Does The Cervix Close As We Age
I am 25 years of age. And up until my last gyno appt, she told me my cervix is tilted. And hasn't been and just tilted recently. Why is that?

Had a high, soft cervix for nearly 4 weeks. Age 37 — this has never happened before. Not pregnant, no pain or bleeding. What could be causing it?
What age group has the highest probability of developing invasive cervical cancer (uterine cervix)?
Late 40's in US.: The mean age at diagnosis of cervical cancer in the United States from 2000 to 2004 was 48 years. Only 5.7 percent of cases were diagnosed in women age 85 years or older. From 2000 to 2004, the United States age-adjusted incidence of cervical cancer in girls under-age 20 was 0.1 per 100, 000, rising to 1.5 per 100, 000 in women age 20 to 24 years, and then ranging from 11.0 to 15.8 per 100, 000 for w. ...Read more
Why an open cervix during onset of menopause and is this causing constant bleeding? Have had a biopsy, blood work, ultrasound, and cryoblasion. Test results all fine, cryo not successful.
The cervix can remain open before an after menopause, although typically it will be slightly open and even appear closed to the naked eye. The cervix being open does not cause constant bleeding, it merely is a portal so to speak for the blood to come out. The bleeding is likely coming from your uterus. Was the biopsy an endometrial biopsy, which is a biopsy of the lining of your uterus? Have you had a ct scan of your abdomen and pelvis? Typically, when a woman is having constant vaginal bleeding and is peri or post menopausal then a hysterectomy may be an option. Did your doctor discuss this with you? Also are you anemic due to all the bleeding? If you are unsure, make sure you are tested right away.
Please don't hesitate to submit further information. ...Read more

Will undergoing stitches for my cervix under general anesthesia affect my twin fetuses? Is it safe? I am aged 42, 16w2d pregnant. What is the ideal week?
Ideally in 2nd 3mths: When the likelihood of spontaneous miscarriage is almost nonexistent. The indication is usually recurrant loss or evidence of shortening of the cervix as evidenced on serial sonograms. Prolapse of the membranes beyond the internal os is certainly a sign of impending early labor/ contractions. ...Read more

Is a red colored cervix normal? Female age 22, negative for STDs (Had chlaymdia in past but was treated), normal pap, taking birth control pills.
Red cervix: Hi HaleyS, a red cervix can be normal. It is not normal if it is associated with swelling or pain. A normal pap, normal std tests, and normal pelvic exam by your doctor should be reassuring. If you have pain(abdominal or pelvic), fevers, or malodorous discharge, see your doctor immediately. Hope that's helpful. ...Read more
I have needle like pain in cervix with cramp and heavy flow on period. Like smear test discomfort. BG of PCOS and para 1. Age 37. New symptom. Thx.
You can't actually: You will not be able to tell if your cervix is dilating or not unless you have an examination by an MD. If you happen to know what your cervix feels like due to masturbation, you might be able to feel that your cervix is softer and the cervical os is wider (the little hole is bigger), but it takes med students quite a while to learn, and I wouldn't recommend you check yourself, anyway ...Read more

The important thing would be to make sure that you do not have any irregular vaginal bleeding, are up to date on your pap smears, and are not suffering from vaginal dryness or atrophy. Use lube if you need to and condoms if with a new partner. ...Read more

Normal variant: Depending on the number of children born via vaginal delivery a woman has, sometimes her cervix can be "bulky". Typically, if a woman has never had a vaginal delivery, her cervix will be small, as it's never stretched out. Bulky is a normal variant and doesn't mean that there's anything wrong with the cervix, per se. ...Read more
