How Should Your Cervix Feel In Early Pregnancy

Slightly blue: Because of increased blood flow to the uterus in response to the pregnancy, the cervix (which is the tip of the uterus) will tend to have a slightly blue tint as well as more prominent blood vessels with a tendency to bleed slightly on contact. The changes are not distinct enough to independently confirm the pregnancy. ...Read more
Friable?: I'm going to make a guess here: you mean "friable' not 'pliable.' Friable is a plain English word that means the cervix might bleed more easily than usual, such as during a vaginal exam, this is nearly universal in pregnancy. Pliable is like flexible, that is not used to describe a woman's cervix. ...Read more
NO, HIGH/CLOSED: In early pregnancy the cervix is closed and 'fairly high' in the vagina unless there is 'significant pelvic relaxation' from previous vaginal deliveries. If the cervix dilates in early pregnancy, then a miscarriage may result. This problem usually occurs ~14 weeks and is referred to as 'incompetent cervix'. Because the baby is well protected, sex is ok in pregnancy unless there is a complication. ...Read more

Myths: No. Please review your health class lessons. A fetus is not connected to its mother for about fourteen days after conception.

Low hard cervix in early pregnancy im 5 weeks with my 5 th is this normal I also have a tipped uterus?
Mild uterus prolapse: It is possible since this is the 5th pregnancy and the cervix is low and hard, that there is some uterine prolapse and the uterus is sitting lower in the pelvis than usual. A tipped back uterus often causes the cervix to be lower and easier to feel. Probably not a problem, but have your doc do an exam. ...Read more

Acid reflux, semi-hardened cervix, random mild stomach pains within last month or two, could it be signs of early pregnancy?
Hard to tell: It can be hard to guess whether a woman is pregnant or not. A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), 1 week after missing a period, or after 1 week after having a "weird" period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and thus lead to a repeat test. ...Read more
Cervix seems very sensitive during early pregnancy (4 wks). Brown spotting and bleeding after sex. Is a test of progesterone level needed?
No: The cervical blood vessels can be very near the surface. They are more engorged with blood and become more fragile due to the pregnancy and increased estrogen. The cervix always seems more "touchy" and cramps during pregnancy. All of this is normal. But you should be checked to make sure there is no other cause for your bleeding. ...Read more

Pelvic pressure: If your period is due in 12 days then that means you are right in the middle of the ovulation time or just after. It would be way too early for these symptoms to be related to being pregnant. Causes such as gas, constipation, bladder infections and vaginal infections are a few possible causes. ...Read more
