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

My obgyn said that my cervix is closed. I am trying to get pregnant. Should I let him open it? I'm 36.

My obgyn said that my cervix is closed.  I am trying to get pregnant.  Should I let him open it? I'm 36.

Need more info: If you have gotten pregnant in the past, I do not see any reason why your cervix should be closed now.

Maybe you need to clarify the issue with your doctor. Good Luck. ...Read more
