What could sharp cervix pain a week before a period mean?

What could sharp cervix pain a week before a period mean?

Advise gyn exam: The cervix is the opening to the uterus, so, in addition to cervical problems, anything that causes uterine pain can cause cervical pain.

Been on Tricira Lo 28 for a year now. Taken regularly. Had unprotected sex 2 days before period was scheduled. Cervix is low, hard & open. Pregnant?

Unlikely: If you have been taking your BCP daily it is unlikely you are pregnant. The cervix is usually closed with pregnancy and cervixes can be in every position. If you fail to have your period, run a pregnancy test 1-2 weeks after your missed cycle. All the best. ...Read more

Does it make sense to have a high firm cervix before period, but high soft cervix during and after? Side note: this cycle included large clumps. PCOS

Does it make sense to have a high firm cervix before period, but high soft cervix during and after? Side note: this cycle included large clumps. PCOS

Yes: During your period the cervical opening will enlarge, and the cervix will soften a bit, often it is a bit more soft and filled with blood in its vessels.
Between your periods, specifically before your period, more blood is going to the lining of the uterus so less blood is going to the cervix, making it harder and therefore sitting a bit higher. ...Read more

Is it normal to get egg white discharge & hard cervix a few days before period? No chance of being pregnant.

Is it normal to get egg white discharge & hard cervix a few days before period? No chance of being pregnant.

Perhaps: Vaginal discharge changes throughout the menstrual cycle. If this always happens to you every month then it is likely normal. If this is a new change for you then you may want to have the discharge tested for infection. The consistency and feel of the cervix is not something one needs to pay much attention to. Very few conclusions can be made from the way cervix feels except during labor ...Read more

Creamy while cervical fluid, soft cervix, no period pains, feeling sick and gagging 1 day before period. Am I pregnant?

Don’t guess.: Take a test.  They are the same tests used in a doctors office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period.  If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection ...Read more
