Cervical Incompetence Facts

How common is cervical incompetence?

About 20 percent of miscarriages that occur between 16 and 24 weeks of pregnancy are believed to stem from an incompetent cervix.

Miscarriages caused by cervical incompetence occur with scant warning. Some women have subtle symptoms, such as backaches or heavy vaginal discharge, but there may be little or no bleeding or pain until it's too late.
