Checking your own cervix???? adult content

Are you gals that stretchy?? Mine is WAY up there!
I see this once in awhile on here how they check their own cervix.
Are you sure its your cervix you're feeling?
My midwife had to go in up past her wrist to check me during labor.

  • I'm good on that. There is no reason I'd want or need to, and even if I did, I wouldn't know what I was looking for. That's what doctors are paid for so I'll leave that up to them. That being said, I don't think I could get my finger up that far.

  • I don't check my own cervix. Don't want to run the risk of infections.

  • I will never check mine because I wouldnt know what to look or feel for. I'll keep that to the professionals.

  • I think the idea of checking your own cervix is crazy! I've never heard of that before!

  • I have, and mind changes positions, sometimes it's high sometimes it's low, you have to be very careful though, I would NOT do it while pregnant because you don't want to risk getting an infection or doing damage since you don't know what you're doing, but if you do insist on doing it, at least please make sure your hands are very clean. The only time I did it was when I was ttc, because it can be an indicator for tracking ovulation, but it's really not very accurate, so really not worth the risk anyway.

  • I probably wouldn't pregnant but I can reach mine. It's low and tilted funky. (thank you, dr when I was 15 telling me I couldn't have kids. I cried for a week and considered suicide!)

  • Are you real tall? Tall women tend to have longer vaginal openings.

    Yes, i can reach mine & know exactly what it feels like. I check it once a month to make sure my mirena strings are still there.
