Hi there! Board-certified obgyn here.

Your cervix is located high up at the top of the vagina (which is a long canal, about 8 cm or so long). It would be really hard to see it unless something was wrong. It is possible to feel it though - feels like a smooth nub all the way up at the top of the vagina.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
