Hi ladies. Just as soon as I started feeling okay enough to have sex with my husband again, I was in the shower and thought I would very gently check to see where my cervix was. I am glad I did! When I first got pregnant, my cervix was so high that I couldn't even touch it. Now, at 10 weeks, it is so low that I can touch it after inserting only half a finger...it is right there! It is probably only about 1.5 inches inside my body and that makes me alittle nervous. I don't have a doctors appointment for several weeks - but I still have all my pregnancy symptoms...nausea and very sore breasts...anyone else have an extremely low cervix? I couldn't have sex now even if I wanted to!!

Hi, I don't know what it means but I'm experiencing something similar. I am 6wks and my 1st dr. appt is next tues. but I have normal symptoms-sore breasts, tired, crabby, no sickness yet though. dh and I had sex this morning and i had very slight spotting. Just very light pink when i wiped. Wasn't painful or anything But later today I checked my cervix and it is very low also. I don't know what it means but kind of scares me.

If your cercix is that low where is your urethra?


* - November 17th, 2005 3:39 PM

Your urethra is in a different part. It's not in the vaginal cavity it is between your vagina and your clitoris and connects to the bladder. It is very small and hard to find, but its there. If it were in the same orifice as your cervix and uterus you'd be alot more prone to get infections and such.

Thanks * ! I don't have a clue where the urethra is, but I will take your word for it. I have been doing some research and found that some women end up with their cervix so low, that they can feel it with their hand when they wipe. Apparently, as long as it is closed it is not a problem...in fact, if it is too low they can somehow push it back up...have NO idea how, but that is what I have read.

Unfortunately, you are wrong. Your urethra IS in your vagina... in fact, I think that is what you are feeling. Itg is located just inside of the vaginal opening, maybe just over a fingertip.. and it is a fleshy bump the size of a marble. Your cervix is located behind your urethra, maybe a finger length or more. Just to proove me wrong.. next time you get ready to take a bath, bring a mirror with you.. LOOK at yourself.. and ( I know this sounds a little dirty) maybe pee just a little. I think you will see that the "cervix" that you are feeling is ACTUALLY your urethra.

Ummm...no...it is my cervix. I think * was right...I did some research and called my doctor and he said the urethra is not inside the vagina and that my cervix has probably dropped b/c the baby is getting bigger. Thanks for your advice, but I think you are wrong.

I am going to school for nursing and just learned about the reproductive systems and that is how I came across the info about your urethra not being in the vaginal opening because when I learned that I was surprised because I formerly assumed it was up in there somewhere. Please believe me, this information is valid. Thanks Ava.

OK. then where is YOUR urethra? where do YOU pee out of? You will be able to see if you do so with a mirror. You will SEE your urethra. ( how someone can't even know about their own basic anatomy just confuses me.) and believe me, you will SEE that your urine is coming out of a bump just inside your vaginal opening.. despite your claims otherwise. You don't have to take my word for it.... GO CHECK FOR YOURSELF.


* - November 18th, 2005 8:45 PM

It doesn't make any sense in argueing about it just look at any map of the female reproductive body and you will see. When you are peeing on your mirror it may look like it but it is a completely different hole. Believe me I wouldn't say something as a matter of fact unless I knew for sure.


* - November 18th, 2005 8:50 PM

Go to google and look up -female reproductive system-go to the pictures option and it will show tons of diagrams and then you'll see.


. - November 18th, 2005 9:14 PM

A drawn picture doesn't accurately represent actual female anatomy. Maybe look at an actual picture? Here's one to try..http://www.clitical.com/anatomy/closeup2.php ( the urethra isn't labled on this diagram, but it is the bump just under where the arrow ends pointing at the vagina. ) Although the easiest way to really know, not looking at pictures on the net, is to GO LOOK AT YOURSELF.


* - November 18th, 2005 9:48 PM

Whatever, you irritate me-Goodbye


. - November 18th, 2005 9:51 PM

I see that you must have checked.. look, a lot of people don't know their own anatomy, it's not a big deal.


* - November 18th, 2005 10:07 PM

You know you refer me to a porn site where it doesn't even label the urethra and then you expect me to believe you over scientific and educational documentation. Whatever, did you look it up how I suggested? So you can't blame me if I believe valid research over your theory about peeing on your mirror. Sorry. You need to get your facts. Even if it is close to the vagina it is still a different hole and I was not wrong. If you looked it up you would be able to admit that.


* - November 18th, 2005 10:13 PM

I did look at that site and clicked on the Female Anatomy to the left and that backs me up also. Check it out.


Ava - November 18th, 2005 10:33 PM

Since this became such an issue, I went and peed on a mirror...sorry * is still right...I have a "pee hole" above my vaginal opening, right below the clitoris, and then the vaginal opening, and then the rectum...So 3 holes that have nothing to do with each other. OMG...I can't believe I actually peed on a mirror!!
