What does it mean when your cervix is thick this was found in a vaginal ultrasound and now i had a pap done?

What does it mean when your cervix is thick this was found in a vaginal ultrasound and now i had a pap done?

Thick Cervix-not bad: It's hard to say exactly what the Radiologist was trying to say about calling the cervix "thick". Usually we refer to the cervix in a similar fashion in labor for someone who will not likely deliver soon.

If your pelvic exam and pap are normal, I wouldn't think a "thick" cervix would be a sign of something bad. ...Read more

I had pain last night. Doctor asked me to do Ultrasound. The report says "Bulky Cervix Noted". What is that mean. Do I have to worry.

I had pain last night.  Doctor asked me to do Ultrasound.  The report says "Bulky Cervix Noted".  What is that mean.  Do I have to worry.

Ultrasound: I am a proponent of following up with the doctor who ordered your study to get an interpretation. My reasoning is one, they know why it was ordered, they know your clinical story and two they both have access to the radiologist who read it to discuss it and that little thing at the bottom of the report which says clinical impression. ...Read more

Dr did catscan of pelvis for enlarged lymph nodes night sweats. Ct found thick cervix. What does this mean? Thanks

Unsure: Ct is not the best way to image the female pelvis. This could be normal for you or there may be something abnormal. I would recommend a pelvic ultrasound and physical exam to make sure everything is okay. ...Read more

35 weeks pregnant,belly has dropprd, baby is down in my pelvis,getting mild pressure on cervix,had really thick mucus,loose stools what can this mean?

Head low: I see that you already have 2 children. The more pregnancies you have, the lower the baby sits in the pelvis. That is why you have more pressure. I'm not sure about the loose stools, but taking some OTC Imodium (loperamide) would be ok. Stay well hydrated! ...Read more

What's bulky cervix?

Normal variant: Depending on the number of children born via vaginal delivery a woman has, sometimes her cervix can be
"bulky". Typically if a woman has never had a vaginal delivery, her cervix will be small, as it's never stretched out. Bulky is a normal variant and doesn't mean that there's anything wrong with the cervix, per se. ...Read more

What does a high soft open cervix mean?

What does a high soft open cervix mean?

Labor indicator: 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. ...Read more

What does it mean to have a slightly curved cervix?

Probably nothing: 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. ...Read more

What does it mean if cervix is low, hard, slightly closed and wet

Not much: Cervical position and consistency is subjective, variable and not particularly relevant. It varies by age, number of pregnancies and timing in the menstrual cycle.

What does a soft cervix mean?

It depends: 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.

What does having a short cervix mean?

How short?: 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. ...Read more
