I was just told I have a friable cervix at my yearly appointment. Is this what has been causing sex to be painful for me? Does friable cervix go away?

Unlikely: Mots commonly when a cervix is described as "friable" it is related to some external process that is causing this to occur. Nonetheless, a "friable" cervix is a description of what the doctor observes and NOT a diagnosis. If you are having painful intercourse, further evaluation is required. Some infections can cause the cervix to become "friable, " however a "friable" cervix could also be normal.

I'm having ceRvix pain, could it Be dilating?

I'm having ceRvix pain, could it Be dilating?

Pregnant?: If you are pregnant and at full-term then that is certainly possible. If you are pregnant but not due to deliver yet, then please call your OB/GYN to let them know you have cervical pain. If you have discharge and fever then it could be an infection and that needs to be checked as well. If you are not pregnant then dilation is not likely and infection is much more likely.

What causes a tilted cervix? How can you fix it?

Probably normal.: A tilted cervix (or uterus) is just describing what the position of these organs is. It is not abnormal and does not need to be fixed. Some are tilted forward, some backward, and some right in the middle. One position is not better than the other. It is the way you were born. No worries!

Why is my cervix so low?

Why is my cervix so low?

Doctor can evaluate: "low" means different things to different people. A primary care doctor or an ob-gyn doctor can examine to see what the patient means by low. Plus, the doctor will ask about other symptoms with the female genitals, and will want to know if "low" is a new position, or is the way the uterus/cervix has always been.

What does a soft cervix mean?

It depends: If you are pregnant, cervical softening occurs as you progress through pregnancy, especially as you near delivery. If it occurs too early, your OB will watch you closely. If not pregnant, it's difficult to determine if there's any clinical significance without more information.

Human Papillomavirus: The most common cause of dysplasia of the uterine cervix is human papillomavirus (hpv). There are several hundred types, but 6, 11, 16, 18, 32, and 33 are the most common.
