Why can I feel my cervix so low?

As you approach ovulation and at the height of ovulation, the cervix moves up to its highest position. It may move so high that it's hard to reach or can't be found. As you near your period, the cervix drops lower. This can happen immediately after ovulation or may take several days, even a few days into your period.

How do you know your cervix is low?

Insert one or two fingers into the vagina and feel for the cervix. If you can reach the cervix at just your first knuckle, your cervix is low. If you can reach it at the second knuckle of your finger, your cervix is a normal height.

How should cervix feel right before period?

Cervix position before period: your cervix is low and hard. When your period starts, it will open slightly to let blood out. Once your period finishes, it stays low but closes up until you ovulate again.

A soft cervix is usually nothing to worry about. In fact, your cervix naturally gets softer during ovulation. It also gets softer as a pregnancy progresses. However, if you're pregnant, a soft cervix when you're not close to full term can raise your risk of preterm labor.
