cervix

Just wondering if anyone knew what a closed cervix feels like.  Does it feel like a 1/2 inch slit?  Not a hole, but a slit.  Like the slit to your lips when your mouth is close......Anything would help...Thanks

I think that sounds like a pretty good description of one.  You should be able to find photographs of cervixes on the web by googling the word.

It may sound crazy but I have been reading it everywhere..(that woman check the cervix to make sure they are pregnant or not).  WEll, I checked mine and it feels low, wet and it feels as if it as a slit in it but not a hole.  I read that if you are pregnant your cervix should be closed. But I can't tell if its closed or open.  I would be 5 wks pregnant if I am pregnant.  My husband and I have been trying for 3 1/2 yrs now.  I have had 2 miscarriages and 1 tubal.  I have NOT had a successful pregnancy yet and I am 24 yrs old.  I am now 6 days late.  The day my period was due I began getting menstrual type cramping and the sore, heavy boobs but AF never came.  I still have the menstrual type cramping on and off and my boobs still hurt when push on and my nipples when pinched lightly. I have no other pregnacy symptoms. So, I was just wondering if anyone knew so maybe it could help me figure out if I could be pregnat or what....I wont be able to take a pregnacy test until tomorrow...

the best thing to tell you is to wait till tomorrow take a test and find out if it comes out positive, CONGRATS,
