Why is my cervix still very high and soft after ovulation ended. My period isn't due for another 5 days am I pregnant? Is this normal.

Why is my cervix still very high and soft after ovulation ended. My period isn't due for another 5 days am I pregnant? Is this normal.

Do hpt if you miss: Your period. Conception, as defined by the generation of a fertilized ovum, occurs within day or so of the sex. However, it takes about two weeks for the embryo to make enough HCG to produce a positive pregnancy test. Blood test may be done a day after a missed period. Home pregnancy tests should be done 4-5 days after the missed period. Use first morning urine and follow instructions for the test carefully. ...Read more

If my cervix is high soft and open after ovulation, could I be pregnant?

Why did my cervix go from low and firm to high and soft after ovulation?

Why did my cervix go from low and firm to high and soft after ovulation?

How long after ovulation is the cervix high and soft? I think I ovulated 3-4 days ago, I am also still having light cramping near ovaries

How long after ovulation is the cervix high and soft? I think I ovulated 3-4 days ago, I am also still having light cramping near ovaries

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

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

Do not worry: And please do not check your cervix, there is absolutely nothing of value you can tell by "checking" the cervix of a non-pregnant woman. It does not tell you anything about your ovulation, and may cause bleeding. Best wishes. ...Read more

After ovulation and the usual intercourse with MH. I've noticed that I can only feel one side of my cervix its high n soft. Should I be concern?

After ovulation and the usual intercourse with MH. I've noticed that I can only feel one side of my cervix its high n soft. Should I be concern?

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

I have mittenscherz ovulation like pain 2 days after ovulation on one side still. Why is this? All cervical mucus is dried up and cervix is now low.

Pelvic pain: Pelvic pain is a very complex issue with many possible causes. Mittelschmerz pain is brief and resolves quickly. If you are having persistent pain on one side then this likely warrants evaluation. See an Obgyn to be evaluated for ovarian cysts, infections and other possibilities. ...Read more

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

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

Impossible: It is impossible to conceive before ovulation because the egg hasn't come out yet. Sperm that made their way past the cervix can live about 3 days (occasionally longer, but that's hard to prove in an individual woman). ...Read more

How long after ovulation when becoming pregnant do cervix become firm and mucus plug begins to form?

How long after ovulation when becoming pregnant do cervix become firm and mucus plug begins to form?

1-2 days: The cervical mucus becomes thin and watery to allow sperm entry into the uterus and tubes. The change is largely related to the estrogen hormone increase leading to ovulation. After ovulation, the ovary produces Progesterone (p4), which prepares the endometrium for implantation. P4 also changes mucus to thick dense mucus blocking sperm. P4 in bcp also helps with contraception. ...Read more

Ovulation suspected, cervix high and soft slightly open, but no ewcd, instead watery clear discharge. Does this indicate low estrogen/ infertility?

Ovulation suspected, cervix high and soft slightly open, but no ewcd, instead watery clear discharge. Does this indicate low estrogen/ infertility?

Not likely: Low estrogen would actually usually cause a scant thick cervical mucus. You could always consider asking your doctor to do a post coital test and look for cervical mucus ferning as well. However, with the availability of ovulation prediction kits over the counter I would probably suggest using those first. ...Read more

On pill 12 days before having sex. Possible ovulation? Took plan b 31 hours after sex. 3 days after sex cervix high and soft. Possible pregnant?

Probably not: Plan b is 89% effective at preventing pregnancy and you are also on birth-control pills. So its unlikely that you are pregnant. Feeling your cervix isn't a reliable way to know if you are pregnant. Best wishes! ...Read more

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

If my cervix is high soft and open but I have a white sticky discharge what does that mean. Is it part of ovulation?

No: Checking your cervix is not a reliable way of checking for ovulation; it can cause bleeding and is simply not reliable, I wouldn't waste your time. Discharge can be associated with ovulation of course, but it's fairly non-specific. ...Read more
