Chorion -- One of the fetal membranes. It surrounds the fetus and is outside the amnion. By approximately 16 weeks, the amnion fuses to the chorion to form a unified double membrane, the "chorio-amniotic" membrane.


CERVICAL STENOSIS- A blockage of the cervical canal. This is usually from complications of cervical surgery and rarely from congenital defects.
CETROTIDE (CETRORELIX)- A GnRH antagonist drug used to inhibit premature LH surges.

Use of Tuohy needle for intraamniotic methotrexate injection through the cervical canal in a cervical pregnancy after failure of systemic methotrexate treatment.

Cervical Stenosis: A blockage of the cervical canal from a congenital defect or from complications of surgical procedures. See also Cervix. Cervix: The opening between the uterus and the vagina.

Laminaria: a rod made of kelp (seaweed) that when placed in the cervical canal absorbs moisture, swells, and gradually dilates the cervix. Used to help induce labor.

This involves an internal examination, and a gloved index finger is then passed into the cervical canal to stretch and sweep the area where the membranes are in approximation to the upper part of the cervix.

A thick mucinous secretion that is present inside the cervical canal. It is produced by glandular cells that are present in the cervix. This mucus protects the uterus from invasion by bacteria present in the vagina.

The cervical canal shortens from 2 cm to paper thin edges and the canal itself disappears. Only the external opening of the uterus remains of what was the cervix.

Cervical Stenosis: Narrowing of the cervical canal in such a way that menstrual flow can partially or completely be impeded. It is often the result of cervical injury due to surgery such as cone biopsy done for an abnormal Pap smear.

Sometimes the placenta implants itself very low down on the uterine wall, occasionally right over the cervical canal. This is called placenta praevia and it occurs in about two percent of women.

Antepartum haemorrhaging is often caused by a problem with the placenta, such as placenta praevia, where the afterbirth lies over the cervical canal, or placental abruption, which is due to separation of the placenta.

If your health care provider is concerned about preterm labor, he or she may test a swab from your cervical canal for the presence of fetal fibronectin.

CERVICAL MUCUS - The sticky, thick mucus produced by glands in the cervical canal that plugs the opening of the cervix.

The mucus plug is the small amount of thickened mucus that blocks the cervical canal leading to your uterus. The plug may come out all at once in a lump, or as increased vaginal discharge over the course of several days.

It is then placed in a catheter, which is used to pass the semen directly into the cervical canal. For each ICI attempt, you'll need to be inseminated at your clinic or doctor's office.

The cervical mucus plugs the cervical canal and normally prevents foreign materials from entering the reproductive tract. The cervix remains closed during pregnancy and dilates during labor and delivery to allow the baby to be born.

The cervical mucus is becoming thicker and it will form a plug in the cervical canal. This plug seals the cervix throughout your pregnancy and will be expelled just before you deliver the baby, when the cervix begins to dilate.

In fact, sperm can be found in the cervical canal mere seconds after ejaculation, regardless of position.

An accumulation of thick clear secretions in the cervical canal.

A woman who has been pregnant more than once regardless of whether she carried the pregnancy to term.

The mucous plug has been there throughout your pregnancy to block the opening to your cervical canal and prevent bacteria from entering.

By the seventh week, the cervix has started to soften and the mucus plug at the cervical canal is formed. This "plug" seals off the uterus from the outside world and will remain in place until shortly before labor.

At this point, you will develop a mucus plug, which forms in the opening of the cervical canal and seals off the uterus for protection.
Specific developments that occur during this week include the following: ...

How it works: This involves inserting a sperm sample, which is specially prepared, directly into the cervical canal through a thin, flexible tube. Women often take a fertility drug (like Clomid) as well, to increase their chances of fertilization.

Mucus Plug - A thick plug of mucus that blocks the cervical canal during pregnancy.

Since adequate sampling of the TZ is so important, adding the "cyto-"brush as a second part of the cell retrieval has improved on sampling. This brush is actually inserted into the cervical canal itself a bit, making more likely crossing the TZ.

You might feel like you have PMS with your emotional ups and downs.
By the 7th week of your pregnancy, a mucous plug now blocks the cervical canal, helping prevent germs from getting into your uterus.
