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. I’ve got a 3 month old bub and have just started checking my cervix as I used to, as part of natural family planning. In the last week I’ve noticed what feels like scar tissue or something to the right of the entrance where it would normally feel smooth. Not sure if I’d say it feels like a bump, more jagged/lumpy. I’ve had 3 vaginal births, never any issues. In a country town so Dr appointment is 3 weeks away. Any ideas?

But I have noticed it goes away when I’m pregnant and throughout my pregnancy comes and goes , with my last baby I had I never got sick, never got sore nipples, never had headaches none of the common signs of pregnancy. Now I’m getting headaches feel sick sometimes having neck pain my CF fluid went away sometimes it feels like water.

  4. Hi. I had almost had all the early pregnancy symptoms. Tested 3 days before my AF was due Nd got it negative. But ssymptoms kind of started to continue. I dnt have nausea exactly. Rest all I have. My AF was due yesterday. I had few drops of bleeding. And later almost dry. I still have frequent urination, backache at the peak! Today I’m almost dry and some brown mucus mixed discharge which is hardly visible. Could I be pregnant?

  6. It is the day before my period and have been tracking CM and cervix position and hardness/softness. My last 2 month calenders have started to not match at allll. My cervix is pretty high and in-between. hard and soft. I have a white clumpy thicker CM and discharge is watery and see through as opposed to last month where my discharge wa thicker and white the day before my period. I’m convinced these are pretty obvious signs of pregnancy but I am waiting to spend money on a test until I’m late. I love being able to track your body like this. Are these signs of impending period or possible pregnancy? P.S. my right upper thigh has been hurting today?? That’s new!!

  20. My gynecologist says my cervix is falling. It’s an inch away from the opening. She says that it may fall out. I don’t know what to do.

  21. I have a hard lump just inside my vagina. It’s on the front wall and it doesn’t hurt and it’s just a little bit squishy. I think it’s been there for years and I can’t see it with a mirror, but it’s pretty smooth and extends for one to two inches. After the hard lump, the tissue goes back to being really soft, so I don’t think it’s the cervix. Is it a problem, or is this normal?

  22. I have a large ball shaped thing inside my vagina?! A lot of people have been telling me that i have a low cervix but sometimes during sexual intercourse it is hit and i feel the pain so badly that my ovaries start to contract and hurt like hell. Please advice??

  23. Whenever i have sex there is white stuff left on the condom afterwards. I’ve done some research and apparently this is discharge? my boyfriend asked me what it was and i felt somewhat embarrassed because he’s had past relationships and was sexually active in those too and hadn’t experienced the “discharge” before so it made me think it was weird or something was wrong with me. He was very kind and just asked about it out of curiosity but it still made me think that maybe there was something wrong with me? I just want to know if the visible discharge is normal and why it shows after intercourse. Thanks in advance:)

  24. we had sex 5 out of 7 days last week when I’m pretty sure I ovulated. My cervix is now low and seems to be closed. I’m also unusually dry. Could this mean I’m pregnant? Or what could this mean? Anyone pregnant have this? I hate the waiting game!!

    Thanks

  33. I have a question. Last month I thought I was pregnant because I had had unprotected sex 5days before ovulation, but I got my period, even though it came a week early, it was full of clots (sorry TMI) I had no cramps, which never happens, but I had my period so I didn’t think I was pregnant anymore. This month, my period is due on the 25th, the past 2 days however, I have been having mild cramps, like the ones you get right before af arrives, but for me I have those a day before not 2 or more and it usually comes with brown spotting. This time nothing. It’s completely dry, my cm is tacky, and looks a lot like wet tissue. I have a very low cervix so I can always feel it. This time it’s soft and closed, so in totally confused. I don’t know what is happening. Someone please help
