Welcome!

The Beautiful Cervix Project is a grassroots movement celebrating the beauty and intricacies of women’s bodies and fertility.  This website provides accessible information about women’s fertility and menstrual cycles and showcases photographs documenting changes in the cervix and cervical fluid throughout the cycle.

The Beautiful Cervix Project encourages women to learn cervical self-exam and fertility awareness as a revolutionary path of promoting respect, confidence, and health.  We believe that this form of self-empowerment and education will help contradict shame and misinformation around women’s reproductive health and choices, affecting positive change from the personal to global levels.

We hope The Beautiful Cervix Project inspires our readers’ curiosity to observe and appreciate what is normal for each one of us as we track the subtle changes in our bodies throughout our cycles.

People have used this information for many purposes, including to realize the normalcy of their body’s cyclical changes, to celebrate their bodies, to achieve or avoid pregnancy, to understand their partners more, to further their study of medicine and health, and to promote healing through cervix-inspired art.

Whatever path led you here, welcome!

  1. Is there any kind of vaginal discharge that comes out when a woman is maybe a week pregnant? And what does it look and feel like?

    [Reply]

    beautifulcervix Reply:

    During pregnancy, the pregnant cervix will rise a bit and become softer, but the timing of this happening will vary from woman to woman and thus makes it difficult to diagnose pregnancy from examining just the cervix. For some, this will happen shortly before their period is due, but for other, this will not happen until quite a while after their pregnancy has been confirmed.

    Women may notice an increased cervical discharge when they are pregnant. Leukorrhea is a whitish colored vaginal discharge that women often see during pregnancy. The higher levels of estrogen produced during pregnancy cause the cervical glands to secrete more cervical fluid. It may become more noticeable as a woman gets further along in her pregnancy and is most common in the third trimester. However, some women may notice leukorrhea in early pregnancy.

  2. i also experienced a discharge. is it normal to have discharge at four months stage?

    [Reply]

    beautifulcervix Reply:

    Yes. Many women experience an increase in discharge – totally normal unless it smells foul or itches or burns.

  4. Discharge can also be a sign of thrush which is common during pregnancy for numerous reasons. If you are worried about anything I’d see your GP. Left untreated thrush can be passed onto your baby during labour. There is not also tell tale signs of thrush either but discharge is one.

    No need to see a doctor – Your cervix didn’t disappear – its probably just hard to reach right now as its position within the vagina changes… Try jumping up and down a few times…

  6. I wondered where the “G spot” is, Is it in the cervix or the vagina?

    [Reply]

    beautifulcervix Reply:

    The G spot is really more of an area and not necessarily one little spot – essentially, it is the urethral sponge and it is located on the top wall of the vagina, not the cervix.

I was suppose to start my period on wednesday the 29th, and I dont feel like she is any where in sight. My periods have been like clock work the last 4 months, so im anxious, and trying not to get my hopes up! Yesterday w a BFN, I decided to check CP, and it was high. I know TMI, but I have also noticed dark blue, big veins on my labia… Todays CP feels higher, hard, more closed, and discharge is a thicker whitish….So tired of let downs w BFN, and I pray im not late due to stress…Any answers?? anyone???

I am thinking I may be pregnant but not due for my period till mid wk but I feel crampy and moody and my breasts are sore and headachs of and on and just tired all the time even after a good nights rest. I know checking my cervix isn’t accurate but for now I am just wondering.. mine is usually low and soft and if it very very high and hard. I am trying to hold off a few more days to see if my period comes but IDK the suspense is killing me.. We are quiet trying but we arent not trying.

    I had an abortion 8 weeks ago (d&e, I was 23.3weeks along).
    I had a check up at 2 weeks after and at 5 and half weeks after.
    My cervix was still healing and my uterus hadn’t shrunk completely back to normal yet.
    I’ve just started my first menstrual cycle since the procedure and I’m wondering
    Does that mean everything is all healed up ok? Can I please go swimming now?

  26. I am on CD19 and about a week ago I began to feel like my cervix/uterus was going to fall out (kinda like when my son dropped into the birth canal). I have also started spotting- which never happens unless I am ready to start my period. Any ideas? I have PCOS and am TTC using acupuncture and TCM, which worked ~2 yrs ago after clomid didn’t. My ER has me going in for a transvaginal U/S, but I’m still really nervous and hope it isn’t something horrible or untreatable.

    beautifulcervix Reply:

    Hi. I don’t diagnose on this site – sorry. IF you’re concerned, talk to your doctor.
    Sometimes the hormones of pregnancy change the color of the labia, making them darker and that is normal. The hard ball you’re talking about may be your cervix, so I wonder if you’re having a uterine prolapse, which can cause pain with intercourse.
    Good luck

So confused right now :(

  29. I saw my midwife yesterday for a follow up to a miscarriage I had at the beginning of the month. I got the go ahead to start TTC as soon as we felt ready (which was immediately), and it’s been about 2 1/2 weeks since we started again.

    At my appointment yesterday, my midwife told me that my cervix looks short, but feels long, and then she said there was something ON it, and that was a great sign. I was in the middle of asking another question at the time and forgot to ask her what exactly she saw/meant by that, and now she’s out of the office until Monday and it’s driving me insane.

    Do you by any chance have an idea of what good things could be found on the cervix, and what they could mean?

    beautifulcervix Reply:

    It is difficult to just use cervical position/texture as a diagnosis for where one is in their cycle because each woman has a slightly different pattern. I recommend that you check it each day for a few cycles so you can find the pattern that your body shows you.

  31. I had abnormal cells in my cervix did the minor in office surgery to remove them, it’s was pain or anything just had a slight cramping feeling a few hours afterwards. But i follow my doctor instructions not to have sex until 6 weeks and i had to do a follow up pop smear which came back good. Now i was in my eight week and starting having sex again and i realise i had a slight bleeding i ignore it thinking maybe i still aint heal properly but i tried having sex again this like 2months after the surgery and i still saw blood but haven’t gone back to the doctor. Is my cervix to low down or something is wrong, any suggestion anyone?

  34. Hi there.
    I’m 23. The other day I was told I have a deep cervix from my gynecologist. I’ve also had very irregular periods. My last one was a year and a month ago, and I’ve recently gotten on birth control to regulate my periods. I know that no one will have definite answers… but what are the chances that I’ll be able to get pregnant? :/

    [Reply]

    beautifulcervix Reply:

    It is common for doctors to prescribe the Pill to ‘regulate’ the cycle, but I encourage women who are already having irregularities to get some holistic support to regulate their hormones/cycles because getting on the Pill is like addressing the symptoms, but not the cause of the imbalance. Depending on the type of Pill you’re on, its likely you’re not even ovulating, despite having regular bleeding – to me, that’s not ‘regulating’ your cycle, that’s taking it away. It is possible that after being on it for a bit and then coming off, you might have normal periods, but many women find their hormones/fertility even more out of whack than before, especially if they started with an irregular cycle. Have you considered talking to a holistic endocrinologist, naturopath, or acupuncturist who can help you look at your overall hormonal health picture and help you regulate?

  35. Hi, I am yet to get my first period, I was wondering if I can tell by my cervix if it is coming, and also, i have reacently gotton brown discharge (it dosent smell or anything so i am confedent i dont have an infection), could I be ovulating?

    [Reply]

    beautifulcervix Reply:

    Its common to have brown spotting (discharge) as your body gears up to menstruate and to have irregular periods for the first few years once you do get it. Also, sometimes, young women don’t ovulate (called anovulatory) for a few months even if they are bleeding like a period as their hormones are still figuring out their rhythms. Some women do get a little (pink, red, or brown) spotting in their fertile quality cervical fluid near ovulation. You could check your cervix (here’s an article I wrote about it: http://www.babymed.com/blogs/beautiful-cervix/cervical-changes-throughout-menstrual-cycle) to feel it change as you move into being a menstruating woman. A great book is Cycle Savvy by Toni Weschler.

Which is around three weeks away or a little less. My fiance (sorry for the tmi) tries to be careful when we make love, but he hit something at times, and he started feeling this “blockage” about a week after he moved in, which was June 2nd. I haven’t been able to find a sight to give me even a slightly straight answer on this.

    beautifulcervix Reply:

    You should talk to your midwife or doctor if you have any symptoms that aren’t typical for you. Yeast imbalances (often with itchiness) are very common during pregnancy and can be easily brought back into balance. You should get checked out to figure out what is going on.

  39. Hello Ladies. I was doing some researcch on HPV and I randomly came across this website. The support I see is amazing. I really feel I need that. Ive been pretty upset lately. I just found out about two weeks ago I have the HPV virus. Ive had it for year. My dcotor told me its not the HPV that causes cervical cancer. Im really worried I have never had warts or anything like that. I recently found a bump down in that area though. My doctor also told me its more than 80% likely that my immune system will fight it off, if I dont smoke and take a multi vitamin, to support my immue system. I go back to the doctor on Sept 11, she is going to take a piece of my cervix and look at it. DOES ANYONE KNOW WHAT THE POINT IS FOR HER TO DO THAT? Im really worried esp reading about cervical dysplasia.

  42. Hi my cervix is not central! I have never noticed so I’m not sure if it’s always been like this or only after 1st childbirth. Do you think it’s a problem if I’m trying to conceive? It seems quite far to the left up against the side of the vaginal canal with a gap on the other side. My Gynie has never mentioned it in any of my checkups either!Seems weird or not? Thanks Amy

    [Reply]

    beautifulcervix Reply:

    Mine is like that, too. Uteruses move around throughout the cycle depending on hormones and the tension of the pelvic muscles, the fullness of the bladder/rectum, etc. I encourage you to check throughout the cycle to see if it aligns more centrally near ovulation. There is such a wide range of normal! You may also want to check out Mayan Abdominal Massage – the Avrigo Technique.

    [Reply]

    Leslie Stager RN, LMT Reply:

    Pelvic musculature tension, related to scar tissue, accidents, emotional or postural issues, sexual issues, can affect the position of the uterus and pelvic organs. According to osteopathic, Arvigo, and Ayurvedic approaches, the uterus should be pretty aligned centrally in the pelvis. Torqued to the side can cause cramping, back pain, sciatica and such.Internal pelvic floor work, such as Holistic Pelvic Care or Integrative Pelvic Care, which is what I am practicing, can help bring more energy and awareness to how we read the world, hold our body, hold tension in our pelvis, and can help to release it so that the uterus can come back centrally. Yes the uterus moves around in the fluid matrix of the fascial pelvis, but will not be torqued far or stuck into a tilted position in the healthy vibrant pelvis! Thanks for your site!

    You could also have a retroverted uterus, which is what I have, and my cervix is always kinda tilted towards my back. I have three kids, and all were one time “oopsies”, so it doesn’t cause a problem with getting pregnant. ;) Cervical position can change a LOT throughout the day even.

I am currently tryign to become more intuned with my body and learning how my female “parts” work is one of the big things i am trying to educate my self on. I am more of a visual person when it comes to learning you adding pictures and a descripton has got to be the most amazing thing ive ever seen and i am so thankful for it. I havent became pregnant since my last miscarriage but i have been trying. Im never knew about all the technics to knowing when u are ovulating but since looking over your beautiful”art” ive been observing my fluids and i am amazed by what MY body is capable of. Id like some help on pin pointing my fertile days by charting on calender?

    Great resources/books are Taking Charge of Your Fertility and Garden of Fertility. Or take a class in Fertility Awareness or Natural Family Planning (if you are religious) – you will learn a lot! I recommend you start tracking your basal body temperature (taken upon waking) everyday in addition to your cervical fluid – you will find out when you are ovulating based on that!

    Have you ever been asked to have a hysteroscopy? I had one done and it revealed that I had a uterine septum, which could have been the cause of my early miscarriages. Ask your gine to check that as well during recurrent miscarriage investigations.

  45. Hi,

    I have just returned from a cervical cancer screening and the doctor commented that she was surprised where my cervix was – she said it was central, which she wasn’t expecting as I haven’t had a baby.

    She did say it was nothing to worry about but I’d like to know more about why it is so far forward and whether this means anything regarding future pregnancies or sexual experiences?

    Any advice or comments would be gratefully received!

  47. Thank you SO much for my self-exam kit! I saw the first blood of my new cycle from inside my body yesterday! A profound kind of bearing witness to my cycles. I’m so grateful and very curious about continuing to connect to my body this way.

    I also noticed that my body felt very irritated afterwards… pouty even… like “what did you just do to me?” I realized that I have so much baggage around being examined in medical offices that the residual discomfort arose. So my body and I had a little conversation about what I was up to… I’m imagining I’ll be more relaxed next time, but we’ll see. Thanks again!

  49. Dear Beautiful Cervix,

    I LOVE that I’ve stumbled upon this site. I had no idea what a cervix looked like, nor did I know where it was inside me or its purpose! Thank you! I am a 26yr old white female. I’ve been sexually active for about 10 years now. I don’t have pain during sex. I’ve never been pregnant. I’ve never had an abnormal Pap. My question is, is it normal that I can see what looks to be my cervix in a mirror when I simply just use my fingers to spead my lips apart…? I googled it, and I’ve read that a woman’s cervix is way up in her vagina, like 5 inches, and it can’t be seen without use of a speculum. Should I be worried? I’ve had Paps and pelvic exams. No doc has ever said anything but one; a PA-C said that I had a “low” cervix, and that because it’s so low, it may make child birth easier… What do you think?

    You might be seeing your urethral sponge because that also has a slight dimple/hole in it, especially if it is at the top of your vaginal opening….? You might want to try inserting your finger into your vagina and feeling for your cervix throughout the cycle to see if it changes in depth:

  51. Hi, I’m 15 going on 16. And Im a virgin Lately, (since two days ago) my vagina felt emm, clogged up? I would say. It feels rough at first then I feel my cervix. Like only two centimeters after. Or at least I think its my cervix. It feels roundish and kinda connected all over. It has like an inward arch at the tip but it doesn’t feel like a hole. It feels like one side is longer than the other. It feels cylindrical. I guess and connected all around. Like I can’t find an opening after that. It’s smooth. This only started a few days ago. It never felt like this before and my period is not due yet but I’m really really terribly scared. Is something wrong with me? I’m too Nervous to tell my mom. And I don’t know any gyno. I’m scared. What is it please? Oh and I feel completely normal. No pain no discomfort. Just really nervous. Please help. :’/

    The smooth cylinder sounds like your cervix you’re feeling! The roughness is probably your urethral sponge or vaginal rugae.

  52. I’m curious whether the texture of the cervix can change throughout the menstrual cycle. Many fertility awareness tutorials encourage you to check for a “soft” or “firm” cervix to note where you are in the cycle. I’ve noticed this cycle that my cervix has a rough edge or a kind of ragged feeling. Most of the information I’ve found on this relates to women who have already had children, of which I’ve none. Is a rough cervix a normal part of a cycle?

  53. Dear beautiful cervix I am 24 and was ttc alot of women told me to check my cervix to see if I ovulated but when I feel in the vagina the only thing I feel at the back is very spongy I never can feel the whole even during my menstruation so what exactly does it feel like?

  57. New to this “asking complete strangers personal questions” but here goes it. I have been checking my cervix for several months now off and on. The past month and half I have documented daily ( or close to) …my cervix is high and closed and goes from soft to Med… in fact my cervix was don’t high yesterday that I could barely touch it. I am due to start my period in two days. Should this be how it should feel?
    Any thoughts?

  58. So weirdly enough, I was feeling for my cervix (Still learning to ropes down there), and I couldn’t feel the opening like they tell you to feel for. I finally found it, but it was hard to get to, because my cervix was leaning (if that makes sense)and the opening was facing the towards the back of my body. Is that normal? I’ve had paps done, none of my doctors ever said I had a weirdly angled cervix.

    [Reply]

    beautifulcervix Reply:

    The uterus is attached to the pelvis by ligaments- the tension of the ligaments can be affected by hormones (where you are in your cycle), muscular tension, fullness of bladder/colon, etc. You may find the angle of your cervix changes slightly from day to day. But, it is also normal to have a uterus that is more forward tipping or rear-tipping that what you find in anatomy texts. You may want to research anteverted/anteflexed uterus position.

  59. I am glad to have found this site. I am 45, have 11 children and am currently having concerns about my cervical health. I am having pain and bleeding after sex, aching legs and hips. and my cervix/vagina is just aching constantly. I had a pap smear done yesterday and my dr said that I had nabothian cysts larger than any she had ever seen. I have also had a slightly abnormal pap smear in the past.I am waiting for a week to see if the results show anything more sinister. I also have a prolapse. So either way I have to see the gyn after I see the dr again. Im pretty concerned about what the outcome will be…..but just waiting to find out something is difficult.

  60. Hello, when I was 17 I had my little girl, I’m 21 now and over the past few months I have noticed that my cervix is extremally low, is this normal?? Thankyou

    [Reply]

  61. Hi I am 20years old and I have had an IUD since I was 16. My periods are usually regular and I have noticed that before my period I often have discomfort during sex because my cervix becomes lower, but over the last few days I have had very noticeable pain every time I have had sex with my partner, so I decided to check the position of my cervix and it is very low, I can feel where the strings of my IUD go into my cervix and it feels quite large and solid. It is coming up to the time when my period may possibly be due although it is still a little early, so this could be a period that has particularly affected me cervix, but is there anything else it could be because I am quite worried.
    Thanks,
    B.

  62. I was trying to find some answers about some questions I have. My husband says during sex at times he cannot feel anything and that it feels pushed up, as opposed to other times he can feel things and can tell he is pushing my insides up. This leads him to believe I cheat on him because at times we will not have sex for about a week to let everything go back to normal and it will still feel pushed up or stretched. Does your insides, cervix, or walls go up or down or change…and if so what causes that or causes it to be different at times? He says he can tell how far he can usually get inside of me and he is definatly above average so when we dont have sex for a while my insides usually come back down to normal and when they dont and they are pushed up further then where he can reach he believes I am cheating on him with someone larger in size but im not cheating. Any explainations please??

    You poor thing! Your partner is wrong about the cause for the differences! Many things contribute to how the vaginal walls and canal feels- including how sensitive or even engorged your partner is at the time he is making note of how it feels! If you checked a male’s testicles (balls) or closely observed his penis, you would notice changes in them from day to day and perhaps from a certain time of day to another- even a difference from one hour to another, and changes also through the sexual act and through out a month, and year to year. If testicles felt fuller, larger, smaller, puffier, tighter, more hanging or more tightly carried close to the body one time compared to a later time would that mean he was cheating? No! I am in my late 40’s, a very petite person, and have some experience with noticing significant changes in that area that affect sexual activities. How full or congested- what you call ‘down’- your vagina is, is determined by your monthly cycle, fluctuation or changing hormones, and water retention, muscle tone or how relaxed you are, dehydration/hydration level and increased/decreased blood flow to that entire area- including inside your vagina. On top of all of that, your cervix/uterus may tip or change position throughout the day- and from day to day. Further, if you have a tipped uterus, these changes may be even more noticeable. FURTHER, during sexual activity the uterus, vaginal walls- everything- goes through changes, and when you become aroused, and then if/when you orgasm- and how strongly you do so- and then, also further changes occur after orgasm. (Which for me, right before and after orgasm my tipped uterus become very tipped and ‘comes down’ and it can be painful with penetration sometimes- because of the changed position of the cervix, tension being held in that part of the body (remember, there are muscles and ligaments all over the place in that region), swelling, and contraction of the uterus, increased blood flow which causes some swelling of the inside tissues, maybe also actual tenderness because of the contractions of the vagina muscles and the uterus during orgasm. Further, the position used during sex makes a difference, as well. The bowels and stomach contents- and where the contents are in the digestive track also affect how full the body cavity is- which would have an affect of being heavier or lighter on the pelvic floor. Gravity and weight of body contents push down on the pelvic area- which would be felt inside. Now that you know all of that- please, work on just relaxing and insist on trust in your relationship. Both of you take time to notice the differences in your own and each other’s bodies throughout the day, from day to day, and throughout the month. Also, take time to notice the differences you both go through during sex. Now that you know all this, let that be an end to further discussions by the two of you about how your vagina feels to determine your faithfulness. If it continues after you have shared this with your partner, I’d say there are some major issues that need to be addressed- namely his lack of trust- or his insecurity or a using this accusation to try to control you or intimidate you or make you feel insecure. If you don’t believe what I have written, ask ANY OB/GYN. Take Care :)

  66. Hello there!! I will be 21 years old in September. I recently found out I am pregnant (currently six weeks/ due on Valentine’s Day). I am a high risk pregnancy for multiple reasons, but mainly because I have a history of spontaneous abortions (miscarriages). I never went to the doctor when I was younger, so never knew what the problem was. The doctor told me today that after viewing an ultrasound I had done at 5 weeks and 5 days pregnant, my cervix was too small/ short and this could be a cause for concern. How big should my cervix have been at 5 to 6 weeks? Also, how could a small cervix affect me and my baby? Any info would be helpful. Thanks!!!

    It’s important that you feel comfortable during and are enjoying sex. It should not be painful. Have you talked to your boyfriend about this? Is it painful only when his penis is inside you, or also with fingers? Have you tried going slowly? Using lubricant? I would suggest you try talking with your doctor about this if it continues to be painful.

  74. For all your concerns about a short cervix. My experience is this. When I got married I got pg on our honeymoon. I did feel sick and tied a lot. But at 8 wks I miscarried. Went to dr and she said no sex for at least 1 period. So the next time we had sex I got pg and yet another miscarriage. This dr wouldn’t do anything for me so I went to another dr who tested my hormones. My progesterone was at .92 when normal range when ovulating is 3.3. So it was extremely low. She didn’t know what to do after that so I went to a naturopathic dr who gave me vaginal progesterone. She told me it could take up to 6 months to get my levels normal. I didn’t want to wait that long because by this time I already had 4 miscarriages. Well 1 time I was at chiropractor I mentioned that I keep haveing miscarriages and he asked me if I knew what the problem was and I said yes I’m low on progesterone. And he says well I can fix that. He told me that the communication line from the pituary glad in ur brain down to your woman parts in through your spine and sometime can be pinched. So he adjusted my back a different way. He told me to come back in next week. So I did. The next time I had sex I knew instantly I was pg. I felt my whole body connect. The next morning I couldn’t get out of bed because I was so sick:) I had a total on 11 miscarriages (1 recently) because I had so many misses my cervix was tired out so I had to have it stitched shut so that my baby wouldn’t fall out. But that failed to work as long as they wanted it to. My precious Logan was born at 28 weeks gestation and is now a year old. So if your cervix is short please have it checked out by ultrasound. Your will probably have to be firm in it be piste most dr won’t do it. So find a good ob dr who will listen to your concerns and act on them. It may be that u have a short cervix which they call incompetent cervix and it will need stitched up when u pg

  75. I’m 21, ttc #1 after recent mc. I came across this website yesterday when looking for info on how to check my cervix, this website is amazing! Didn’t think I’d come across something like this with real pics and everything, I really want to buy the kit so I can look at my own cervix. I didn’t know what a cervix really looked like but I imagined by the way mine felt that it was two ovals pushed together.. Mine doesn’t feel round like it looks in the pictures, mine almost feels like two bits.. Like a ball with a dent in it I suppose. Do you know what I mean? I think the opening is in the dented bit, am I right?? Is my cervix meant to feel like this?

  85. Hi,
    I’m a 27 year old woman and I am currently trying to become pregnant. I’ve recently had a gynecologist visit because I still have irregular periods a year off of the pill. My doctor told me during the visit that I had a wide cervix and was surprised that I had not had any children before. I was wondering if this normal? I feel really insulted/embarrassed/hurt because of it and I’m not even sure I should feel this way. I had never really thought about my cervix before. I feel a little ashamed and freak like now. Does this mean that I’m “loose”? I’m 5’8 and have a hippy/curvy build, could I just be made this way? What is “normal” for a cervix? I would love to hear opinions or info on the subject. I want to be comfortable and accepting of my body, but I don’t really know anything about cervix normality..

Now I have had 2 periods since but they have been rather un-normal for me (either just clots and stops for a day then the river flow then stops for a day etc) I have noticed the past 2x I have checked myself that my cervix has been 1cm to now 2cm should I worry or what could this be? Im stunned as to what It may be I havent taken 1 Pregnancy test and it was a negative but I almost feel like my body is saying that its wrong. For a month I have felt like fetal movement and very defined as I can feel it internally as well as external and sometimes can see it as well. Please help if you can…..Thanks

  99. I just received my self exam kit today and was able to see my cervix for the first time! I could not the first time and tried v twice so I rested for a couple hours relaxed and when I went back the second time was able to see my cervix!!! Not quite as well or pretty this first time as some of the pros but I did see it. This has been an amazing experience and I am so excited to continue to view my cervix!

    Yes – labia are not always symmetrical.
