An open cervix refers to the internal os and the amount of dilatation. So if it is 1 cm or more it is considered opened. This can be dangerous in preterm pregnancies. Also women who have had several vaginal deliveries will find their cervices to be opened to 2 cm in the last month of the pregnancy, this is considered normal for them.

Hope this is clear, if not let me know.
