Serial HCG levels: The best follow-up for your symptoms is serial blood HCG levels and ultrasound. Its possible you had a miscarriage and several blood HCG levels will clarify this. If the HCG level continues to rise normally, you are still pregnant. If it is dropping fast, you probably had a miscarriage. There are some grey areas, so its best to have an Ob/Gyn follow you. Best wishes! ...Read more

What does it mean when you're 10dpo with a cervix that's high, soft, and closed?

Days Past Ovulation: Having a cervix that is high, soft, and closed is normal for someone who is 10 days past ovulation. We only want cervixes to be low, effaced, and dilated during labor. If you are trying to get pregnant, make sure that the Folic Acid you are taking is l-methylfolate. Most people cannot use regular Folic Acid anymore, and that is what helps prevent neural tube defects. Look up neevodha prenatals. ...Read more

When a baby passes through the os and delivered vaginally, the cervical os is permanently changed, and in the shape of slit (bottom picture). If you are pregnant and have never delivered a baby vaginally, you should be checked by your doctor; otherwise, don't worry. ...Read more
