Cervix Self Exam

Ok, so i see all this stuff about self examinations to see if your cervix is closed...I have been trying and for the life of me I cant tell or feel anything. When I was prego with my son they said that my cervix is far back...could this be why I dont feel anything. Any suggestions?

  • What are you talking about? Never heard of this in my life, and I'm a nurse.

  • Are you talking about cervical position? during pregnancy your cervix is higher up and closed tightly. I think this might be what you're looking for.

  • See i was told that you can put your fingers in you and feel your cervix to determine if it is open or closed. My problem is when i do that I have NO IDEA what I am feeling up there. Maybe my fingers are too small or im doing something wrong.....I dont know.
    When I was prego with my son and the nurse did a pelvic exam she said that the position of my uterus or my cervix was positioned further back than normal. So I wanted to know could this be the reason that I am not feeling anything.

  • maby. what it will feel like is just a hard bump in the top of your a knot or a lumpish thing, and if you can feel the center of it it will have an indentation where the hole is, i hope this helps, also FYI it is easy est to feel when you are in the bath, idk why.
