Participate

Thank you

This project exists because of the curious and bold women who have volunteered to photograph their own cervices and submit them to the project for the education of the general public.  We are all so grateful to you!

Join the Club!

If you are interested in participating in this project by photographing your own cervix, please email us and we will send you complete instructions.  Please note: I am on maternity leave until June of 2015 so will not be responding to emails until then.

Beautiful Cervix Project’s vision is to document a variety of cervices.  We are happy to work with anyone wishing to participate, but are currently especially seeking women who:

  • Are pregnant
  • Are willing to endure a speculum exam during labor (to view a dilating cervix)
  • Have given birth and want to document an entire cycle
  • Have short, long or anovulatory cycles
  • Have an STI or vaginal infection
  • Have had a colposcopy or LEEP procedure
  • Have two cervices/uteri
  • Are on the birth control pill or other hormonal contraceptive device

Most cameras have a hard time focusing on something in the dark (like a beautiful cervix tucked inside a vagina), so here’s a DIY cervical photographing tutorial:

  • Use the speculum to view your cervix.
  • Put the camera on ‘macro’ function (usually looks like a little flower image) and turn on the flash.  You may need to also shine the flashlight into the vagina during the photo.
  • Note about how deep into the vagina your cervix is — say 3 inches.  Have your partner focus the camera on something 3 inches away from the lens (like her/his hand) and push the shutter down half way and hold it.  Then, he/she’ll move the camera up to the mouth of the vagina and then push the shutter all the way down to take the photo.

  1. Hello! I’m so happy that you’ve migrated to this new site, though I’m sorry that you had to do so because of trouble with the old one. I am the director of the Fertility Awareness Center, and I have been wanting to thank you for the link, and more importantly for the fabulous site! I was just writing my newsletter, and when I went to test the link to your site, I found this new one. This site is such a valuable contribution to Fertility Awareness and women’s empowerment through self-knowledge. We can talk endlessly about cervix observation, but everyone wants pictures, and there just aren’t many out there. Thank you for helping to demystify the cervix, and for helping women learn to manage their fertility naturally. I would love to discuss your ideas for taking this project further. Please do get in touch with me at your convenience.

  2. Wonderful project! Kudos to you for undertaking it. I am also a student midwife and might be interested in participating – I think that my cervix might have something novel to offer! ;) My body appears to be revving up to start ovulating/cycling post 13 months of lactation induced amenorrhea (I got my first period after 16 months with my first daughter). I know this can be quite a variable process as some women ovulate prior to their first post-partum period and others have a number of infertile cycles before ovulating. Such interesting stuff! Feel free to be in touch!

  3. Hi!

    Thanks for making this website, it is very informational and I’ve never seen anything like it. I’m not sure if it would help, but I have PCOS and have very long cycles. If taking pictures of my cervix could help, I’d be willing!

    [Reply]

  4. I was just introduced to this website by a health educator. What an amazing project! I’ve been trying to track my cycle using an online fertility calendar, but nothing compares to your beautiful pictures. I think I will be recreating this project for my own personal self-knowledge. However, if you would like to use the images I take, please let me know. I’d love to be involved!

    [Reply]

  5. Wow, wow, wow! As a woman, midwifery student, and an avid learner I am completely fascinated by what you have done. I would love to be involved with this project! I myself have a tilted cervix, and have never felt or seen it and think it would be wonderful to do so. So please let me know if you are still looking for volunteers! If so, I’d love to participate.

  6. I would absolutely LOVE to participate in this study. I even already have a headlamp, speculum, and willing boyfriend! Please get in touch with me at your convenience. Thanks!

  7. As a doula I find this fascinating! Yes please, count me in!! I’ve had one baby and am trying for another. Have a 32 day cycle at the moment.
    Thanks!

  8. I would absolutely participate in this process. I’m 30, with one child, gave birth vaginally. I bet my mom would do this too. I’ll ask her. She’d in her 50s and gave birth to two children vaginally and has officially reached menopause this year.

    [Reply]

  9. I too am a student midwife, and found this work fascinating. It would be quite easy for me to re-use one of the plastic speculums (specula?!) we use in some of our clinics here, as I also have a camera and willing partner. I will now be using your website as a reference for my peers and also our clients – it is invaluable!

  10. I’d like to participate in this process. I’m 28, a LPN. I have given birth 1 time vaginally and 2 times via c-section. I have an incompetent cervic and have had 2 cerclages placed and removed with my two children. I also have a longer cycle.

    [Reply]

  11. Fantastic job ! I’ve ordered my kit and just waiting to go :-) I’ve given birth once and I’m really excited to see what my own cervix looks like (I must get out more often LOL).

    Looking forward to participating !

  12. My sentiments echo many of those already noted. than you so much for such a perspective altering opportunity. I have suffered from contact dermatitis in my yoni (vagina) for many years and have found it challenging to know what is a “normal” or infected discharge, and your photos definitely validate that. It also show me how beautiful I am on the inside. I have a tantra website (and run sacred sexuality workshops)and would love to send a link to your site in one of our monthly enewsletters, with your approval.

    [Reply]

  13. i think you are doing beautiful, empowering, and such important work. i would LOVE to participate. i am a doula, and an aspiring midwife. i work for the women’s center at my college and we happen to have hundreds of wrapped and sealed plastic speculum that were donated…let me know what sort of participation you are looking for – i have a feeling i could rally a troop of passionate women to be involved.

    [Reply]

  14. I’m not a student, and I don’t have a vagina. I’m just curious. And I must say: what a spectacular site this is! Very educational, it’s not everyday we get to see what’s “inside” and how it changes during the cycle.

    Thank you very much!

    [Reply]

  15. I LOVE this site! I am a student midwife and massage therapist. Women are hungry to understand their bodies and to discover the wide range of normal that exists. I would be thrilled and honored to participate in this project. Can’t wait to hear more.

    With gratitude

  16. What a fantastic site. I would love to participate. I am 29yrs old have had 4 vaginal births. I currently have a mirena coil fitted and would love to know what it is doing to my body through my cycle

    [Reply]

  17. WOW! This is truly amazing! and kind of gross, hehe but its our body and its so interesting to see how its made. Just looking at the walls of the vagina it looks so strong which it is because it stretches enough to accomodate a baby then goes back to normal. its truly incredible. I love these pictures. thanks so much.

    [Reply]

  18. I have found your site to be very helpful. I came across the original site through a natural parenting group on yahoo. I would love to participate in your project. I have had three children and I am currently tandem nursing my two youngest. Please, let me know if you’re still interested in getting other women’s cevices involved.

  21. This is perhaps the most amazing site I’ve ever seen. Keep up the great (and very valuable) work!

    I’m 45, the mother of 3 and currently going through menopause. I’d love to participate, just have to talk my partner into taking the pictures.

  22. Your pictures of the cervix during a menstrual cycle are wonderful. I work at Women’s Health Specialists, a Feminist Women’s Health Center (a non-profit, women-controlled clinic that grew out of the women’s health movement of the 1970’s). You can find a plethora of information on our website at: http://www.cawhs.org on the self-help movement, self-exam, women’s health information, and pictures of women’s cervixes at various stages in their cycles. The Federation of Feminist Women’s Health Center (a group of women-controlled clinics) practiced self-help, which was pioneered by Carol Downer. You can find Carol Downer on our website. The Federation of FWHC’s published a book called A New View of a Woman’s Body, that contains self-help information and pictures of women’s cervixes. Many of the pictures in the book came out of study on menstrual cycles that 9 women conducted in a self-help group at the Los Angeles FWHC in 1975. Some of you may be interested in the book, which describes this study and the pictures. You can find out about the book, and how to get it and a speculum kit on our website.
    It is great seeing other women out there doing the same thing! Jude

  23. What an awesome project! While I have always been in tune with my body, your visual documentation has been helpful in my own fertility and return to fertility process.

    I am a mother of 2.5 year and still nursing. The nursing piece has had a significant impact on my return to fertility. I just had my first real menstrual cycle since I delivered my son over 2.5 years ago. (I bled on May 9, 2009, the full moon.) Prior to that my last real cycle was November 11, 2005!…when I was 35 years old.

    I haven’t had normal cervical/hormonal changes in literally years. My body is now reawakening. I am also trying for another pregnancy (at age 39) which is also a challenge. One of the simple challenges is that breastfeeding moms do not have as much cervical fluid. It is also possible to have more anovulatory cycle. We will see.

    I would be happy to document my findings as I move forward in my quest. Let me know if you are interested.

    Thanks again for all your efforts. It most definitely gives me something to work with in my babymaking efforts.

  24. I would love to participate. Where can I get a speculum? I had a pap smear yesterday, at my midwives office. I let my friend who is a midwife student and she gave me a mirror so I could see my cervix. It was the most incredible thing I have ever seen. I had a baby last year so my cervix will never fully close again and looks like a little smile. I was just finishing menstruating and it was just beautiful. She actually directed me to your site and I love it.

    [Reply]

  25. I was very excited to find your website to help me hopefully tract my progress, I am 26 and my husband and I have been trying to conceive for 5 years now. 3 years ago I was diagnosed with PCOS and am having trouble ovulating, I take prometrium monthly just to have a period but can never remember to take my temperature before I get out of bed and I never see results with ovulation kits. I would like to participate and could use some more information to hopefully find out how close I am getting to ovulating or if I am ovulating and don’t realize it. Please send me some more information, when I do conceive I would be willing to document or participate throughout my whole pregnancy because I know how it feels to struggle with not understanding.

  26. I wouldn’t mind being a participant! I’m 35, recently married, no children…however, I’m trying to change that. I came across your site a few months ago trying to get more information about my body now that I’m trying to conceive. Believe me, I didn’t know as much as what I’ve learned here! Let me know what I need to do!

  27. For everyone that is interested in participating, please note the e-mail address to contact the person is at the top of the page, or at the end of this message. Great informative website, little bit of concern that many people want to participate, but no updates available. I hope something hasn’t happend or the project hasn’t been abandoned.

    Again, here is the e-mail to contact the person heading this project if she’s still doing it.

  28. I’m just wondering, does the rigidity of the cervix change as a woman “begins” menopause? I have missed my “first” period. I suspected that I was pregnant but have been told I’m not(pee test). I’m 48 years old, and in a rather intimate session with myself, discovered that my uterus is “mushy”. I just want to know what the cycle is at this stage of life, and is that normal.

    I’m glad to have come across your site as well. I noticed that you don’t have any info for women at my age: perimenopausal; might you need a subject?/!

    [Reply]

  29. I am 32yrs old trying to conceive, but its not happening. I have a 28day cycle. In april my first day of period was 4th april, me and my hubby had tried on 15th april which is 12th day,my fertile days were between 15th to 20th april. I was to ovulate on 18th april according to this ukparentslounge website. But it didnt happen.
    Again, I tried in june where my first day of period(5day) was 12thjune. We tried on 21stjune(10th day) and on the night of 26th june (15th day) and my fertile days were 23rd to 28th june.
    Can anybody help and answer how can we help ourselves for conceiving .

    Looking forward for ur replies and advice.

  30. I was looking at this and I was wondering if it was possible to find a virgin volunteer, over the age of 18 to attempt this and see if there are any differences? I am under the age of 18 but I find this information fascinating and would love to see what it looks like.

  31. This is so insanely interesting, and I’m considering participating. I’m 22, gave birth vaginally at 19, and had half of my cervix removed two years ago, cone biopsy, thanks to HPV.
    Not sure whether you’re going for the abnormal cervix here, but hey, we could perhaps feature mine around Christmas…my OB says it looks like a wreath :)

  33. I told my sister n law about this and she is interested in finding out what her cervix looks like too. She is beginning her 12 weeks of pregnancy on November 30th via IVF. She is 25 years old and this is her first pregnancy.

    I also have a sister that is 36 and never had children. She has had fertility and female problems.

    I have anothe sister that is 34 and has had 4 vaginal births and no fertility problems.

    If they ok me to get pics of their cervix I will pass them on to you.

  34. 33yo mother of 4, another aspiring midwife. All birthed naturally and vaginally. Have always had long, powerful, somewhat unpredictable cycles. Range from 7-10 days of menstruation and 32 days total to missing a cycle completely.

    What a neat project – celebrating the uniqueness and similarities of what makes us women! I would like to participate for the education and empowerment of all women, as well as for satisfying my personal curiosities.

    Have you considered a picture of a prolapsed cervix? I understand it to be mostly in older women, esp those who experienced birth traumas, but preventable with Kegels.

    [Reply]

  35. Love the site!
    I have a pic ready to send of my 20w+6day pregnant cervix – thanks to a photographer friend and my HB midwife!
    Please let me know how to send it to the site! I will hopefully get at least one other – later on.

    Cheers!

  36. I wish I knew about this site before I had my son. I want to see a dilating cervix so bad and would have totally been up for some cervix labor photos. Maybe next time!

    [Reply]

  37. Amazing. I found your site while searching for speculum photographs (and you can imagine what kind of pictures came up). I am a midwife of 11 years and have 2 children so I find your photographs incredible.

    [Reply]

  38. Hello, I would be interested in participating in your project. I am 26 years old and am currently 28 weeks pregnant with a cervical cerclage due to incompetent cervix. While I am not willing to photograph my cervix at the present time (due to risk of infection), I would be willing to have my cervix photographed right before my cerclage is removed. I, myself, am very curious to see what it looks like! I’m just not sure how I would go about doing this….any suggestions?

    [Reply]

  39. I am a 60 year old woman who has never given birth and 11 yrs. post-menopause. I would like to see what my cervix looks like and don’t mind sharing if it would be helpful.

  41. Hi & definitely a compliment to you – a wonderful website ! Question for you – I’m in the 2 WW to see if BFP is here. 7 DPO at the moment, too early to test, I know this. But what about CM signs? What should it look like if BFP? And what about cervix? It’s def harder now (than it was during ovulation) , is there any hints you can share? Thank you :)

    [Reply]

  42. I found your website because I am trying to conceive! I have found many books and sites that say I need to check my cervixal fluid as asll as the cervix itself; position and how it feels. People say it will feel like the tip of your nose?? Maybe it is just me but nothing feels like the tip of my nose in there! Can you advise people on how they can locate their cervix and how they know when they have actually located it? Thanks so much!!

    [Reply]

  43. Hi! I sent you an e-mail already, but I would be willing to participate! I’m 18 years old and I am interested in how my menstrual works. I am still a virgin and don’t have anything wrong with me, to the best of my knowledge anyway. Ha. :) I just thought you might need someone that’s semi-younger. Thank you for doing this! It’s absolutely fascinating! :)

  49. How do you know which size speculum to purchase? Small, medium or large?

    [Reply]

    It depends on if you’ve had children – often a large if you’ve birthed vaginally or are a woman of size. Otherwise, a small or medium will do.

My question is how would someone participate in this project; It could be valuable information since I am almost 39 years old.My Dr. told me when I was pregnant with my 2nd. child after a miscarriage that I had the cervix of a teen. Odd!!! Anyway I have also had several miscarriages not just 1. Sort of wonder how my cervix would differ from other women. Thanks again for such an informative and wonderful site :D

  53. Hi
    I’d like to participate. I’m 47. I had an early abortion at 23 and have only recently begun to chart and to attempt pregnancy. I’ve just taken my first photo on my own (was so excited when the speculum arrived I couldn’t wait for my partner to come home) and the quality is good enough to establish that I look fine and healthy. I came across your website whilst trying to learn about charting and my body. I’d be willing to offer photos and information as I continue my quest to become a mother.

  55. Thank you for this information. I have been monitoring my cervical fluid to try to conceive for three years. It is so nice to see what other people’s fluid looks like to compare the consistency and abundance with mine. Now if I could convince my husband to do our own cervical project…

  56. I was introduced to your site by my CRNP gyn. I wouldn’t mind participating. I am 35, on child, one abortion and some other things that may be of interest. This site is so educational. I would personally like to see how infections ( yeast, bv) effect the cervix. Thank you for your work. If you don’t have one, you need a Facebook page.

    [Reply]

  57. This was so insightful. Even my husband was interested and asking me questions. We’ve been ttc for 18 cycles, going into cycle 19, and when my cervix is high, I can’t feel it all. Being able to take pictures of my cervix and have something to compare it to will help I think. Hopefully we will be celevrating soon as we will be moving on to insemination next cycle. If everything goes as hoped and you don’t have a volunteer by then, I wouldn’t mind providing pictures of my cervix during labor, or at any other stage before or during pregnancy for that matter.

  61. Hi. I am 40, was without a period for 1.5 years and, after having an hormonal imbalance corrected, I am having periods again. My cycle is quite regular now, but they feel different physically. I feel more pressure and some pain. Today (I’m on day 2 of menstruation) I noticed that there seemed to be “extra” swollen flaps of skin surrounding my cervix. Is this normal?

    PS – amazing work. Thanks!

    Interesting! I don’t know anything about that – Check throughout your next cycle and see if its there again – maybe that’s just what your body does…I wonder if there is generalized inflammation in that area, causing some of the cramps…?

  62. I love your website!! Since finding this site a few years ago I have wanted to SEE my own cervix, today at my 6 wk check up I was excitedly talking to my midwife about this site and saying I wish I could see my own cervix, lol. She offered to take a picture while they were performing the exam and I jumped at the chance. This was my 6th baby, 7th pregnancy… so I’m not sure if you’re interested or not but I’d love to share if it helps another woman. :)

  63. I had a LEEP done last year and then at the begining of August this year had a Conization done. I wish I would have seen this sight then and maybe could’ve gotten some really great images! Definitely interested in photographing now and seeing what I look like on the inside! Thanks!

  64. Hello.

    I’ve always wanted to know what a cervix would look like under different circumstances and, I believe I found the right place. I am 20 years old who had a child at a young age and I have a inverted cervix. I was wondering if anyone else had one. I snapped a very good quality photo of my cervix before my cycle. It looks different.

    [Reply]

  65. Hello, I stumbled upon the site by chance and I am so glad I did. This past week I have been trying to check my cervix and at the same time I really don’t know what I’m doing. It kind of all feels the same down there. The pictures alone in the site is very helpful. My question to you is this, how do I go about getting a mirror, flashlight and speculum?

I don’t have a partner at the moment, but would certainly like to have a go at seeing if i can do it my self with the camera.

  68. Hi! I just found this website because my husband and I are trying to conceive. I think I’m a great candidate for this because I was born with two uteri and cervices. Let me know if interested!

  69. I am 44 and had a complete hysterectomy (ovaries, tubes, uterus, and cervix removed) at age 40. I am fortunate to have had a gynecologist in college who believed in allowing women to see their cervix during exams if they wanted to, and a midwife during my pregnancy who did the same — so I’m happy to say that I got to know what mine looked like before it was gone!

    I visited the “Radical Hysterectomy” page on this site just now, and noticed that many women commenting there were wondering how the vaginal canal is closed after the cervix is removed, and what it looks like in there without one. I am happy and healthy following my hysterectomy, and I would be willing to photograph myself for that page of the site, if you think that a “non-cervix cervix” picture would be appropriate. Since so many commenters mentioned it, I thought I’d offer. Please let me know. I will email you as well. Thank you for your awesome website. I love it.

  70. Hi, I was just wondering how old someone needs to be to join in your project and participate ? :) I ask because I’m 17 and have not seen any pictures on here from anyone under about 20.. But I’d love to participate if I could (: I have the implanon contraceptive implant, and thinning of my endometrial walls because of the progesterone implant causes me to bleed fairly regularly but in very short cycles. I’d be interested to see for myself how my cervix behaves over time :)

  71. Do you have any photos of an “inverted” cervix? I think that’s the term used by my Dr. today. She was having a hard time finding my cervix during my pap and discovered that is was “tilted” up or under…. I’m curious to know if anyone else has experienced this and I would love to see pics.

  72. Yes, please contact me. I have tried to respond to all women interested in participating – but, most end up not wanting to make the commitment despite their initial enthusiasm :)

    So, yes, the Project is still alive and well!!
