Cervical stenosis is a narrowing of the cervix, the opening to the uterus. The cervix is a muscular tube that connects the uterus to the vagina. It is lined with a mucus plug that helps to keep sperm and bacteria out of the uterus. The cervix also opens and closes during menstruation and childbirth.
The most common symptom of cervical stenosis is difficulty getting pregnant. Other symptoms may include:
Cervical stenosis can be caused by a variety of factors, including:
Cervical stenosis can be diagnosed with a physical exam and a pelvic exam. The doctor may also order a hysterosalpingogram (HSG), which is an X-ray that can be used to look for blockages in the fallopian tubes and cervix.
There are a number of treatment options available for cervical stenosis. The best treatment for you will depend on the severity of your stenosis and your overall health.
There is no sure way to prevent cervical stenosis. However, there are a few things you can do to reduce your risk, such as:
Cervical stenosis can be a cause of infertility, but it is important to note that it is not the sole cause of infertility in all cases. If you are having difficulty getting pregnant, it is important to see a doctor to be evaluated for all possible causes of infertility.

The chances of getting pregnant with cervical stenosis vary depending on the severity of the stenosis and other factors, such as your age and overall health. However, some studies have shown that women with cervical stenosis have a lower pregnancy rate than women without cervical stenosis.

There are a few things you can do to improve your chances of getting pregnant with cervical stenosis, such as: * Timing intercourse during your most fertile days * Using fertility-enhancing medications, such as Clomid or Femara * Undergoing in vitro fertilization (IVF)
