I was told I have a closed cervix and have to be dilated every 3mo to try and conceive, this was very painful, do I have other options for conception?

I was told I have a closed cervix and have to be dilated every 3mo to try and conceive, this was very painful, do I have other options for conception?

Absolutely: Cervical stenosis usually improves with cervical dilation. I'm sorry it's painful, a paracervical block usually makes this more comfortable. It's also unusual to have to do this more than once. Consider intrauterine insemination with or without ovulation induction. If it's that painful, maximize your odds and see an rei or an ob/gyn more experienced in these procedures. Good luck to you. ...Read more

Polyps appeared on cervix 7wks after conception. Was it estrogen that made them grow? Were they inside and pregnancy pushed them out? Thoughts? Obgyn?

Polyps appeared on cervix 7wks after conception. Was it estrogen that made them grow? Were they inside and pregnancy pushed them out? Thoughts? Obgyn?

Yes & yes: You pretty much know the answers. An increase in size of course makes them more noticeable. Bleeding makes them more noticeable, otherwise, why would you look? They do tend to extrude more in pregnancy because of the above & also because the cervix softens, slightly opens, making it easier for polyps to be seen. It was probably always there, now it's bigger, badder & causing trouble, still ok. ...Read more

Is it true that simultanious orgasm of partners increases a chance of conception and a woman on top is not useful position for conception?

Is it true that simultanious orgasm of partners increases a chance of conception and a woman on top is not useful position for conception?

No and No: Simultaneous orgasm has nothing to do with the chances of conception though it can be emotionally satisfying for those with the skill to do this!
there is no evidence that position makes any difference at all though it is recommended that women lie down (perhaps with hips on a small pillow) for 10-15 minutes after intercourse.

I have a tilted cervix is there a good position to try to get pregnant or should I just do the normal sex positions? Also when is the best time totry

Sex position: There was a time in gynecologic history where we would do surgery to bring the uterus and cervix in an up-right position thinking that would make the woman conceive more readily in a missionary position. We don't do this surgery any more, because we now think that sex position does not make a difference in a woman's capability to conceive. ...Read more

35wk n 5 pregnant n my dr said I loss my mucus plug n I was 2cm soft? N my cervix were really soft n my baby's heads already in position? Mean?

See details: You used a lot of question marks without actually asking a question. You should be able to feel it when the baby's head drops into position. This can occur as early as 32-34 weeks but it does not necessarily mean you will deliver early. It usually engages at 37-38 weeks. ...Read more

Need an exam: You really need a pelvic exam to assess whether the cervix is now open or closed. There are different kinds of stages of abortion and the position/opening of the cervix can determine what stage you are in. The only way really know this is to have your doctor look at see if the cervix is open or closed.
