Hey bees! I’ve been experiencing a bit of discomfort during/ after sex that tends to last for a couple of days. It’s a dull pain in my uterus area and is a bit uncomfortable. I’m starting to think I may just have a low cervix?? There are definitely times during intercourse where it feels like he’s hitting the end. Any advice/tips? It sucks when something that’s supposed to be enjoyable hurts.

So there’s an easy way to check for a low cervix. Literally just stick your finger up there and see if you can feel it easily! I’d imagine that a low cervix would cause the discomfort you’re describing but I’m not sure. If in doubt check with your gynecologist! I’m sure they can help!

Does is happen all the time or just certain times of the month? Cervical position (high and low) changes throughout your cycle depending on your fertility.

I have a low cervix – give yourself plenty of warm up time and that will help. Also tell him to ease up if he’s hitting your cervix! If it is hurting for days after he must really be slamming it!

your cervix should naturally move back as you are more aroused–your body makes room. (I can typically feel my cervix with my fingers, and they are.. oh.. 3-4 inches long? I’ve had partners and sex toys that were much longer than that…)
As LilliV said–warm up time. If he can help you orgasm before penetration, thats both wonderfully enjoyable and I find I orgasm more easily the second time than the first anyway, so you’re more likely to orgasm while he’s in you.. something my DH and past partners were for the most part pretty in to.

Thank you all for your help! I ended up seeing my midwife for a well check and she said she noticed that my cervix was definitely “down & back”!
