Effaced Cervix

Effaced cervix is normal during pregnancy; however, cervical cancer can affect hormonal responsiveness, but is diagnosed from a cone biopsy. Cervical effacement is the thinning of the cervical opening in preparation for birth. It is expressed in percentages: if you begin pushing, the effacement is 100%. The effacement and dilation can begin a month before the delivery, or it can wait until the last few hours. Effaced cervix is normal during pregnancy; however, cervical cancer can affect hormonal responsiveness, but is diagnosed from a cone biopsy.
