Brief Answer:
Its normal

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
I have gone through your question and understand your concerns.

Slight vaginal discharge is common after cervical cerclage and in pregnancy.
The discharge should not be associated with blood or pain in abdomen.
If discharge is excessive or watery, then you should consult your doctor for proper internal examination to rule out any leakage of membranes.

Hope you found the answer helpful. Feel free to get back in case of any further queries

Hello doctor,

yes, i avoid straining myself. But i am suffering from extreme gas these days because of which i often have abdominal bloating. I am currently on strict bed rest for 15 days after i had my cervical stitches hence cant even have any physical activity of walk after meals.
Could you please suggest something which can relieve me of these gastric pains.
I am also currently on the dose of 400 mg susten twice a day because of short cervix (2 cm approx.)

Thanks,
XXXX
