Why do I have pain in my cervix during sex when ovulating?

Why do I have pain in my cervix during sex when ovulating?

A little bleeding...: When you ovulate, a tiny bit of bleeding often occurs internally - not enough to put you in danger, but enough to irritate the lining of the internal organs. When you have sex, you are jostling those internal organs - and you may have pain. Naturally, you should be evaluated if pain persists for several hours. Lgromkomd. ...Read more

My cervix never rises during ovulation it only changes from hard to soft. Is this normal?

My cervix never rises during ovulation it only changes from hard to soft. Is this normal?

Yes.: It is very difficult and subjective to know whether your cervix rises during ovulation. Being able to tell it's soft is pretty good insight by itself. I wouldn't stress over this. If you are tracking discharge and basal body temp you have plenty of information to tell if you are ovulating. ...Read more

Why is my cervix always low and hard, even during my fertile/ovulation week.

Wrong Question: The right question is why are you feeling your cervix and worrying about it? Your cervix is normal. It is your cervix. There is ABSOLUTELY no medical or health reason for you to be feeling it and monitoring where it is or what it feels like. No medical reason or benefit to this unusual practice. ...Read more

Ok so if sperm can go through the cervix at anytime (not during ovulation) can you still conceive at anytime or a egg must be present?

Ovulation: is it possible to conceive before ovulation, or you must only conceive during or after ovulation? And how long can sperm live inside cervix

I have been trying to concieve and I have had all the test and evreything is fine, how do I get my cervix to open during ovulation to let the swimmers in as it's not opening?

Why do you say that?: Did your doctor tell you that your cervix isn't open or did it just feel that way to you? The cervical opening is small but the swimmers are much smaller. Since "everything is fine" that would include your cervical anatomy. If your cervix was closed, you wouldn't even menstruate. The only thing that might block the swimmers would be thick cervical mucus. Get clarification from your doctor. ...Read more

Can your cervix be soft, high and open and not ovulate?

Can your cervix be soft, high and open and not ovulate?

Yes: The muscles, epithelium and connective tissues which make up your cervix may not always reflect the hormonal changes of your cycle. A "soft, high and open cervix" may or may not be a sign that you ovulated. There are other more reliable ways you should explore with your gynecologist (Basal Body Temperature, changes in cervical mucus, ovulation tests/kits, etc.) ...Read more

Cervix stayed high and hard after ovulation and hasn't dropped. What do I do?

How will I know if I'm ovulating and when to check, I was thinking maybe trying to find my cervix but don't k ow what it feels like or how to find it?

Please don't: I don't know where it got started, but this year the popular vogue seems to be for women to check how 'high' their cervices are. This is the worst way I can think of trying to track ovulation: it's difficult to check and means nothing. Counting days, bbt, opk, even checking cervical mucus makes more sense. Good luck. ...Read more

Cervix is very soft and low few days after ovulation.?

Cervix is very soft and low few days after ovulation.?

No need to check: Cervical position and consistency is only relevant when you are pregnant especially in the late 3rd trimester. Hormonal changes during the menstrual cycle cause very subtle changes in the cervix that are not important to monitor. No judgments or clinical decision making can be accurately made based on cervical position or consistency in a non-pregnant patient. ...Read more
