means you are about to have your period.
Because it needs to dialate (expand) during labor.
I'm assuming that you mean holes from ear piercings. Cosmetic repair is really only for larger stretches (1 inch or so). If they really bother you, get the scar tissue punched… out. Dermal punches actually remove a chunk of tissue whereas piercing just moves the tissue to the side. If your piercings aren't closing up naturally anymore, its because of scar tissue. The punch will remove the scar tissue so you'd just let the holes close up. You'd only get it a gauge larger than whatever size they are now.
The cervix is the opening to the uterus (womb), so the baby passesthrough the cervix during [vaginal] childbirth.
