These seemed like pretty good directions, better than I could x-plain

On the bottom it does say  "Some women try to figure out if they’re pregnant by checking their cervical position. There really is no way to know whether you’re pregnant by checking your cervical position." so maybe don't use it as a concrete answer to pregnancy.

If you havent been checking the entire cycle its pointless to start now. You need to start on cd1 and check everyday at the same time (within the same hour time frame).

This..also it usually takes a few months to get into a rhythm of charting cp, you need a few charts for comparing it to.


Quoting NCJen84:

Checking your cervix is really only useful in determining ovulation.  It's no good as a pregnancy sign.  Seriously.  Your cervix changes all the time throughout the day.  Plus, cervical changes in pregnancy don't always occur right away.  My cervix didn't go high and back until 8 weeks.  There was no difference when I was only 4 weeks.

GRAPHIC WARNING!!! PIC

I usually did it sitting on the toilet or squating in the shower LOL.........I use my middle finger every time to compare.

Your cervix is at the very end of your vagina, sometimes can be slanted posterior or anterior (usually posterior which means facing your back).

You cervix feels like a round cone with a tiny indent in the center when it is firm & cery closed.............when you are close to ovulation it will feel more like a soft donut with a finger tip size hole in the middle.
