Newbee - March 24

Hi, 1st thx for bothering reading me . I have stopped the bcp in october 2004, and since i've had a 30/31 cycle . I am not really familiar with how to check my cervix, but i have noticed today it was really low (i think i coud insert small finger ), wide open and soft, well when i check, it's always high, hard,closed .I have never been dry since i stopped the pill and i haven't seen that stretchy mucus for months now , but it's always damp. So my question is ,what does it mean ? I am fertile, infertile , ovulating, not ovulating, or what ? I am completely clueless. Any input would be greatly appreciated ! Thx in advance !

You are generally fertile when your cervix is high (it's really hard to reach), soft, and open. You cervical mucus should be stretchy and slippery. These are the best conditions for sperm. anything else is not considered as fertile. If you never experience this, maybe you are not ovulating. Are you checking your Basal body temperature, or using ovulation predictor kits?

Thank u Erin.WHen my cervix is high, it is also hard and closed, but never soft and open. So why is it low, open and soft ? No, im not using BBT nor OPK.

I have no idea why your cervix is topsy turvy, but i would go with open and soft as meaning that the welcome mat is out, especially if that is around day 16 or 17 of your cycle. It's not advisable to insert a finger into the cervix itself.

LOL Thank you Granpa viv but what do u mean exactly ? R u referring the "welcome mat" as the EWCM ? Im on day 25, my af is not due until another week or so, so i don't understand at all ! But thx anyway .
