Pessary Ring
« on: July 10, 2019 at 02:46 PM »
Is there anyone out there who currently has one, or has had one with a previous pregnancy?

I'm a 40yo FTM.  24w today!  Funneling with 3cm cervix discovered at 22w scan.  Follow-up a week later was 1.7cm.  Was put on progesterone suppositories and pelvic rest.  Back in a week later and found cervix was about the same.  I was recommended against a cerclage and asked for a second opinion at which point the doctor discovered the techs measurements were inaccurate, cervix is actually measuring 2.1-2.5cm.  This dr. also advised against cerclage because of how far along I am and no history of preterm birth.  She did mention a pessary ring is possible and there are little to no risks.  I think for peace of mind I will have one put in later this week.  Anyone had experience with one?
