I had a cerclage put in in December of last year. My cerclage was a rescue cerclage and had a high failure risk, but in my circumstances I made the choice because I had to do something.

They are discussing giving me one now, and here is what I know. Most of the time a cerclage is put in because a history of cervical incompetence or a high risk of preterm delivery. Any type of cervical trauma adds to this, weather it be a tear from a prior delivery or a surgery. It is normal practice for a doctor to recommend you stay away from sex while a cerclage is in, because Seminal fluid can cause premature dilation and the cerclage is meant to prevent it.

My personal experience with a cerclage was failure. My cervix ripped and it failed at 22 weeks. We just have too much experience with premature labor.

I had one placed at 20 weeks with my youngest ds. I was dilated to a 4 and the bag with his foot was starting to protrude. Mine was done on emergency status. I had to stay on bed rest and no sex at all. I delivered at 37 weeks 4 days. My baby was 7lbs 3.5oz. It saved my sons life.

I have 2 friends who have had this done. One had cervical cancer and lost half her cervix, the other dilated to 4 at like 4 months and had preterm labor several times. Friend 2 was on bed rest and modified bed rest the remainder of her pregnancy. Best of luck

I had one at 13wks, I was preggo with my triplets. It was planned and recommended. We didn't want to get into the rescue situation. I went in bed rest with them at 25wks and delivered at 33wks.(this is considered full term for trips). And yes the doc said no sex.
