Sex with cerclage? Jessica2 Due November 22; 2 kids; Texas 270 posts

I had a cerclage placed about 3 weeks ago. After the procedure my maternal-fetal specialist said no sex for a couple of weeks. At my two week checkup after the cerclage my stitch was still good and my cervix was still long and closed. Has anyone had sex with a cerclage in? I've checked and I can feel the string or thread or whatever in there.

You are not supposed to have sex at all with a cerclage in, and you definitely should not be checking yourself. The cerclage already irritates the cervix, and is extremely prone to infection. Thats why you shouldn't have sex either, since you can get an infection very easily with one in.

Quoting Eme (1 + Twins):" What's a Cerclage?"

a stitch in the cervix to keep it closed, its for women with an incompetent cervix since they usually start to dilate early on in pregnancy.

You are in no way suppose to have sex with a cerclage, you risk tearing and infection and putting yourself into labor, i would check into a new doc if they tell you its ok.

I wouldn't take the risk, it was placed there for a reason and sex irritates ur uterus and cervix, if anything stick to external stimulation

not even that a orgasm causes the uterus to contract and you risk tearing the cerclage

WHOA.. You are checking yourself??? I wouldnt check myself or have sex with a cerclage.. especially knowing what the cerclage is for.. You know that you shouldnt even be having orgasms( like c**t stimulation) cause that can open the cervix right??

oh yeah thats right, I almost forgot about that part. My OB told me no sex, no oral, no nothing, because an orgasm is a contraction.

I had one with all 3 of my pregnancies, well first one was just suspected, and I lost my firstborn because of it. I had a cerclage with the other 2.
