How do you know what your cervix is?

  • I'll be a little graphic, if you put your finger in it feels like a little indentation. Feel around everyday for it and soon you'll be able to tell when it moves closer to your finger or farther away.  Some times when it's farther you'll have to push your finger farther in.  i use my middle finger and its towards the front of you body, not the back.  It's easiest to find it in the shower, and lift one leg up.

  • Look for a picture on-line. That's how I found mine, when I could actually picture what it was I was feeling. Don't expect it to be very helpful the first month, though, because it can take a while to figure out the different positions. And be sure to check it at the same time every day, apparently that can make a difference.

  • I have a question for the original question....What is the purpose of doing this? Is it to aid in finding when you ovulate?

  • yes that was the reason in finding out what it feels like, I guess it changes when you ovulate.
