Age 20 – Day 7

Day 7

This woman is 20 years old and recently chose to discontinue using hormonal birth control and take charge of her fertility by using a diaphragm to understand her natural cycles.

She is in a monogamous relationship with her boyfriend of 2 years. She has never been pregnant, had any STIs, or abnormal paps.

She says, “I came across your website in error and found it amazing. I find everything about being a woman fascinating and felt compelled to participate.  Today I experimented with the speculum and taking the photos. Once I saw what is really hidden in there I was amazed!”

    That’s because in order to take a picture of the cervix you use a speculum- which obviously distorts a bit the “natural” state of a cervix.

  3. In menstration is the cervix high,soft and very open? Or is the in early pregnancy? My cervix is HSO with only brown blood and flecs of dark red during expected period.

    I think this varies for everyone. My cervix is just a little bit open throughout most of my cycle – not quite midway, but definitely not fully closed either. It is very closed a few days before my period, but opens back to a medium-medium open state and becomes soft and low just before my period arrives and generally stays low throughout my period.

    Hi there. I understand your concern/worry. It is important to go to a gynecologist to help care for/educate/track your reproductive health, especially if you are sexually active or having abnormal symptoms during your menstrual cycle. The first time doing anything can be strange. Most women don’t experience going to the gynocologist as painful – the speculum exam is often just uncomfortable, though every woman has a different experience. It helps to breathe deeply and relax your muscles. Perhaps there is a gynocologist that a friend could recommend – or you could request a female one if you feel more comfortable with that — practitioners often very sensitive if you tell them its your first visit – ask them to use a small speculum and talk you through what they are doing and why. Perhaps there is a planned parenthood or other community health clinic near you that specializes in the reproductive health of young women. Good luck and good job taking care of yourself!

  5. What is the white fluid in there? is it seamen?

    beautifulcervix Reply:

    No. Its cervical mucous and/or cells from the vaginal wall – its normal discharge.

  6. are those whitish things fats all around? If i didnt notice

    beautifulcervix Reply:

    No, the whitish fluid is infertile cervical fluid mixed with vaginal wall cell slough (old dead cells that come off the vaginal walls in a healthy vagina).

  7. I just turned 22, and I also just got married. I’ve never had intercourse until 5 months ago, and I’ve never gone for a PAP smear. I’m taking birth control, so I understand that it would be important to see if it’s working, and getting a PAP smear is the only way to check that, but I feel pushed into this. I know it’s important to take care of my health, but I am a very healthy individual. There are some reports I’ve read that say that an individual does not need to go for a PAP within the first three years of intercourse. I’d love to hear your thoughts on this. I’m not really sure what to do- numerous people have mentioned that this is a painful procedure and my body is very sensitive to touch. What should I do?

  8. Hi! I’m 16 and was just feeling around when I noticed my cervix sorta has like a bumpy feeling on the outside round part of it. I’ve been off my period for about a week. Is this normal??

  9. First of all, I’m a male. I came across this site because some girls at work were talking about their cervix and I googled it to find out what the big deal was.

    I find this really interesting, please note I’m not here for any perverted reason.

    I’m just curious though, during sex do our penis’s penetrate it or is that what we feel when we go too deep?

    Another question, is the cervix the main part that woman worry about medically?

    Wel, woman have alot to worry about, I never realised this.

    Rachel Reply:

    No, your penis does not penetrate this. This is the opening to our uterus. Your penis never goes into the uterus.

    And I wouldn’t say it’s the “main part” we worry about medically– we worry about everything in and around there!

  10. I find these pix very helpful. I have an annual “smear” coming up in just a few days actually.& I’m like the other ladies, I’ve always wandered what my cervix, uterus,walls,etc. look like..I have a question that I’m hoping SOMEONE on here would B able ro answer for me…I was on Depo for about 2-years.(I’ll never take it again,bc those shots R stout. It took my body 8/9 full months to get back to normal after I stopped them)…So I am on my menstrual cycle now. (This is only my 3rd one since I stopped DEPO)…My last cycle was Dec.15th -Dec.19 and I started the next menstrual cycle again Jan.8th. Im on day7(although I’m thinking I’m finally gonna stop. SURE HOPE SO…) But I cannot recall ever having a period for 7days straight. QUESTION: Why would I start again so soon when I just got off my last period on Dec.19? I hope someone can answer this Bc I’m really starting to worry about this, I don’t know why I had these last two cycles so close together…..TY (in advance)..hopefully someone can help me out. ;)
