    My Cervix has been high, hard and closed since a day or so after ovulation!
    At 8 dpo I started experiancing a bit of bleeding but this was only when I checked my CP- It did not psychically go on to my underwear and was not there when I wiped TMI I know.
    It lasted for around 2 and a half days and has not been seen since (thank god) First the bleeding was red, then it turned to a pink-ish tinge and then slightly brown before dissapearing all together.
    My CP is still high, hard and closed and I don't know what this mean- I'm actually quite worried. My periods are ALWAYS on time (apart from when BF and I first started TTC) and I can pin point my CP to a tea (usually). Though I have only been checking my CP for 2 cycles, I am one of these people who are VERY familiar with their bodies, so regardless of if I knew what I was actually looking for, and knowing the meaning behind any of the cervical positions, I am still 100% sure that I have never felt it like this before.
    Anyone got any insight for me, please?
    Thank you in advance.

    My personally experience is the cervix can be high & hard right until the day you bleed – You can’t use this as a reliable source for pregnancy.

    8dpo & spotting could indicate an implantation bleed.

    Although most think we are familiar to our bodies one thing can mean 5 things and is more a note than a reliable way of detecting pregnancy as mentioned above. Problem with this in mind is you can an many of us do start paying attention to things about our body that we did not before TTC so it is really hard to tell.

    You only true reliable source is a test.

    What day are you on in your cycle – How many days is your cycle?

    Hello

    Well after Ovulation, typically your CP changes from High, Soft and open to
    Low, Closed and Hard. So by your cervix being high, it can potentially be an indication of pregnancy - However it may just be slowly returning to its low position. What you don't say is what Day of your cycle you are on and when AF would normally be due, so its hard to say exactly what your CP should be right now?

    Like Charl said the bleeding sounds typical of Implantation bleeding, which is quite common....Your high CP is a promising indication of a possible pregnancy, however its not confirmation as your CP may change over the next few days....Like most pregnancy signs/symptoms they can never confirm a pregnancy, just give you a reason to test. You will not know 100% until you to a HPT....But things are definitely sounding good.

    Lotsa luck!

    does implantation usually occur like that though? I mean from what I have read online, the bleeding is normally noticable when the woman wipes after using the toilet. There has only been one case that I have read so far, where a woman has had bleeding the same as me- Im concerned I may have cut myself or something. Thanks for the replies ladies.

    Hiya hun

    How would you have cut yourself?

    Implantation after you have ovulated & 8dpo could be quite promising although I wouldn't use that as confirmation until you have done a HPT :D

    Good luck when you test :dust:

    I've had implantation bleeding before that I only saw when wiping or from checking CP, so that is not uncomon at all. I had pinky red bleeding which was very minimal.
    I would say 8 DPO is quite usual to have implantation bleeding as implantation averages at 7-10DOP.

    I have been obsessing about the position of my cervix so I have been feeling it no end and I have long nails. Mind you, they're not exactly sharp, they're kinda blunt. Some other people I spoke to claimed I may have cut myself and thats why I was bleeding- I have never had bleeding before apart from when Im on my period and to be honest with you, Im frightened. I know that sounds immature but I really am quite scared. If this test is negative, I will be panicking no end!

    Was your bleeding bright red to begin with, not alot though? Mine was kinda streaky, it wasn't in gushes or anything like that, it was kida mixed in with other things (if you know what I mean) Im finding this really hard to explain, I dunno why. :(

    Its highly unlikely the blood was from cutting yourself because if that was the case, it would have been bright red blood on every occasion. I'm sure you've never bit your tongue and had pink or brown bleeding? - Its red every time and so it would be if you had scratched internally.
    I can understand why you are frightened if you have never experienced any mid cycle bleeding - But even if you are not pregnant, some instances of bleeding can be due to quite halmless reasons - Such as hormone changes or old blood from ovulation spotting, rigorous sex, cervical erosion etc....

    Hope this has reassured you a little

    Thank you, I appreciate your reassurance. Im a born worrier and I panick about everything. God knows what I will be like if Im pregnant!!
    The blood was red for the first few 'feels' (like I said I only saw it when checking CP), it lasted for about 2 days- after that it was more mixed it with white CM and then it turned to pink!
    Thanks again,I will keep you updated on the test! x

    Can I also ask, when you say you had implantation bleeding before that only showed up when checking your CP; What I am describing, does that resemble what you had?

    I had a few spots of bright red blood when wiping, so I "Investigated" shall we say every time I went to the toilet and I had bright red to light pink CM over about 2 days. It was never particularly abundant. Does that sound similar to what you experienced?

    I tested at around 11.45 pm lol. Went round to tell the BF who may I add was in tears lol. Taking a second test today to make sure I am not dreaming. We stayed up celebrating til like 2.30am this morning. It's exciting but at the same time its very scary! Thank you for your responses in regards to my original post, I appreciate all the help.
    This site seems to be a nice place to be x
