Position of Your Cervix in Early Pregnancy

The position and texture of the cervix can be an alternative way for a woman to tell whether or not she is ovulating or whether she is pregnant.

The cervix during ovulation

For many women, the position of the cervix is an important sign of what is going on in a woman’s cycle. Many women use the position of their cervix to help give them clues about what portion of their cycle they are experiencing. As a woman approaches ovulation, her cervix will become soft. It is often positioned higher in a woman’s body during this time, and may feel wet and open. After a woman ovulates, her cervix closes, lowers in the body, and feels firm and dry. The position and texture of the cervix can be an alternative way for a woman to tell whether or not she is ovulating. Claim Your 20 Free Pregnancy Tests – Click Here

The cervix during pregnancy

Women who use the position of the cervix to determine whether or not they are ovulating may wonder if they can also use the position or texture of the cervix to tell if they are pregnant before a pregnancy test can tell them. This is sometimes true, but not always. The cervix does change during the early days of pregnancy, but not at the same time for every woman. Some women might see the change in their cervix right away, and other women might not see the change for a very long time. When pregnancy occurs, the cervix rises up and becomes softer. However, there is no way to tell when this will happen in any particular case. Sometimes, it happens within days of conception, but other times, it might not happen well into the first month of pregnancy. It is not a reliable indicator of pregnancy, so women should be advised not to use this as their only means of determining whether or not they are pregnant.

Don’t count on it

Women should use caution when using the position and texture of their cervix to determine whether or not they are pregnant. The position of the cervix alone is not a reliable way to tell if a woman is pregnant. If a woman thinks that she might be pregnant, she should wait until she is able to take a home pregnancy test. If she is unable to wait that long, a woman can also visit her doctor’s office to have a blood pregnancy test done. Blood pregnancy tests are often able to detect pregnancy earlier than home pregnancy tests. As you can see, while the position of the cervix does change during pregnancy, it is not a reliable indicator of a pregnancy.

My period was suppose to come on the 18th of July 2014 but it didn’t so I took a test on the 21 of July 2014 it said I’m pregnant.

    I was due for my period on Jan 19th. It didn’t come. I tested positive that night and the next morning. I bled for 1 day then tested again and it was negative then a couple days later tested negative. I got 2 positives and 2 negatives. I feel nauseated, headache, bloated. Is it possible to still be pregnant?

    I was measured at 1.8-2.8 cm at 16 weeks. I went on bed rest and am taking progesterone suppositories. I am now 19 weeks. I had a previous miscarriage at 6 weeks. I didn’t have bleeding and the amniotic sac came out in tact. I developed a strong fear of an incompetent cervix. After that short measurement my anxiety increaed exponentially. For the last 3 weeks, I can’t help but feel of my cervix when inserting the suppository. Up until 4 days ago, my cervix was about 2 inches into my vagina. I could easily reach it. Then it went up really high for 3 days where I could barely reach it. I had measurements taken during that time and it was 4.5-5 cm long. I know it is not good to constantly touch the cervix, but I can’t help it when I am inserting the suppositories. Today when I put it in, my cervix was back where I has been. I am just scared because I was told that it is a good sign when it really high. So now that it has dropped down, I am frightened. Please help me.

    My last period was January 11th. My boyfriend and I had sex the 25th, 26th, 27th & the 28th of that month. My period is now 11 days late. I’ve had no real signs of pregnancy other than the missed period, I’m a bit queasy and just starting today my nipples have become sensitive. My boyfriend and I had sex two days ago and I bled a little but it wasn’t my period, it just stopped afterwards.

    I had the mirena inserted in me in may, my boyfriend and I had unprotected sex about 3 weeks ago and lately I’ve been feeling unenergized and my lower stomach feels hard. I took a pregnancy test Thursday night and it came out negative, is there any chance I can be pregnant?
