Many women try to feel
whether they are pregnant or not by considering the position of the
their cervices. Its a curious method but the cervical position of a
woman tends to change while a woman is pregnant.
The position of the cervix from the
very onset of ovulation change its nature and position. During the
ovulation period, the cervix moves down towards the vagina more.
After implantation it again moves to its initiation position. In its
initial stage, it remains tough and rigid, but after the
fertilization of the ova, the cervix slowly starts to grow loose and
flexible. However, the position may or may not be sensitive for every
woman and the positional shift also varies from case to case.
While the baby
develops inside the uterus, the cervix also tends to get prepared for
delivery of the baby from the womb. This opening and stretch of the
cervix is also known as cervical dilation. While the baby develops
inside the womb, the uterine contractions cause the cervix to open by
six centimeters, and during the time of labor or delivery the
pressure from the existing baby coming out and the uterine
contraction together cause the cervix to dilate unto ten centimeters.
This is called the complete dilation of cervix.
Now how do woman try to find out from
there cervical positions about their state of pregnancy? Whatever may
be the way, the procedure is not clinically proved method. The best
thing to confirm pregnancy would be to undergo tests meant for
detecting pregnancy by a doctor or by yourself. Since, the position
of the cervix can never confirm the status of your pregnancy, and the
position of it cannot be sensed properly, any movement inside the
vagina may not indicate the movement of the cervix.
