Q:

Hello everyone.. I have underwent first trimester screening ultrasound recently. Everything was normal except that my cervix length is little smaller. It should me min 25 and my report says 23.3
My Dr. Has given me a medicine which i have to insert inside me everyday to make my cervix stronger. Can anyone please elaborate this if you have any knowledge about it?

Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa please advise

Apoorva Bhandari

She might have given u progesterone/ susten to avoid cervix from shortening.pl visit your doc. Regularly. Sometimes, stiches need to be put to avoid cervix from opening too soon.

Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa

Cervicle shortening leads to pre mature labor or PMRM etc etc.. hence, be on complete bedrest.. refrain from all types of physical activities.. foot end elevation is must..

Thanks Apoorva Bhandari; and Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa; for your honest ans.
Yes...my dr. Has given me progesterone which i need to have daily. She hasn't asked me for bedrest...instead she recomended to take walks.
Now my ques is...will taking progesterone regularly help?

Apoorva Bhandari

It does help neha. They give it routinely these days. I have been given progesterone even though no cervical shortening
