My obgyn said that my cervix is closed. I am trying to get pregnant. Should I let him open it? I'm 36.

Need more info: If you have gotten pregnant in the past, I do not see any reason why your cervix should be closed now. Did you have any cryosurgery or any surgery done on your cervix since your last pregnancy? Are you getting your menstrual cycles? If you are bleeding, I doubt your cervix is closed. Maybe you need to clarify the issue with your doctor. Good Luck. ...Read more

I was told by my gyn that my cervix is closed. ... What do I have to do in order to be able to get pregnant?

? closed: Not sure what was meant by "closed." check with gyn on exact meaning.

The cervix does not have to be "visibly open" to get pregnant. Good luck. ...Read more

See your OB/GYN: First, it would be highly unlikely for your cervix to be "open" without being pregnant. Your gynecologist should be able to assess your cervix by physical examination and direct visualization. If your doctor thinks it is necessary, an ultrasound examination can also assess your uterus, cervix and ovaries. ...Read more

I have a tilted cervix is there a good position to try to get pregnant or should I just do the normal sex positions? Also when is the best time totry

Sex position: There was a time in gynecologic history where we would do surgery to bring the uterus and cervix in an up-right position thinking that would make the woman conceive more readily in a missionary position. We don't do this surgery any more, because we now think that sex position does not make a difference in a woman's capability to conceive. ...Read more

Is being pregnant the only reason that your cervix would be closed?

Cervix changes: Lets restate your question. Your cervix is normally closed. Reasons for it to open involve the passage of material through it. For example, your cervix opens to allow the passage of menstrual blood. It opens in labor to allow passage of the fetus. It can spontaneously open to allow passage of a pregnancy as in a miscarriage. So, normally it is closed. It opens so that the uterus empties. ...Read more

Can I still get pregnant if my cervix is low and hard?

Ovulation: Yes. Of course. You get pregnant when your ovary releases an egg if there is sperm there waiting to impregnate it. The position of your cervix has no bearing on your ability to conceive.
