Hello. On my period, day # 2, and my cervix is very low and close to the opening of my vagina, swollen and wide open. Is this cause for concern?

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

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
