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

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

Not a good idea!: Unless a woman has lots of experience examining cervixes, she should not be poking around trying to figure out if she is dilating. This is especially true if she is not going to deliver today or this week. If premature (too early to deliver), poking around can push infectious germs up into the cervix, break her bag of water, create more contractions, cause some bleeding, etc... ...Read more

No trap door: Your designer considered many contingencies in how to carry on the lineage. Jumping jacks and judo should be tolerable without difficulty. Should ask your ob, who might review your u/s just to be sure placenta also not low/previa, which might pose a theoretical concern. Happy baby. Sorry for the pain! ...Read more

Schedule a visit: During the second trimester of pregnancy this is a common complaint as the baby inside you continues to grow. That being said hopefully you're getting prenatal care. You ought to schedule a visit with your doctor to make sure that everything is okay. ...Read more
