Does The Cervix Open Can Close Again?
Hello … I want to ask … my uterus is 39 weeks 2 days ago, I checked the VT at the midwife, said he had opened 2 then given the medicine that was put into miss V to soften the cervix, he said the effect of the drug after max 6 hours mules … mmg the mules arrived out of the blood spots and were checked for opening 4 to 5, but after opening 5 there was no opening and the mules disappeared, until now there was no mules yet … “he said the baby’s head was still not going down about 12cm anymore Towards the mouth of the uterus and the midwife suggests just wait for the natural mules because the amniotic sac is still safe ,, guess “as long as I wait for the mules there won’t be any effect ” on the baby … ?? and what after opening the 5 cervixs won’t close anymore. . ?? mksh
Hello Aurel, thank you for asking.
The labor process is divided into several parts called kala. On stage 1 the opening is generally still narrow and takes place slowly. At stage 2 the opening is almost complete, the contractions are strong and regular, the baby's head has entered the pelvis and birth canal. In total, for mothers who are giving birth for the first time, labor will be considered long if it exceeds 20 hours. For women who have given birth, it will be considered a long delivery if more than 14 hours. There are several possibilities that cause labor to run slowly, namely:
The contraction is not strong enough The size of the baby is too large to be able to pass through the pelvis The umbilical cord in the baby The position of the baby is abnormal There are several risks in prolonged labor, namely: premature rupture of membranes so that the amniotic fluid is dry Fetal respiratory distress The fetus has abnormal heart rate Fetal poisoning meconium Infection of the fetus and mother The mouth of the uterus that is already open will not close again. But it must be considered whether the contractions arise that are getting stronger and regular, whether the water comes out with mucous blood from the vagina, whether fetal movement is reduced, if there is severe pain in the uterus. If there are these signs, you should immediately go to the hospital so that the obstetrician can assess the progress of your labor and the condition of your fetus. The doctor may perform induction to stimulate contractions. If these actions do not succeed, then maybe the doctor will take the path of surgery to save the fetus and mother.
Hopefully this information can help you. Regards.
