  • imagine your uterus is like a balloon, the opening to the balloon is the cervix, which opens into the birth canal (vagina). during pregnancy the cervix is closed until you go into labour. when you aren't pregnant, the cervix moves around a bit, it can be high and tight or low and a bit open, depending on what time of the month it is. check out http://www.beautifulcervix.com/cervix-photo-galleries/photos-of-cervix/ warning, pics are graphic

  • I had a slanted cervix and it took forever finding my cervix every doctors appointment. I did have a normal delivery and I was in labor for 6 hours and pushed for about 10 minutes.

  • The position of your cervix to the vagina will have no effect on ability to get pregnant or labor and birth. It is hard to find sometimes because of it's position to the speculum.
