How does your cervix feel during your period?


During a menstrual period, the cervix is in a low position, hard and slightly open. At this point of the menstrual cycle, the cervix is described as feeling similar to the tip of a nose.

According to WebMD, the position of the cervix can be used to determine where a woman is at in her menstrual cycle. The position and firmness changes depending on whether a woman is menstruating, ovulating or pregnant.

To check the cervix, insert two clean fingers into the vagina and push until the cervix can be felt. Many women find that it is easier to feel the cervix when they are in a squatting position. It can take some time for a woman to recognize if her cervix is high or low. Regularly checking the cervix gives a woman a benchmark to compare her cervical position against.
