This month i decided to check my cervix. I'm new to this but today is day 28 of my cycle and my cervix is high and a little soft. Compared to 2 days ago it was hard and low. When you are about to get your period is your cervix normally high?
I started trying to check my cervix a couple of months ago, but then stopped because it is very common for your cervix to change positions a lot during any given day.
I had read to just check it at the same time each day but at night, it always felt open and then during the day, it always felt closed. It's just not a very reliable thing for fertility or early pregnancy.
As far as how to check it....It is best probably to Google this. That will be able to better tell you correctly how to do it. You basically either sit or stand with one leg up on something and then insert your fingers inside you and go straight up. I didn't know if I would know what I was feeling when I first started. I didn't even know what to look for really, but after doing it a few times, I realized what it was; especially when it was low.
Your cervix will feel rubbery kind of. It kind of feels like the tip of your nose. Oh, and ALWAYS make sure you have clean hands to avoid the risk of infection.
But as I said, I don't recommend this as it is not very accurate or reliable.
