  • It never closes completely; you form a mucus plug that "seals" it up, but discharge and other fluids can still escape. As far as using it as a way to distinguish whether you're pregnan or not; I wouldn't count on it. It will turn purple once you're a few weeks along (not sure how many), but I'm guessing you don't have a speculum at home to check, and by then, a test would show positive anyway. Good luck!

  • As far as I know it is closed the entire pregnancy until the end when you start to dilate. If it starts dilating too soon then you usually go on bed rest or get sewn up.
