Cervix: Cervical position has basically no bearing on anything except during child birth and orgasm. Orgasm as it changes position to be more available to accept sperm. Birth to allow for delivery. Where it is now has no bearing on pregnancy. If an egg was fertilized and implanted determines pregnancy.
