ME TOO LADIES!!!! There's a ton of info on it and what it means - high and soft, ovulating, low, closed, hard - not fertile...that's great and all, but if I can't even feel it or know what the heck I'm looking for all up in there (it ALL feels the same to me!!!) then all that info is of no use! They should have someone show us! ha! Hey doc...can you help me find my cervix please and guide me?

Found this for you hun

First, wash your hands very well. Itís vital that you donít introduce any kind of infection into your reproductive system. (If youíre dealing with a yeast infection or any other kind of vaginal infection, you shouldnít check your cervix until the infection is cleared up.)

Find a comfortable position that will allow you to easily reach your cervix. That may be sitting on the toilet, putting one leg up on the edge of the bathtub or squatting.

If you think of your vagina as a hallway, your cervix is the other door at the very end. While your vagina has a sort of spongy feel that gives way easily to pressure, the cervix is like a firm, round dimple. Some say it feels like the tip of your nose when youíre not fertile and like the firmness of your lips when you are fertile ó this is what youíre feeling for.

Reach your index or middle finger inside of your vagina, and slowly (donít scratch yourself!) slide your finger in as far as you can reach, a sort of in and upward motion. If youíre not close to ovulation, you should find your cervix easily. If you are ovulating, your cervix may be higher in your body and more difficult to reach.

When youíre just learning how to check your cervical position, you should check your cervical position every so many days, even when you donít think youíre ovulating. Itís much easier to find when youíre not ovulating, and youíll have a better idea of what youíre feeling.

As ovulation approaches, the cervix moves higher up, becoming softer and less firm and opening more. High, soft and open is a possible indication of approaching ovulation: you should make time for sex if you want to get pregnant. Low, firm and closed is not a fertile sign, and youíre probably not ovulating yet. Once you get used to checking your cervical position, fertile signs become very easy to recognize, but it does take practice and time to learn. Be patient with yourself.

Donít be afraid to touch your body! Some women feel like checking their cervical position violates some unwritten rule, as if there are parts of your body that belong to the domain of doctors only. Or they may be afraid of hurting themselves. (Just be gentle. If youíre worried, consider what goes on during sexual intercourse. Checking your cervix doesnít come close to sex. Youíre not going to hurt yourself.)

If youíre marking your cervical position on a fertility chart, it may ask you if your cervix is in a high, medium or low position or whether your cervix feels firm, medium or soft or whether your cervix feels open or closed.

Donít expect to understand what youíre feeling the first, second or even tenth time you try ó -this is a skill that comes from practice and patience. Once you learn what the signs are by experiencing the changes in your cervix throughout a few cycles, though, youíll be a pro.

If your cervix always feels slightly open, donít worry. Especially if youíve ever given birth (that can include a miscarriage), your cervix may never fully close. As ovulation approaches, youíll still be able to notice the height and softness changes of the cervix, though.

Signs of approaching ovulation include a high cervical position (you may not be able to reach!), a softer cervix and a more open cervix. Youíll also probably notice more fertile cervical mucus near your cervix (this is also a good time to check your cervical mucus).

Donít check your cervical position during or after sex. Your cervix actually moves around according to your level of sexual arousal, regardless of ovulation.

It helps if you check your cervical position at the same time every day.

Some women try to figure out if theyíre pregnant by checking their cervical position. There really is no way to know whether youíre pregnant by checking your cervical position.

I found a site called my beautiful cervix if you google it you'll find it. It's a 25 year old woman that posted pictures of her cervix throughout each day of her cycle from start to finish. I can't post the link yet since I'm still a newbie. The site is graphic, but totally amazing!

ps* great info mama duck!

OK, so if using my middle finger it is really hard to reach, but I can (barely) does that mean I might be fertile? It is kinda soft..not too soft...since Im new at this I dont think I can tell the difference between soft and hard lol.

Also if I dont seem to have a lot of CM does that mean Im prob NOT fertile?

I couldnt do the baby dance earlier this month and I did it two times yesterday so Im hoping I didnt miss my chance

OMG! I think I just felt my cervix. Oh the things you do when TTC! I just dropped my pants in my living room and said...what the hell...I'll give it a shot! I was a site to see..."searching" up there with one hand and the other touching the tip of my nose to feel a comparison like the article said! I think I'm low and hard right now (that sounds naughty).
