My cervix low and open right before period. Is this normal?

In a way: There is some variation in the opening of the cervix throughout your monthly cycle. It doesn't dilate in the sense that you dilate at the time of delivery to 10 centimeters or more, but there is a cyclic variation, (very mild), as you prepare to bleed ...Read more

Unlikely: If you have been taking your BCP daily it is unlikely you are pregnant. The cervix is usually closed with pregnancy and cervixes can be in every position. If you fail to have your period, run a pregnancy test 1-2 weeks after your missed cycle. All the best. ...Read more

What does it mean when you have a low hard cervix but your period is not due until next month but i'm not sure if it's open or close?

What does it mean when you have a low hard cervix but your period is not due until next month but i'm not sure if it's open or close?

Means nothing: 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. ...Read more

My cervix is low and open, and I am also late on my period. What does it mean?

Pregnancy or.....: Pregnancy may be the most common reason. Other reasons include hormone imbalances (polycystic ovary syndrome, thyroid disease, pituitary problems, eating disorders). Sometimes caused by stress, but don't assume that's it. The position of your cervix doesn't indicate anything in particular. See your doctor. ...Read more

Could be: Everyone's cervix is going to feel and look slightly different. The cervix will vary from person to person just like your ears, nose and other body parts. This is not something you need to check, examine or be concerned with. ...Read more

Do a test: The best way to determine pregnancy in the early stages is to perform a pregnancy test (either urine or blood). Do not go by cervical appearance or position to ascertain pregnancy. ...Read more

Take the test: If you want to know if you are pregnant, take a test. In today's world you do not need to wonder if you are pregnant or not based on symptoms. Pregnancy tests are available at any pharmacy and in minutes you will have your answer. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. ...Read more
