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

Depends: Women who have had babies before often dilate before they go into labor. In first time moms early dilatation puts one at risk for early delivery, but one still may deliver at term.

If my cervix is open due to my miscarrage i had 2 weeks ago why am i having EWCM does this mean im fertile?
