Thanks for the query.
I understand your concern.
According to your description your doctor might have told regarding the possibility of cervical incompetence, means pregnant woman cervix dilate and efface prematurely.
This can be diagnosed in intermenstrual period according to the number of dilator that can be passed.
If cervical incompetence is diagnosed, in next pregnancy you can go for cervical stitch in early gestation to prevent miscarriage.
