Incompetent Cervix

An incompetent cervix may result from surgery for an ASCUS pap smear. Premature delivery when pregnant is linked to the narrow outer end of the uterus or the cervical area. If this opening has the inability to remain closed for the duration of a pregnancy, a premature birth will occur. A weakening of the cervical lining usually causes this. An incompetent cervix may result from surgery for an ASCUS pap smear.
