I have noticed that my cervix changes many times over the course of the day. Sometimes it is low, sometimes high, sometimes soft, sometimes hard, sometimes open, sometimes closed. These changes occur as little as a half-hour apart. Does this mean I have some sort of hormone imbalance? This morning, for instance, it was hard and rubbery at 9 am and soft and squishy at 10:30. What does this mean?
Welcome to ehealthforum.
Cervix position changes could be sign of pregnancy, ovulation, hormonal changes, or other problems. If it is monitored throughout the menstrual cycle to observe the changes, it is more helpful to correlate the changes. Avoid repeated examination as you can introduce infections. If you suspect abnormalities, consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for thorough examination (to confirm the cervix position and appearance). Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet.
