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. ...Read more

I was told by my gyn that my cervix is closed .... What do I have to do in order to be able to get pregnant ?

?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. ...Read more

Am trying to conceive for some months now and i just found out my cervix is closed. What are my chances of getting pregnant?

Chances are the same: If your menstrual periods do occur, your cervix is most probably not "closed" and your chances of getting pregnant remain dependent on several other factors like your ability to ovulate, the frequency of sexual intercourse with a fertile man during your fertile period, the patency of your tubes etc... ...Read more

Tubal ligation: should be close to 100% at preventing a pregnancy. Exceptions are not unheard of, but you should not worry as the percentage is very very very small that you will conceive again. Closed cervix does not mean that you can't get pregnant. If you still have your uterus, then you still have your menstrual cycle which means your cervix is not really closed. ...Read more

Wondering if I am pregnant if my cervix are closed?

Don't try to predict: if you are pregnant by checking your own cervix. If you have been sexually active and have missed your period then you can go ahead and take a home pregnancy test (HPT) now. If negative and still no period would repeat HPT in a week. Take care. ...Read more

No conclusions: Cervical position essentially means nothing. This is not something that obgyns evaluate in a nonpregnant woman. There is no reason to be making any sort of health decisions based on the way your cervix feels. The cervix stays basically closed until one goes into labor. If you feel a mass on your cervix have a doctor verify. If you feel you have uterine prolapse a doctors can check that too ...Read more

Cervical position: The cervical position is not something you need to be checking. It is important during the end of the third trimester and when you are in labor. Other than that it is not relevant. Even though you are only 22 since you have been pregnant 3 times it is not surprising that already have a mild degree of uterine prolapse. This is not an issue that will affect pregnancy but may later in life. ...Read more

Pregnancy: Pregnancy is not determined by the way your cervix feels. The described cervical changes during early pregnancy are often hard to base your pregnancy prediction upon. I would stop doing it and wait until you have a missed period. It's a much better prediction of a possible pregnancy. A pregnancy test if in doubt would still be way more reliable pregnancy predictor. ...Read more
