Ovulation/Cervix Question

Here is a really odd question.

If my cervix feels "open" does this mean that I am ovulating?

If you have checked your cervix before, is there a defined difference between an open & closed cervix?

yes it generally does, if you are ttc, then you need to have sex sister! When it is open and soft you are getting super close to O or you are O'ing!

good luck!

should have read the whole thing, yes there is a difference! Check it again in about 3 days and you will notice. Some women there isn't much of a difference with others there is a HUGE difference! I can always tell when I am O'ing that way!

There is a great book on the market, called "Taking Charge of your Own Fertility"......and it is a super book that will tell you all the natural signs of ovulation, etc.

However, I will tell you the short version. It says to look for these signs, which form the word "SHOW" Each letter represents the following:

S = soft
H = high
O = open
W = wet

You will know you are ovulating when your cervix is really deep inside (high), when it is soft and squishy to the touch (almost like a squishy sponge) and when the opening feels very open (not as much as a fingertip, but almost), and when it is quite wet. By wet, I mean that after checking your cervix, when you pull your fingers out, you should be able to separate your fingers as far as they will go and the mucous on them will stretch, stretch, stretch and not break. It will be clear and have the consistency of a raw egg white.

Hope this helps.

Here is a site about cervical observation.


I liked it because of the pictures. It helped me to "picture" what I was feeling for.
