Cervix seems very sensitive during early pregnancy (4 wks). Brown spotting and bleeding after sex. Is a test of progesterone level needed?
No: The cervical blood vessels can be very near the surface. They are more engorged with blood and become more fragile due to the pregnancy and increased estrogen. The cervix always seems more "touchy" and cramps during pregnancy. All of this is normal. But you should be checked to make sure there is no other cause for your bleeding. Read more
Cervical position: This topic comes up a lot online for some unknown reason. Your cervical position is monitored during labor and as a tool to predict labor during pregnancy.

Slightly blue: Because of increased blood flow to the uterus in response to the pregnancy, the cervix (which is the tip of the uterus) will tend to have a slightly blue tint as well as more prominent blood vessels with a tendency to bleed slightly on contact.

Friable?: I'm going to make a guess here: you mean "friable' not 'pliable.'

Pliable is like flexible, that is not used to describe a woman's cervix. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
NO, HIGH/CLOSED: In early pregnancy the cervix is closed and 'fairly high' in the vagina unless there is 'significant pelvic relaxation' from previous vaginal deliveries. If the cervix dilates in early pregnancy, then a miscarriage may result. This problem usually occurs ~14 weeks and is referred to as 'incompetent cervix'. Because the baby is well protected, sex is ok in pregnancy unless there is a complication. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
