I just turned 26 and don't know what some terms like cervix means. I was just never taught and never asked anyone.  How do you all know what everything is?


I didn't learn any of this in school. In middle school we learned about getting our "special friend" and how to use a pad.  High school biology taught us the internal organs of frogs...


While I was pregnant, my ob did say at the end how dilated my cervix was.  I know what dilation means and I know where the babies head comes out, so I just figured.

I took human anatomy in high school and college that's why I know, but A LOT of women don't. Know when you through my cervix in the mix with TTC I am clueless when it comes to checking my own and knowing it's position and status personally I feel like that's a bit much.
