Re: How far up is the cervix?

  • I know this question seems nuts but what is your DH is well endowed?

  • Even when your cervix is "open" during your fertile window, it is only open a centimeter or 2. 

    JFC learn a little about your own body.  





  • Huh? No. Penises can not go into the uterus. Neither can turkey basters. People use turkey basters as an alternative to sex, not as a form of IUI.

  • The cervix has a fairly tight opening and kind of moves around to accommodate things, so no, it's not likely that a guy, even if he's super well-endowed, would actually push through into the ute.  You would know it if he did, because it would really hurt and you'd tell him to stop if he managed it!  But the cervix is almost always within reach of a finger, your vagina is usally around middle finger length from opening to cervix.  Sometimes, depending on where you are in your cycle or time of day, it can be lower or higher, but it's not just sitting there waiting to be opened by a peen, your vaginal wall actually stretches to make the room for it not your cervix.

    So how far up is the cervix? When you have sex can a guy penetrate the cervix and get up into the uterus? I'm only asking b/c my Dr. was talking about IUI if if 6 more months we are unsuccessful in TTC. I always hear people talk about the "tukey baster" method, and wondered if people actually do that.

    It's so that anyone checking this thread won't have to go to the many pages long FFFC to find and try to answer it.  You already made a thread, why not just leave it here?

    No that is me. What I meant to ask was could a guy who is well endowed enter the cervix and get into the uterus. After reading more I'm seeing that is no.

  • Ah, my husband is packing below the belt and sometimes I get minor light bleeding and it feels like hes hit something and I was told by my dr. that most likley it's from the cervix being irritated. Not everyones cervix is positioned the same either ;)

    Yeah, but you know how you can find out how far up it is?  Stick your finger up there!  Read a FF tutorial.  OP has 2 kids, you'd think she'd felt her own cervix at this point.  Or thought about how it fells to dilate to 10 cm when you give birth.

    Maybe I'm just angry today, but this question is just nutty in my mind.

    I have two kids and both were c-sec b/c after 12 hrs of labor they wouldn't come out! So yes, I did dilate but they never came out that way.

  • I'm not defending OP, but remember, just because someone has had kids doesn't mean they know what's going on.

  • I'll admit that when I'm checking for my CP, I can't ever feel it. Ever. I've stuck my middle finer in as far as it goes and I've never found it. So I gave up trying. I tried squatting, putting one leg on the toliet, stand straight. I am the worst at checking CP.

    I'd never felt my cervix before TTC, and I have a vaginally-born child.  Until I found this site, and through googling and finding the site beautiful cervix project, I didn't have the foggiest idea of what my cervix was even like.  That site, and the helpful ladies here, was how I learned how to find it for checking CM/CP, before I had no clue.
