Removing the IUD at 37 weeks pregnant is it possible to give birth early?
I have a cleft palate, I had a hysterectomy for 37 weeks before I removed it. In labor, I'll give birth between 38 and 40 weeks but in my case, I removed the ring. So the doctor asked me to remove the IUD at 37 weeks pregnant, is it possible to give birth early? Or must be 40 weeks to give birth? These days, I also feel a little stomachache and backache, I'm more tired and sometimes I have abdominal pain under the vagina.
Looking forward to the doctor's advice, thank you!

With the question "Is it possible to give birth early if removing the IUD at 37 weeks pregnant? ", the doctor would like to answer as follows:
Cleft cervix is a condition in which the cervix thins and opens before the fetus is large enough for the baby to be born. This is one of the causes of sudden miscarriage in pregnant women. Cervical cerclage is a procedure of stitching a circle around the cervix to narrow the hole in the uterus, protect the baby's safety in the abdomen, and prevent miscarriage and premature birth. Cervical suture removal will be performed when the fetus is 37-38 weeks old, or when the pregnant woman shows signs of labor.
If you remove the ring at 37 weeks pregnant, you will go into labor any time after removing the IUD. A normal pregnancy into labor is between 38 and 40 weeks.
If you still have questions about removing the IUD at 37 weeks pregnant, you can give birth early, you can go to the hospital of Vinmec Health System for further examination and advice. Thank you for trusting and sending questions to Vinmec. Wishing you lots of health.
