In a way: There is some variation in the opening of the cervix throughout your monthly cycle. It doesn't dilate in the sense that you dilate at the time of delivery to 10 centimeters or more, but there is a cyclic variation, (very mild), as you prepare to bleed

Should be the same: The cervix is located at the tip of the uterus. It is comprises of the opening of the birth canal. Its anatomical position should not change with the menstrual cycle.
