Are cervical changes reversible?

I had premature contractions while I was on vacation. The doctor in Mexico said that I was effaced 35% and dilated 2 cm. Then, I was given medication to stop the labor. Now, after the meds, my cervix is full and closed. Is this possible? Or are they just dragging this out to get more money out of us???

  • Yes your cervix can un dialate.My doctor told me. It happened to me. I was at 5 preterm, after bed rest I was at 3. Also one docs or nurses definition of how dialated you are can differ due to hand size and how they interpret. It's not like they can put a ruler in there!lol
