Could a tight/closed cervix cause extremely painful periods and infertility? Would my dr notice this on examinging me? Concerned he missed something
It could: Technically its called a "stenotic cervical os". It can cause painful periods. It could possibly, but not usually, cause infertility.

After my associate gave birth, she said they tied her vaginal/cervics to make it smaller or tight, is that true? She wanted to look like a virgin. Thx

My best wishes for a clean bill of health! ...Read more

Cervical position: Cervical position essentially means nothing. This is not something that obgyns evaluate in a nonpregnant woman.

Although popular on the internet feeling your cervix is not a reliable indicator. ...Read more
