So are you feeling your cervix or something else in the vagina?

Is something else is it on the floor, roof, or side wall of the vagina?

Any leaking urine when you cough, laugh, squat?

i can feel my cervix. its just like the whole inside of my feels like the pressyre of when your about to push a baby out but not as much pressure, maybe like i need to push out an apple.i have no leakage
Expert:  Dr. Kala replied 6 years ago.
You are probably feeling the vaginal walls which become redundant after several deliveries. However it is also possible that you may also have a cystocele or rectocele, both of these are out pouching of the vaginal tissue due to the stretching and pressure. Neither of these are dangerous to your health but may make it difficult to empty our bladder (cystocele) or rectum (rectocele) completely. A pelvic exam by a gynecologist is indicated to determine the nature of out pouching.
