    Where have you looked so far? Have you tried the archives of "The American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology"?

    camay, yes ive tried looking,but they wanted $30 for it. im pretty cramped with funds right now. ive also tried going to local college unversities to search, but no luck. majority of the journals ive encountered in my search were mostly cancer related. if anyone can please help thatll be great!.....

    If you even look at Yahoo Search for "incompetent cevix" there are over 16,000 results. Go to the ones form NIH, or ACOG. You will actually find journal articles that way. Also look for Medline or eMedicine for the article. I have had great results with those.

    You shouldn't have any problem this way and they are free........

    suzanne, im not familiar with internet abbreviations, but what are NIH or ACOG?...thankyou for replying

    NIH is National Institutes of Health
    ACOG is American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology

    If you use a search engine you may find thousands of articles but you want to make sure that they are from reputable sources. For this topic look for articles that have come from them.
    Another good one is eMedicine, or look at www.NYERRN.com
    They have alarge amount of literature available on almost any medical topic.

    Hope that this helps...........
