What does this mean, usually?



I tried googling it but have come up with different answers.



It is day 27 of my cycle and if this one proves to be a normal cycle (unlikely) I should get my period on day 36 or 37.

Open is usually when your on your period. Soft and low, for me, was around the time I would ovulate.

Your cervix is usually soft and open around the time you ovulate.

Your Cervix goes through cycles everyones is diffrent but basically its like this during your period it is low firm and slightly open after which it is low firm and closed, rises to High Soft and Open during Ovulation than returns to low firm and closed until your period starts again.

However it is important to note that if your cervix also rises and falls through out the day and if you check it at diffrent times you could be mistaken at where you cervix is at , also your cervix postion is not a good indicator of pregnancy only for ovulation.

This is from Fertility Friend:




  • Low: Record "low" for your least fertile cervical position. This is the position where it is easiest to feel and reach your cervix.

  • Medium: Record "medium" for the position between your lowest and highest.

  • High: Record "high" when your cervix is hardest to reach. You may not even be able to reach it. You will notice that it feels more wet, soft and open at this time as well. This is your most fertile cervical position.



  • Firm: Record "firm" as the most hard and firm texture you experience throughout your cycle. Your cervix will likely also be low and quite easy to reach at this time.

  • Medium: Record "medium" when your cervix feels between your most firm and most soft. You may feel this just before you approach your more fertile time before ovulation and after ovulation as well.

  • Soft: Record "soft" when your cervix feels the most soft. It will probably feel quite wet and high at this time as well and you may even notice that it also feels open. It may be hard to reach. This is your most fertile cervical texture.

So, I should check it tonight, too then? I just find it strange that my cervix is so low. It was very easy to reach. I had some very light spotting a few days ago. I know this cycle is going to be whacky but I'd kind of like an indicator of what's going on. lol.

If your going to start checking and recording your cervix make sure you do it at the same time every day.
And very low is not uncommon, it just means right now you are not fertile.
