If you have an incompetent cervix, you might not experience any signs or symptoms as your cervix begins to open during early pregnancy. Mild discomfort over the course of several days or weeks is possible, however, starting at week 15 to week 20 of pregnancy. Be on the lookout for:

  • A sensation of pelvic pressure
  • A backache
  • Mild abdominal cramps
  • A change in vaginal discharge
  • Light vaginal bleeding
