Have You Seen Your Cervix Lately?
The cervix is the part of the female anatomy that links the vagina to the uterus. It’s the deep spot of your vagina. You know that pain you sometimes feel in your lower abdomen during sex with someone with a rather long cock or in sexual positions that allow for deeper penetration? Well, that’s your cervix being hit in a not so good kind of way. I have read that the cervix can be an erogenous zone, but the information I have on that is pretty slim at the moment.
The lower part of the cervix descends into the vagina while the upper part is hidden from view in the lower part of the uterus and it looks a little something like this:
My friend Jess remarked on how it kind of looks like the head of a penis, but that’ll be a topic for another day. Right now, let’s get back to your cervix. Have you ever looked at your own, because apparently you can? Sure, you’ve all heard about the whole “look at your vagina” shtick, but if you really want to have your mind blown, I suggest you buy yourself a nice little plastic speculum and get comfy in front of a mirror. Make sure to have a flashlight handy. For step-by-step instructions check out this link here.
Not only is the cervix an interesting part of your body that usually goes relatively unnoticed except by your gyno, but getting to know your cervix is actually pretty helpful. If you familiarize yourself with the way it looks, how that changes (it descends and gets harder when you’re menstruating), and the mucus that is found around it you can learn a hell of a whole lot about the cycles of your body. For instance, if you want to find out whether or not you’re ovulating all you need to do is stick a finger in your vagina and go looking for your cervix. If it’s higher up and softer than usual, that’s usually a good sign if you are trying to get pregnant.
I’d be really interested in knowing if anybody has tried this before. If you have or find the idea interesting, leave a comment.
