I have a question about cerclages

  1. Hi I have a question about cerclages. I went into preterm labor at 21 weeks, 2 years ago due to funneling. I wasnt able to get an emergency cerclage because my water had already broken and i was loosing amniotic fluid. Im currently 9 weeks pregnant and will have a preventative cerclage placed at 12 weeks. Im just concerned about funneling again. Will the cerclage prevent that from happening? If I do start funneling again, what will happen? Is there medication out there that I can take to prevent funneling? I've looked online for information but i cant really find anything; so I'd appreciate ANY information. Thanks in advance
