Ob-Gyn questions? Ask a gynecologist online.
Hi, It's Dr. C. Board certified Ob-gyne. I can help you today.
I'm sorry you're having some trouble. Just to clarify, it sounds like they've been measuring your cervix and the length went down from 2.6 cm to 2 cm within 2 weeks. Do you know the name of the prescription gel they prescribed? That would be helpful for me to understand more what they're thinking in going on. Research doesn't support that bedrest helps although if a womans job is stressful and she is on her feet a lot, it could help to cut down on work hours.
Please add more details and let me know what I can clarify or explain more. I'd like to be sure you get the most helpful information for your situation.
Progesterone gel is used to try to delay preterm birth. Hopefully all will go well. Stay well hydrated enough so that the urine is light yellow. This will decrease the chance of contractions.
Anything else I can clarify or help with more details about?
If no more questions, please leave a rating for my service. I aim for excellent and appreciate your feedback. Thanks and good luck.
