Welcome to HCM,

Your doctor has advised cervical stitch also known as Cervical cerclage (tracheloplasty). As you had previous miscarriage and preterm delivery your doctor has advised cervical stitch.

No need to worry follow your doctor advise and hope everything will be fine.

Hi, Welcome to HCM, I am Dr. Das
Yes, it is ok.
From your history, it is evident that there is cervical incompetence which means your uterus cannot hold the baby by itself. So, doctors are just trying to give support to the baby which will prevent any further miscarriage. And before delivery, the stiches will be removed .
