Cervix high before period?

Cervix high before period? Topic: Q and a research sign up
June 16, 2019 / By Gabriel
Question: My cervix is high (like I could barely touch it yesterday, today - I can not touch it) and I am wondering if this could mean I am pg? 1st day of last period was 11/15 (it's 12/9, not due for a few days). We had sex once at CD12 - CM was watery and there was a lot of it. I do not think I have any other signs of pregnancy - but I know it is still very early. The only thing that I cant make sense of is my cervical position. Through the research that I've done, it seems that before a women's period, her cervix should be low....but mine is high. Is this a sign of pregnancy?

http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Where_should_t... i've done alot of research too and looked at alot of charts both pregnant and non-pregnant charts and it looks like it's nearly impossible to know if you are pregnant by cervix position, cervical dishcharge and other "signs" of pregnancy that are usually signs of a period coming. if you check your cervix though daily and have been for a few cycles and know what it normally is before your period, then maybe you can use that as a sign of pregnancy but even then something can cause it to change. the cervix does change throughout the day and it can be higher or lower depending on bowel movements. some woman's cervix won't raise and become soft for days or weeks after a missed period and some might happen right away. mine has stayed high since ovulation and has been hard like the tip of my nose but today it has softened up and gotten squishy...who knows if it's a sign of my period coming or pregnancy...i've been charting for 7 months and it's still hard to know what's normal and not! Edit: I just got my period this morning! So there really is no way at all to know if you are pregnant by feeling for your cervix. mine stayed high this entire time and I wasn't pregnant.

During ovulation the cervix is SHOW (soft, high,open and wet). Around the time of menstration the cervix is low and hard. I've heard OB/GYNs making this analogy when referring to a pregnant vs. non-pregnant cervix: A non-pregnant cervix feels like a hard, unripe piece of fruit, while a pregnant cervix is more like an almost over-ripe plum. It becomes very tender and engorged with blood, especially early on in pregnancy.In the early stages of pregnancy you may notice that your cervix will rise a bit and become softer, but the timing of this happening will vary from woman to woman. You may see the change in your cervix shortly before your period is due or you may not feel this for several weeks.As the pregnancy progresses you will probably have an increase in vaginal discharge, but the cervical mucous is fairly minimal during pregnancy. Some women may notice a change in their cervix in very early pregnancy but cervical position is not a good sign of pregnancy. That is because the cervix changes not only from woman to woman but from day to day and could even be different in the same woman at different times of the day. I would recommend to check your cervix right after your period ends and check it every day, at the same time, in the same postion. That way you know how your cervix is suppose to feel at what point during your cycle and if it doesn't feel that it's suppose to you could use that to help you determine pregnancy. For a woman that doesn't check her cervix regularly I would say it's next to impossible to determine if she's pregnant or not by checking it.

Cervical position is not an accurate indicator of pregnancy. You can try an early pregancy test, but it may be too early to test.

High 90's require a lot of work and a good understanding of the subject. The things I did were: tackle the hardest subjects first. That way your mind is fresh and can concentrate. Take lots of breaks. Don't wait til the last minute to study. Review the work each night. Get help on stuff you don't understand right away. Do study groups. even if you know all the answers and they dont, it helps you to recall it at exam time by discussing it. it goes into your long term memory that way keep good jot notes. i used to divide my paper up. i would right on the right half, what the teacher was saying. put notes in the left side, and definitions. etc. used a highligter. copied down main ideas etc. i did my homework every night and never let anything slide. always do MORE than what's expected of you. participate in class, alot. contribute to the discussion, teachers love to see an apt pupil. if you find it hard to study. break the assignement, or stuff your studying down into small manageable parts, say 15 mins at a time. lots of breaks. good luck i hope you get those marks.1
