Not related: The pap smear and cervical biopsy would not be related to the fibroid. A pap smear is done to detect precancerous cells on the cervix and prevent cervical cancer. A cervical biopsy is done because the pap smear was abnormal or because the doctor saw an abnormality there during the exam. Fibroids are very common benign uterine tumors. ...Read more

What does your cervix look like in early pregnancy?

What does your cervix look like in early pregnancy?

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

What does your cervix feel like when you are pregnant. Mine is mushy soft high and wet?

It takes a long: Time to be able to do a pelvic exam. Your better off leaving that alone. Soft and mushy is not really what we look for. We look for dilation, thinning and efface ent, texture or softening is part of it, i'll give you that, but i wouldn't be trying to self examine or diagnose. You'll drive yourself crazy and may pull a muscle. Gd luc. ...Read more

The opening of my cervix feels like the top part has a flap of skin covering it, what could that be? Could this be why we aren't getting pregnant?

The opening of my cervix feels like the top part has a flap of skin covering it, what could that be? Could this be why we aren't getting pregnant?

Polyp? Maybe (not)..: Rather than speculate, go see your family doc or gynecologist for examination & diagnosis. If you've attempted to get pregnant for over 12 months w/o success, then we'll diagnose you as infertile & send you to reproductive endocrinologist, in which case, your partner also needs sperm count. In meantime, if you're trying to conceive, take prenatal Folic Acid to reduce risk for neural tube defects. ...Read more

Inflammation: This is something you want checked since vaginal or cervical infections can cause pain with intercourse. Pelvic engorgement can also cause vaginal discomfort and uterine prolapse can cause more cervix trauma with sex. Have an exam & explore different sexual positions once your OB clears you. ...Read more

You feel your cervix: I am not sure you can do this. I am unclear as to what you experienced; however, if you have had unprotected sexual intercourse, I suggest a blood pregnancy ( HCG) test and a GYN pelvic exam. ...Read more
