Welcome!

The Beautiful Cervix Project is a grassroots movement celebrating the beauty and intricacies of women’s bodies and fertility.  This website provides accessible information about women’s fertility and menstrual cycles and showcases photographs documenting changes in the cervix and cervical fluid throughout the cycle.

The Beautiful Cervix Project encourages women to learn cervical self-exam and fertility awareness as a revolutionary path of promoting respect, confidence, and health.  We believe that this form of self-empowerment and education will help contradict shame and misinformation around women’s reproductive health and choices, affecting positive change from the personal to global levels.

We hope The Beautiful Cervix Project inspires our readers’ curiosity to observe and appreciate what is normal for each one of us as we track the subtle changes in our bodies throughout our cycles.

People have used this information for many purposes, including to realize the normalcy of their body’s cyclical changes, to celebrate their bodies, to achieve or avoid pregnancy, to understand their partners more, to further their study of medicine and health, and to promote healing through cervix-inspired art.  Whatever path lead you here, welcome!

  1. My cycles have always been irregular and I was sexually active the whole month of November with my boyfriend….
    ( protective sex) Now since the end of November I’ve been having a white milky odorless vaginal discharge…. If this truly could have a sign of early pregnancy his is that possible…. I barely have a cycle and I haven’t had a kid since 2002 so how is it now…. I can’t even tell you the last time I have a full cycle…. I spot a day in October but after that nothing and before that nothing in over a year…. Somebody anybody plz tell me what you think…. I don’t have a STD I went for checked cuz the discharge scared me I’ve never had this before….. Plz someone give me insight on what you think it is…. Thanks and Be Blessed….. Oh and Merry Christmas….

  3. I’m [ hopefully ) 5 weeks 4 days pregnant … My cervix is extremely high and it feels swollen closed … Its alot of discharge and today it’s been white but yesterday it was clear … is this normal ? Im sure I’m pregnant , I mean I haven’t had a positive test but I assume its because I tested to early . But could my cervix , various non-smelling , not itching , not burning discharge and VERY obvious &&’ quite annoying [ to me at least ) pregnancy symptoms be telling me I’m definitely pregnant ?? That’s my assumption but can you please help me verify ? I need a opinion until I can get another test … Btw Im 16 .

  5. hi,
    i am 16 years of age, well i was on my uh lets call it mother natures greeting! i wanted to check if it was over because it had been a few days so i put my finger inside and as i was maybe a inch or so deep i felt a hard bump with what seems like a opening almost like the vagina lips, is this normal? i have scheduled a pap test, i would bring it up with the doc at the appt but i am uncomfortable asking a male doctor.

    If anyone has feed back preferably woman who have had kids and can understand the confusion of a 16 year old.

    Thanks !

    Hi Ann,
    That would be your cervix. ;) That’s normal. I’m a mother of 4, they’re younger than you, but I’m quite a bit older and have a good bit of body knowledge behind me. Have a great day!

    Hi Anne,

    Sounds like you are feeling your cervix. Generally speaking, your cervix lowers before/during your menstrual cycle, so you shouldn’t be alarmed. If you are still worried ask your obgyn!

    Hope this helps :)

    I advise you to find a female doctor. It makes a world of difference to be able to talk openly about your feminine health. And yes, that’s normal during aunt flo

  7. i think this site is amazing! its amazing that we grow up not really being taught or edged towards taking notice of our bodies. things like this should be taught in science at later stages of school!

  11. Hi, I am soon to be 28 and had my first child vaginal 7 months ago. I check myself quit often for various reasons. I have recently noticed that I have been bloated majorily in the lower abdominal area right around where the uterus sits. Now I have had 2 periods since but they have been rather un-normal for me (either just clots and stops for a day then the river flow then stops for a day etc) I have noticed the past 2x I have checked myself that my cervix has been 1cm to now 2cm should I worry or what could this be? Im stunned as to what It may be I havent taken 1 Pregnancy test and it was a negative but I almost feel like my body is saying that its wrong. For a month I have felt like fetal movement and very defined as I can feel it internally as well as external and sometimes can see it as well. Please help if you can…..Thanks

  19. Hi,
    I’m a 27 year old woman and I am currently trying to become pregnant. I’ve recently had a gynecologist visit because I still have irregular periods a year off of the pill. My doctor told me during the visit that I had a wide cervix and was surprised that I had not had any children before. I was wondering if this normal? I feel really insulted/embarrassed/hurt because of it and I’m not even sure I should feel this way. I had never really thought about my cervix before. I feel a little ashamed and freak like now. Does this mean that I’m “loose”? I’m 5’8 and have a hippy/curvy build, could I just be made this way? What is “normal” for a cervix? I would love to hear opinions or info on the subject. I want to be comfortable and accepting of my body, but I don’t really know anything about cervix normality..

    Some women who have never given birth have a slit-shaped cervix. It doesn’t mean anything about your sexuality/sexual habits. Just a variation of normal – no worries!
