If my cervix is high soft and open after ovulation, could I be pregnant?

If my cervix is high soft and open after ovulation, could I be pregnant?

Cervix and ovulation: That's normal. The cervix wants to admit sperm at ovulation to allow fertilization of your egg. This doesn't indicate pregnancy.

Pregnancy (Definition)

When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more

My cervix drops and becomes firm "pointed" after ovulation. 8-12 DPO and cervix remains high/soft with ewcd not dry like normal before af. Pregnant?

You tell us: If you think you might be pregnant check then check a home pregnancy test. They are cheap, reliable and available at any pharmacy. Cervical position is not something you need to spend time and energy on. It's not relevant.

How long after ovulation when becoming pregnant do cervix become firm and mucus plug begins to form?

How long after ovulation when becoming pregnant do cervix become firm and mucus plug begins to form?

1-2 days: The cervical mucus becomes thin and watery to allow sperm entry into the uterus and tubes. The change is largely related to the estrogen hormone increase leading to ovulation. After ovulation, the ovary produces Progesterone (p4), which prepares the endometrium for implantation. P4 also changes mucus to thick dense mucus blocking sperm. P4 in bcp also helps with contraception.

On pill 12 days before having sex. Possible ovulation? Took plan b 31 hours after sex. 3 days after sex cervix high and soft. Possible pregnant?

On pill 12 days before having sex. Possible ovulation? Took plan b 31 hours after sex. 3 days after sex cervix high and soft. Possible pregnant?

Probably not: Plan b is 89% effective at preventing pregnancy and you are also on birth-control pills. So its unlikely that you are pregnant. Feeling your cervix isn't a reliable way to know if you are pregnant. Best wishes!

After ovulation and the usual intercourse with MH. I've noticed that I can only feel one side of my cervix its high n soft. Should I be concern?

After ovulation and the usual intercourse with MH. I've noticed that I can only feel one side of my cervix its high n soft. Should I be concern?

Please don't: I don't know where it got started, but this year the popular vogue seems to be for women to check how 'high' their cervices are. This is the worst way I can think of trying to track ovulation: it's difficult to check and means nothing. Counting days, bbt, opk, even checking cervical mucus makes more sense. Good luck.

Cervix stayed high and hard after ovulation and hasn't dropped. What do I do?

Cervix stayed high and hard after ovulation and hasn't dropped. What do I do?

Do not worry: And please do not check your cervix, there is absolutely nothing of value you can tell by "checking" the cervix of a non-pregnant woman. It does not tell you anything about your ovulation, and may cause bleeding. Best wishes.

Why did my cervix go from low and firm to high and soft after ovulation?

Why did my cervix go from low and firm to high and soft after ovulation?

Nothing: Examining your cervix does not reliably tell you anything about ovulation, that's just popular gossip. It can cause bleeding, I wouldn't do it.

What does it meen when my cervix is high hard and open a few days after ovulation?

What does it meen when my cervix is high hard and open a few days after ovulation?

Cervix ; Anatomy: Nothing. Which begs the question as to what represents "open' to you. A cervix is very much not open in general.

How long after ovulation is the cervix high and soft? I think I ovulated 3-4 days ago, I am also still having light cramping near ovaries

How long after ovulation is the cervix high and soft? I think I ovulated 3-4 days ago, I am also still having light cramping near ovaries

No need to check: Cervical position and consistency is only relevant when you are pregnant especially in the late 3rd trimester. Hormonal changes during the menstrual cycle cause very subtle changes in the cervix that are not important to monitor. No judgments or clinical decision making can be accurately made based on cervical position or consistency in a non-pregnant patient.

Why is my cervix still very high and soft after ovulation ended. My period isn't due for another 5 days am I pregnant? Is this normal.

Why is my cervix still very high and soft after ovulation ended. My period isn't due for another 5 days am I pregnant? Is this normal.

Do hpt if you miss: Your period. Conception, as defined by the generation of a fertilized ovum, occurs within day or so of the sex. However, it takes about two weeks for the embryo to make enough HCG to produce a positive pregnancy test. Blood test may be done a day after a missed period. Home pregnancy tests should be done 4-5 days after the missed period. Use first morning urine and follow instructions for the test carefully.

I've had high and soft cervix during my period last may 6, and 7, until now it is still high and soft, is this possible? Or could I be pregnant?

I've had high and soft cervix during my period last may 6, and 7, until now it is still high and soft, is this possible? Or could I be pregnant?

Pregnancy Test: Position of cervix in vagina does not tell us anything in regards to whether a woman is pregnant. Best to do home pregnancy test on first morning urine no sooner than 2 weeks after FIRST unprotected sex. If neg, repeat in 7-10 days. If both neg, unlikely you are pregnant. Hope this was helpful. Best of luck. Dr R

I had sex 3 days after ovulation. Could chances of me pregnant be high?

I had sex 3 days after ovulation. Could chances of me pregnant be high?

No, it could not.: If an egg not fertilized in 24 hours after ovulation, it will not survive. So, sex after 3 days most probably eliminates the risk of getting pregnant since there will not be an available egg around.

Do LH levels stay high if pregnant after ovulation?

Do LH levels stay high if pregnant after ovulation?

No: They are only briefly high then your estrogen and Progesterone levels stay elevated. That causes your lh and fsh levels to stay very low.

What is the sign of having high BBT after ovulation? When to detect early pregnancy using bbt?

What is the sign of having high BBT after ovulation? When to detect early pregnancy using bbt?

Chart: In order to determine, when she ovulates and whether she might be pregnant, a woman needs to take her temperature every day from the day her period starts, and, most importantly, record the temperature. The temperature will fluctuate a little bit every day, but when she ovulates the temperature will be visibly higher and stay high, again with fluctations, beyond 28 days, when the woman is pregnant

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?

Pap smear: Cervical position and consistency rarely matters except when you are in labor. There is no need to check it otherwise as it will not reliably indicate much of anything useful. Make sure you Pap smear is up to date. If still concerned have an obgyn take a look.

My cervix feels high and very soft. I want to know if I am dialated or not. What does a super high and very soft cervix mean in pregnancy. I'm 37w6d?

My cervix feels high and very soft. I want to know if I am dialated or not. What does a super high and very soft cervix mean in pregnancy. I'm 37w6d?

Maybe: Generally, as the cervix readies for labor, it becomes softer, it "moves down" a bit, and then it starts to dilate. Usually, this is caused by contractions - if you're not having contractions, or any bleeding, or any loss of fluid, then you probably aren't dilating just yet. But your doctor can check at your next visit! If you are having any of those signs, I would go to your doctor sooner.
