Thank you for your query.
WIth your history, conception is going to be definitely risky.
However, there is no contraindication to trying for a pregnancy.
Please remember to have regular antenatal care under an experienced obstetrician right from the beginning.
Cervical encerclage will have to take place earlier than your previous pregnancy in future.
ensure bedrest, avoid sexual activity and take regular supplements as will be prescribed to avoid preterm labour.
Have hope and wish you all the best for your future pregnancy.
take care.
