What are some ways to dilate the cervix?

Medications, bulbs.

Cervix
Cervical ripening is generally done with mechanical means (e.g. catheters with inflatable bulbs/balloons at their end), or with laminaria (for midtrimester pregnancy terminations), or with medications (cervidil, cytotec etc). Oxytocin infusion can also help dilate the cervix to trigger labor.

Does your cervix dilate during your period?

Cervix and period

Cervix
The cervix will open very slightly while a woman is on her period. It is nothing close to the amount of dilation that happens during labor.

Dr. Paula Hillard answered:

Does the cervix dilate throughout your cycle?

Very slightly

Cervix
There are very small changes in the size of the opening of the cervix during the menstrual cycle. This small amount of dilation at the time of ovulation when the cervix is slightly more open, is much less "dilation" than occurs in labor (up to 10 cm).

Do Braxton hicks contractions cause your cervix to dilate?

No

Contraction
The definition of Braxton Hicks contractions are false contractions but do not cause your cervix to dilate. If your cervix is dilating, they are real contractions.
