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 pregnancy, the cervix is thick and closed, and about all you can feel or see is the very outside of the opening (called the os) where the baby will eventually come out of. There is no reason the cervix should be felt, unless there are complications, after your initial OB visit, until you are close to your due date (usually about a month from it is when most physicians will start checking to see if you have dilated).

Response 2: I think the reality is, never insert anything dirty or sharp into the vagina. Common sense everyone. Unless you already know that you have some sort of problem that would prohibit self examination or sex during pregnancy, please go somewhere else for the proper research and answer to this question, which was valid, important, and completely natural for a woman who wanted to know. There are many amazing websites out there that show pictures of the cervix and provide accurate and interesting information. You can feel your cervix.

It shouldn't, in pregnancy a cervix should be closed if your cerix was open more that 2.5 mm they would consider you for a 'stitch' to ensure that the cervix is closed and the baby isn't born early.

The cervix has no bearing on early symptoms of pregnancy; you are confusing facts about what happens to the cervix during labor. The cervix always feels "hard" except in labor. The best determiner of pregnancy is HPT or a blood test which both look for a rise in hormones.

Where should the cervix be in early pregnancy?

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 more like an almost over-ripe plum. It becomes very tender and engorged with blood, especially early on in pregnancy.In the early stages of pregnancy you may notice that your cervix will rise a bit and become softer, but the timing of this happening will vary from woman to woman. You may see the change in your cervix shortly before your period is due or you may not feel this for several weeks.As the pregnancy progresses you will probably have an increase in vaginal discharge, but the cervical mucous is fairly minimal during pregnancy. Some women may notice a change in their cervix in very early pregnancy but cervical position is not a good sign of pregnancy. That is because the cervix changes not only from woman to woman but from day to day and could even be different in the same woman at different times of the day. I would recommend to check your cervix right after your period ends and check it every day, at the same time, in the same position. That way you know how your cervix is suppose to feel at what point during your cycle and if it doesn't feel that it's suppose to you could use that to help you determine pregnancy. For a woman that doesn't check her cervix regularly I would say it's next to impossible to determine if she's pregnant or not by checking it. Your cervix should be high just like during ovulation, except closed. It will also still feel soft, more like lips. Unless you've been checking your cervix consistently there is almost no way to tell where you are in your cycle through this method. Remember to wash your hands before you check, but other than that, you should have no problems with infection. Just don't get your hopes up that you'll be able to detect pregnancy through your cervical position, especially if you haven't been monitoring it's position already.

Sewing up the cervix holding the baby longer?

When a woman's cervix is weak (sometimes called an incompetent cervix) she is more likely to have a baby born prematurely because the cervix shortens or opens too early. In order to prevent premature labor, a woman's doctor may recommend a cervical cerclage. A cerclage is used to prevent these early changes in a woman's cervix, thus preventing premature labor. A closed cervix helps a developing baby stay inside the uterus until the mother reaches 37-38 weeks of pregnancy. Treatment for cervical incompetence is a surgical procedure called cervical cerclage, in which the cervix is sewn closed during pregnancy. The cervix is the lowest part of the uterus and extends into the vagina.

Is it possible for the cervix to be open during early pregnancy when you are only 5 weeks and 6 days If yes what causes this and is it a sign of an impending miscarriage?

it is called an incompetent cervix, it can be caused by damaged during a previous birth or a previous surgury on the cervix. and from the cervix bein open it can cause a miscarriage, so that wouldn't happen you would need a cerclage which is a procedure in which the doctor will sew the cervix closed with sutures to reinforce the cervix and prevent it from dilating to early... hopefully this would help you because it sure helped me

What is effaced in pregnancy?

Effaced relates to the cervix. When you go into early labour the cervix which has been long and closed starts to draw up around the baby's head with contractions or downward pressure of the baby's head. When a cervix is effaced it is no longer long, the next step is dilation.

The Position of Your Cervix in Early Pregnancy Many women, who are trying to conceive, will be looking for physical signs that they are pregnant. The most common early signs of pregnancy include: # Tender or swollen breasts # Backaches # Constipation # Darkening of areola # Excessive salivation # Exhaustion or feeling sleepy # Food cravings # Frequent urination # Headaches # Increased sense of smell # Lower abdominal cramps # Nausea and vomiting For women who track their cervical position in order to determine fertility, many wonder if there correlation between the position of the cervix and early pregnancy. Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be a simple answer for all women. The position of the cervix during pregnancy does change but not at the same time in all women. After ovulation, your cervix will drop lower in your vagina and feel firm, like the tip of your nose. During pregnancy, the cervix will rise a bit and become softer, but the timing of this happening will vary from woman to woman. For some, this will happen shortly before their period is due, but for other, this will not happen until quite a while after their pregnancy has been confirmed. Due to this variation between women, checking the position of your cervix to determine pregnancy is not a reliable indication of whether or not your are pregnant. More reliable ways to find out if you are pregnant is take a sensitive home pregnancy test or by visiting your doctor for a pregnancy blood test. I hope you get the answer you wish!! Good luck to you :)
