The Position of Your Cervix in Early Pregnancy
A woman’s cervical position changes through out her cycle. The various positions and cervical mucus qualities will denote how fertile the woman is.
Women, who keep track of the position of their cervix, sometimes wonder if there is a direct correlation between pregnancy and cervix position.
It would be nice if the cervix responded the same way in every woman, when pregnancy is achieved, but unfortunately this is not the case.
After you ovulate, your cervix will change from being high in your vagina and soft feeling to being located lower and firmer feeling. The firmness has been compared to how the tip of your nose feels.
The cervix feel and position WILL change during pregnancy, but the timing of when the change will occur will vary from woman to woman.
Pregnancy will cause the cervix to raise a bit and become softer. For some women, this will happen right before their period is due. For other women, this change will happen quite a while after the pregnancy has already been confirmed.
Due to these difference, cervical position and feel is not a reliable indication of pregnancy.
There are other signs, in addition to cervix position, that might be indications of pregnancy.
Some common signs of pregnancy include:
- Backaches not related to physical exertion
- Sore, swollen or tender breasts
- The to visit the bathroom more often – to urinate or vomit.
- A hyper sense of smell with odd aversions to certain smells
- Feeling tired and run down all the time
- Frequent headaches
Ultimately, the confirmation of pregnancy has to be made via a pregnancy tests, either taken at home or at your doctor’s office.
