Hello, I'm a 29-year-old woman and had two consecutive miscarriages of an 18-week pregnancy...

I was diagnosed with an incompetent cervix after having this trauma. Really it's been a very painful time for me... I don't know what to do. Here I just want to share my story...

I got married in the year 2015 and since then was on fertility treatment. It all went to waste as I conceived naturally in the month of October in 2017 and on Feb 8th had a miscarriage due to the opening of my cervix.

After that, I got pregnant again in June 2018 and had cervical stitches at the 13 weeks of pregnancy but still, it didn't work for me and had abortion on October 8 2018.
