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 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. Did you have any cryosurgery or any surgery done on your cervix since your last pregnancy? Are you getting your menstrual cycles? If you are bleeding, I doubt your cervix is closed. Maybe you need to clarify the issue with your doctor. Good Luck.

? closed: Not sure what was meant by "closed." check with gyn on exact meaning. To get pregnant, have sex-unprotected with your loved one, mid cycle when you are ovulating (always 2 weeks before your period) and that is the most likely time to get pregnant. The cervix does not have to be "visibly open" to get pregnant. Good luck.

The: The location of every woman's cervix is different, and is closed if not on her period, actually it is not completely closed but it would seem closed if you are examing yourself. The symptoms you described could be pre-menstrual or could be due to early pregnancy. If your period has not come by now take a home pregnancy test. Good luck.

See your OB/GYN: First, it would be highly unlikely for your cervix to be "open" without being pregnant. Your gynecologist should be able to assess your cervix by physical examination and direct visualization. If your doctor thinks it is necessary, an ultrasound examination can also assess your uterus, cervix and ovaries.

How easy can u get pregnant if your cervix is open?

Normal: The normal cervix is always "open". If the cervix is not open then conception cannot happen. The menstrual flow would be retained in the uterus, which would soon become a big problem.

A low cervix. Would I have a chance to get pregnant?

Yes: Cervical prolapse and vaginal relaxation is common in women in their 40's and older especially after having some children, however that should not effect your ability to conceive. It is much harder and more risky to conceive over 40.

If your cervix is bend is it harder to get pregnant?

No: Almost every cervix has some degree of bending or flexion - that is normal and does not affect the ability to conceive.

Can you still get pregnant if you're cervix is torn?

Yes: Injuries or lacerations to the cervix are a bigger risk factor for miscarriage than infertility. See your doctor.

At 38weeks 6 days pregnant would cervix be open now if it was closed at 37weeks pregnant?

Could be: One can not predict when the cervix will open in any individual pregnancy. Your doctor will need to check your cervix during the physical exam to determine the current status.

Time for consult: If you have been having unprotected sex with your partner for more than a year & not conceived, a workup at a fertility center may be the best way to find answers. Both you & your partner will need to be evaluated. Your regular OB can sometimes start the process but the center can study you both & provide information on assisted pregnancy if needed.

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.

If my cervix is still closed could I still be pregnant?

Should be closed: If a woman is pregnant and has an open cervix, then the incompetent cervix becomes a risk for loss of pregnancy. At the end of pregnancy the cervix has to dilate to give the baby an opening for birth. If you're pregnant and suspect a problem please contact your ob.

Is being pregnant the only reason that your cervix would be closed?

Cervix changes: Lets restate your question. Your cervix is normally closed. Reasons for it to open involve the passage of material through it. For example, your cervix opens to allow the passage of menstrual blood. It opens in labor to allow passage of the fetus. It can spontaneously open to allow passage of a pregnancy as in a miscarriage. So, normally it is closed. It opens so that the uterus empties.
