I have one now and I am 38 1/2 wks EDD (39+ by my count). My OBGYN says it will not cause any problem, but I am not a trusting person. This is my 4th baby and I am barely dilated, which concerns me.

If any of you have had one in a PRIOR pregnancy, I am curious if it interfered with dilation. (Also, was it still there afterwards or did it burst?

TIA

Hi- I am a midwife, and really nabothian cysts are no biggie and will not effect dilation. I have one, too. I am very familiar with them and cervixes in general, it never even crossed my mind as a worry that it would effect my labor. I am very analytical and paranoid about my own health issues, too, so its saying a lot that I did not consider it a thing to worry about before my own labor! I'd say the advice was right on, relax. And it does not make a diff how dilated you are in advance- you can be 4cm and stay preg for weeks, or be closed and have your baby that night. It does not predict length of labor well wither, so just relax and know the time is near! And I am not sure if its still there,I think its gone because now that you mention it I have not noticed it, and it was very prominent before birth.

Oh gosh, thank you! I have done so many searches and not found any mention of how they affect pregnancy. I guess I am anxious for lots of reasons, but I was way more dialted a lot earlier with the other babies, so this seemed a reasonable explaination. (to me)


I REALLY appreciate your taking the time to respond!
