Sharp pelvic pain w/nausea, sweat, & dizziness. Dr says tender cervix & enlrgd uterus. Went for ultrasound & OBG in a few days. What could this be?

A few ideas: Sharp pain with nausea etc., could be a sign of endometriosis or adenomyosis, especially with enlarged uterus and tender cervix. Could also be an infection like endometritis or STD. The approach for these are hormonal and antibiotics, respectively. Both are a little tricky to diagnose as well. Make sure you're not pregnant or dehydrated, first. Doctor may recommend a biopsy to diagnose. ...Read more

???: 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 are feeling. I think it worries women more than it enlightens. Go to your Dr for a proper exam ...Read more

Had a smear today, doc said I have a white spot on my cervix, what does this mean? And should my cervix feel slighty tender inside afterwards?

Yes: It's normal to feel tender inside after a pap smear exam. It's unclear what your doctor meant by white spot. Did they tell you that he needed to be removed or that they were concerned?

See below: Conception, as defined by the generation of a fertilized ovum, occurs within day or so of the sex. However, it takes about 2-3 weeks for the embryo to make enough HCG to produce a positive pregnancy test. Blood test may be done a day after a missed period. Home pregnancy tests should be done 4-5 days after the missed period. If the result is negative repeat the test in 4-5 days. Use first morning urine and follow instructions for the test carefully. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD.
Practice safe sex.

Sore boobs for the past two days. Cramping pain while having sex. Does your cervix lower when you're ovulating?

Sore boobs for the past two days. Cramping pain while having sex. Does your cervix lower when you're ovulating?

Engorgement: Your pelvis engorges and can feel more 'weighty' and 'lower' when you are ovulating and before your period.

Why does my girlfriend lower abdomen hurt after I fingered her? Did I poke her cervix? She is also sore in her vagina. I used two fingers this time.

Why does my girlfriend lower abdomen hurt after I fingered her? Did I poke her cervix? She is also sore in her vagina. I used two fingers this time.

Can't really tell...: Can't really tell what is hurting nor why something is hurting, without talking to the person and doing an exam (maybe or maybe not related to the fingers), could be time to leave her alone to see if the symptoms quickly go away (and see the doctor if the symptoms stay around or worsen). Just using 2 fingers should not be a problem... It depends more on what the fingers do and how they do it. ...Read more
