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.
i guess its never totally closed? so i should say in early pregnancy the cervix is "closed".
The cervical opening should be small in the early stages of pregnancy. A closed cervix is a good indicator of a healthy pregnancy.
my cervix is high soft and closed and I'm 5 weeks preg.
During early pregnancy your cervix should not .....repeat not be open (dilated) at all. Later in your third trimester you may become 1-2cm dilated, this is a sign that labor is near.
The cervix is normal until a woman starts going into labor.
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.
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. My advice is go to the doctor and tell them your concern there are tests they can do and sooner rather than later is better.
i was told by my doctor that the normal length of cervix canal during pregnancy should be 30mm.
for most women high and soft but some women already have a low lying cervix prior to falling pregnant. So High or Low & Soft.
During pregnancy, the cervix becomes closed and blue or purple in color. Also the cervical mucus tends increase due to hormonal changes.
that's a sign that you have AIDS and syphallis
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.
The cervix extends into your vagina and fills with mucus during pregnancy, this is called the mucus plug which is a protective barrier. When you're pregnant the cervix position is firm, long and closed until the third trimester
The cervix sits higher, it becomes thicker and develops a bluish color, very early in pregnancy. It eventually opens so that the baby can proceed through the birthing canal and out of the mother's body.
There is no specific "position" for the cervix to be in, if conception has occured. It will vary from woman to woman, and should not be relied upon to determine conception and pregnancy.
Sometimes there is light bleeding (of the pinkish variety) after intercourse because the cervix is very sensitive when you are pregnant. Always keep a eye on ANY bleeding though. Congrats on your pregnancy!
First and toward the end
Cervix can be more tender in Pregnancy. So any exams or sex could cause discomfort. If you are ready to deliver it could be the baby putting pressure on the cervix or dilation. Hard to say not knowing anymore details. When in doubt call your ob. mom of 2
A womans cervix changes while her body is going through ovulation, period, progesterone cycles and vaginal discharge. I wouldn't rely on the cervix as being a indication of pregnancy. Do a pregnancy test.
The cervix will normally feel firm (like the tip of your nose) when not pregnant. In pregnancy, the cervix normally rises (is higher up) and is softer (like feeling your lips with your fingers). This may vary between women and can sometimes not be noticed until late pregnancy so it is not a reliable indicator of pregnancy.
