Cervical Position During Pregnancy:
During pregnancy the cervical positon changes, although not at the same time for all women. Many women use their cervical position to detect ovulation and now more are getting into attempting to detect a pregnancy by checking their cervical position. This may become difficult however because the position of the cervix may not change at the time a women wants it to, it may not change until after she has detected a pregnancy or she may just have a hard time deciphering the difference between each cervical position. Some women use the position of their cervix in early pregnancy as a symptom of pregnancy. Many report feeling the position of their cervix to be low and the cervix to be very hard about a week before their expected menstrual cycle is due and than it rises and becomes a lot softer. Some report having such a soft cervix is feels sensitive or tender.
Check Cervical Postion for Pregnancy
The complicated part is to know how to tell the difference between each cervical position. Some have mastered this and some have no clue what they are feeling for. I have heard that once you feel your cervix during pregnancy you will just know. Others say that you will master it in no time and that you just need to listen to your body and get help from others. The hardest part may be that as soon as you think you have it your cycle ends and the next one is nothing like the cycle before. Practise makes perfect!
To check the position of your cervix insert a clean finger, generally your middle one because it is the longest, into your vagina. Be sure that your hands are washed and even better right after, or during, a shower to lower the risk of infection. Your cervix is about as far back as your middle finger will go, especially right before you ovulate when your cervical position is at it’s highest point. To see more about your cervical position during your cycle you may want to see “Cervical Position”. Right after you ovulate your cervix will drop and feel hard, almost the same as the tip of a nose; this is often referred to as a low cervix. Than in early pregnancy your cervical position will rise back up but not as much as before pregnancy. Your cervix will also become very soft. You want to feel around for these changes with your middle finger. Generally speaking, your cervix is the ‘end’ of your vagina. This part can also become tricky if you have a tilted uterus as your cervix will be generally harder to find and further up; you may not be able to reach it. You may want to keep a journal for your cervical position everyday to start to get the hang of it.
During early pregnancy, your cervix will raise higher and get softer; this is referred to as a high cervix or a high cervical position. The timing will vary from women to women and it is hard to pin-point, especially because it will change from cycle to cycle. For some, their cervical position in early pregnancy will rise right before their expected menstrual cycle is due. For others, their cervical position will not rise until a while after they already know they are pregnant. To see what your cervical position should be before you ovulate and when you ovulate see “Cervical Position”.
