    Default Soft and Low Cervix In early Pregnancy

    Im 12dpo and my cervix was high and firm a few days ago but yesterday I noticed it started to lower and today instead of low and firm its low and soft . and it kinda feels swollen almost..? Does this happen when your pregnant???????did this happen to any of you?

    ummm.. just a word of advice.. NEVER play with your cervix while pregnant! It can be very dangerous! I would try and relax, leave it alone and ask your OB if you are concerned.

    ITA - don't check your cervix. Its a big no no! But to answer your question, your cervix does change in early PG. Did you test?

    Even if there is a chance.. I would keep your hands off the cervix just in case!

    If touching the cervix in early pregnancy is unsafe, how come sex in early pregnancy is safe? I know for me, I know that I can feel him touching my cervix when we have sex. I'm not pregnant, just curious.

    Well, hopefully, your guy is CLEAN. There's a much better chance of that than your hands (and esp fingernails) being clean. Also, fingernails can scratch, even if you aren't aware of it. There's also a higher chance of a finger irritating the OS than a male part. There's plenty of other reasons but I think I'll leave it at that.

    Are you kidding me? You know that they don't actually wipe after peeing, right? Do you make your partner clean his penis every time before you have sex? These are genitals we are talking about here. At least you can wash your hands with antibacterial soap etc. I guess the fingernails are a valid point though...

    When you are PG your cervix is easily irritated and can bleed more easily. Your risk of infection is greater by reaching up that far. Especially if your cervix is open! As you progress in your PG you risk bringing on pre-term labor by messing with your cervix.

    Not to get into details.. but urine is sterile.. so even if you have a guy that is kinda icky and doesn't clean up.. the urine is sterile.. Just wanted to clear that up a bit.

    Thanks Deedles.. i was just coming to post links to one of those sites!

    ok I just registered with this site to reply as I can't help correcting wrong information, urine is by NOT sterile the only thing to come out of a penis thats sterile (but not for a few certain disease sufferers) is semen. I would suggest checking your source's of information before posting.

    Skated - for the most part, urine IS sterile. The only time you'll see bacteria is if there is an infection. Check it out on wikipedia and numerous other sites. The 'toxins' that are in urine are natural by products like urea, salts, etc, NOT bacteria. In fact, you can drink your pee (gross i know) if you're ever in an emergency situation and you wont get sick. It prevents dehydration to a certain extent.

    From what I understand, starting in early pregnancy the cervix is high and closed.. and a mucous plug starts to develop rather early on. So checking your cervix shouldnt disturb anything as long as your hands are clean beforehand. Having sex doesnt disturb it either for this reason.

    Right before menstruation, it gets soft and opens slightly to release the lining.

    Yep, urine is sterile. This is why you wipe from front to back.

    lol, in MOST cases urine IS sterile.... and BTW ,my BF actually does "wipe" after her pees :-) And i believe your cervix is supposed to be high and closed in early pregnancy. I think if you wash really well, and be careful you won't hurt anything by checking your cervix.
