I was told I have a posterior cervix Monday. I have dilated to 1 and it's still hard for them to get to. What is this? Does this mean I will have a harder time having him naturally?Answer Question

You don't need to get checked, it is optional. Sounds like it's undue discomfort, anyway! :-o
Eventually, the cervix will move anterior (forward) when it is time for labor.
Here is info, if you'd like to know more:
Before labor begins, the cervix drops into the vaginal canal at an angle that makes it point toward the back (posterior).
