Doctor's Assistant: When was your last pap smear? Have you ever had an irregular pap?

It was last year I have never had a irregular one

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

When was your last period and did you have any discomfort when touching the cervix (any pain that you felt)?

Customer reply replied 2 months ago
My last one was the 3rd week of Nov. I have had some sharp pains this last week thinking it was just me ovulating. It is a little tender but not horrible.
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 2 months ago

Generally, the reason the cervix would decent and hang a bit lower would be if you are ovulating or if you are on your period. What happens then is the cervix gets a bit more engorged and can present lower in the vaginal canal.

Otherwise there shouldn't be any serious reason for you to be able to feel it. It is normally the width of a thumb if you haven't had a child and it is normally 3-6 inches inside the vaginal opening.

Okay I have had one child. Does it stay like that till me period comes and till its over?
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 2 months ago

That's correct. It would stay like that until you have your period.
