Gynecology and STDs

Cerclage is indicated in a patient with a history of painless cervical dilation and a second trimester loss. It is also indicated in a patient with a history of preterm birth and a short cervix found on ultrasound between 16-24 weeks gestation. Cerclage placement occurs after the first trimester in case the pregnancy is genetically abnormal and would likely result in a first trimester loss.
