Ask questions here about the female's cervix position during pregnancy.
It is possible that you are pregnant, but it sounds to me like you are about to start your period. If you think you are pregnant, you should take a home test or go see a doctor.   Yes, you very well can be but you won't really know until you take a test. I suggest you wait a week to take the …

During ovulation the cervix is soft, high,open and wet. Around the time of menstruation the cervix is low and hard. I've heard OB/GYNs making this analogy when referring to a pregnant vs. non-pregnant cervix: A non-pregnant cervix feels like a hard, unripe piece of fruit, while a pregnant cervix is …

Some women's cervixes are low down and there is no medical cause for this. It can be a genetic cause. It's completely normal, as women's uteruses can be tipped in different positions. But your doctor will be able to examine you and tell you if he thinks further investigations need to be arranged.

Answer Your cervix should be closed and I don't recommend poking around to find out. It is said that a never pregnant cervix feels like the tip of your nose, and after being pregnant it feels like pursed lips. It will feel the same pregnant as non-pregnant so if it is your first baby it w…

Response 1: You should not be attempting to feel your cervix at any time during pregnancy. Please leave this to your physician to do--if you were to use too much pressure or attempt to insert anything into your vagina, you might end up doing damage to your unborn baby. Until the very end stages of p…

Well, it does vary from woman to woman, and from day to day. I've read that changes in the cervix do not even occur until about 2 weeks after implantation.

A cervix does not necessarily feel different during early pregnancy. A firm feeling cervix that has drop lower to the usual position may be an indicator for a pregnancy, but this may also be the case during common menstrual cycles and might not be related to a pregnancy at all.
