cerclage "symptoms" ?
« on: February 07, 2017 at 12:48 AM »
Hi there -

Any of you have a cerclage out there? My question is kinda TMI... If you have a cerclage, are there times you go the bathroom and feel like you have a tampon in? Every once in a while I do, and it sometimes triggers my nerves that something negative is happening, but I feel like I remember the feeling in the past as something like that. (this is my third cerclage, you'd think I'd remember or be used to it, but somehow you forget and/or the fears can still nag at you!)

Thanks! Just needing some reassurance that feeling is "normalish."

Yes I think a lot of women feel this way. Extra blood flow to the area, maybe? I'm  also on progesterone shots which may contribute to the feeling.

I just had mine placed at 13.5 weeks.  First one for me, I'm not on bed rest as it was a "preventative" cerclage but the recovery is still painful.  I feel swollen and tender inside and some pressure like feelings. Not sure if it's "normal" or not?  I do sometimes feel a similar feeling of something there but it passes quickly.  I've got my first check up next Friday so hopefully things keep healing.  What kind of cerclage did you get? The macdonald or the Shidahkar?

I feel similar from time to time. When placing my progesterone,  I can't help but notice I feel a little swollen. I am not in pain and it's been awhile since my cerclage. I believe it to be vaginal rugae swelling.  ????

Yes, I had a similar uncomfortable feeling from time to time with both of my cerclages. It was worse right after the cerclage and later in the pregnancy.
