What does a curved cervix mean?

Normal

Cervix
A curved cervix probably indicates your cervix has a bend in it, either pointing to the front or the back. All of that is normal, and should not be causing any health problems.

What does it mean to have a slightly curved cervix?

Probably nothing

Cervix
The uterus is composed of muscle and collagen, both are somewhat flexible. The uterus is attached inside you, but is still a bit mobile, while the cervix is somewhat fixed in place by it's attachment to the vagina. When the uterus leans forward or back (or side), then the cervix will be curved a bit. Essentially, whatever the position of the uterus and cervix inside you, it is normal for you.

what does a soft cervix mean?

It depends

Cervix
If you are pregnant, cervical softening occurs as you progress through pregnancy, especially as you near delivery. If it occurs too early, your OB will watch you closely. If not pregnant, it's difficult to determine if there's any clinical significance without more information.

can they fix a curved cervix?

Not needed

Uterine
The cervix is part of the uterus. Most women have some natural and normal curvature to the uterus, of varying degrees - and there is no indication for, or need for, any treatment for that curvature.

What does having a short cervix mean?

How short?

Cervix
Short cervix only matters when it comes to pregnancy. If cervix is < than 2.5 cm long, there is increased risk of prematurity. Your OB can check for funneling of membranes into cervix early on, and after 24wks, do a test called Fetal Fibronectin. If this is positive AND you have short cervix, your risk of prematurity is much higher, and your doctor may want to implement steps to reduce risk.

What does a high soft open cervix mean?

Labor indicator

Vulva
You didn't mention if you're pregnant or not. A high soft open cervix is how a cervix is felt prior to labor. The changes give clues to whether or not you will be able to have a baby vaginally. The cervix starts in the back of the vagina, is hard and closed. For labor to start, it moves forward, gets softer and opens. The more the changes, the better the chances for labor & vaginal birth.
