I found out yesterday that I have an aggravated/enlarged cervix. What can I do or what needs to be done? The symptoms and pain don't go away.

I found out yesterday that I have an aggravated/enlarged cervix. What can I do or what needs to be done? The symptoms and pain don't go away.

Seek Clarification: The terms enlarged and aggravated are not clear or medically sound. If aggravated means that you have cervicitis then that is treated with antibiotics and testing to determine the infectious cause. I am not sure why you would be told your cervix is enlarged.

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. ...Read more
