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

"open" cervix: You would be better off to take with a grain of salt a lot of the medical "information" that you read online, especially when it is unvetted and/or from a source that is not curated by a knowledgeable medical organisation. The cervix can change throughout pregnancy, and what you are feeling may be completely normal. Discuss your concerns with your obstetrician. ...Read more

Hi I am 8.5 weeks pregnant and checked cervix in bath and it feels low soft and it feels quite open is this normal? It is second pregnancy
???: I don't know where this "checking cervix " fad has come from but it has absolutely no usefulness. It's very difficult to check your own cervix. Visualizing it would be better than blindly poking around. Most women do not know what it is they are feeling when they try. They often misinterpret what they think they are feeling. I think it worries women more than it enlightens. ...Read more

This can happen: A feeling like a mass or lump in your vagina, maybe as if something is going to fall or come out especially when having a bowel movement, suggests uterine prolapse, where the uterus moves down when other pelvic structures are weakened by a delivery. It can cause incontinence or bladder pain. You would not feel an "open cervix," but you should have this checked out by an OB or primary care doc. ...Read more

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

No specific month: Except for the 9th month of pregnancy, there is no predictable month that the cervix starts to open. However, if the cervix is dilated more than 2 cms, especially if it's also thinning out and the fetus's head can be easily felt on internal exam, it suggests that labor is imminent. If you are less than 37 weeks along, then your OB should take appropriate actions to forestall premature labor. ...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
