Where the hell is my cervix?! o.O hobbit* 3 kids; New Zealand 44783 posts

Ok.
I'm trying to track ovulation etc but when I feel for my cervix I can feel something hard, and soft. Which one is it??
This probably doesn't help anyone because it would depend where I am in my cycle right? Yep thought so :-/
Does anyone have helpful links that can explain this for me? I read ages ago that because I've already had children my cervix will always be a bit open. Yes?

It's kinda hard because not only does it depend on where in your cycle you are, but each woman is different too.



This is a neat site with graphic photos: http://www.beautifulcervix.com/cervix-photo-galleries/photos-of-cervix/



And yes, since you had a child, your cervix will always be a little bit open.

If you reach up until you hit the back of your vagina and swirl your finger around the walls, you should feel what feels like a fleshy tunnel, that's your cervix.

Lol I dunno if this will help you.... But it always felt like a donut to me. That helped me distinguish exactly if I was or wasn't actually touching it. And ya it will always be a bit open.

Wow that's crazy lol.
Ok I think I know what to look for now. When I can feel both hard and soft, looks like the soft/squishy is the vaginal walls!

Another tmi Q if anyone knows..
When checking for fluid a few days ago, I felt around to get it close to the cervix. There was nothing on my finger but I could feel a substance in there, so this would just be 'wet' fluid, not ewcm or creamy obviously? It definitely didn't feel dry
