Know What You’re Looking For

Or, feeling for, in this case. You are going to be feeling the inside of your cervix to see what it feels like, and to help determine which stage of your cycle you are on. When you are not ovulating, your cervix will feel firm, hard, closed, and low.

During this time, your cervix will feel like your nose does in texture. However, as you approach ovulation, your cervix will become softer, wetter, higher, and open. During this time, it will feel like your lips in texture. Remember that this is what you are looking for.

Start Off Right

It is very important to make sure that when checking your cervical position, that you start off on the right foot. This means making sure that your hands are clean so that you do not accidentally give yourself some sort of infection. This also means making sure that your nails are trimmed short. If you accidentally scratch your cervix, it can be very painful and can also lead to infection or problems.

The easiest ways to check your cervix are from a squatting position, or on the toilet. You can also stand with one leg lifted up, propped on something like a stool or the bathtub. Whatever is the most comfortable for you will work just fine.

Closed, hard cervix

Using one or two fingers, gently feel the inside of your cervix to see what position it is in and what it feels like. If you feel like your cervix is closed, hard, and low, this means you are not at a fertile time and should not expect to get pregnant.

Open, soft cervix

However, if you are noticing that your cervix is higher, wet, soft and open, that means you are in your fertile time and should try to get pregnant right away! Sometimes when you are ovulating, your cervix will be so soft that it will blend in and you won’t even be able to feel it at all. This means that you are really in your fertile time, so you should have sex right away. While it might be a bit uncomfortable at first, checking your cervix will be a great way for you to know when you are ovulating once you get used to doing it.
