5 Magical Facts about Your Cervix that No One Taught You

The cervix is the lower portion of the uterus.  It connects the vagina to the main body of the uterus, acting as a gateway between them. Anatomically, the cervix is distinct from the uterus, and hence we consider it as a separate anatomical structure. Let’s take a look at a few more facts about your cervix.

5 Secrets that Every Cervix on This Planet Has

1. The Cervix is a Gatekeeper

The cervix produces mucus that acts as nature’s gate. Cervical mucus is functionally important. It lines the cervix, vagina, and vulva, creating a protective barrier between your body and the environment. The mucus helps to foster healthy bacteria, protects you from pathogens, helps the sperm reach the reproductive tract, and even signaling disease and pregnancy. 

An example of the mucus from your Cervix under a microscopic lens. The “ferning” shape happens before you ovulate while they disappear after your ovulation 

A parody online question we find is “Can my infant daughter in my wife’s stomach get pregnant if I have sex with my wife when she is pregnant”. The reason the sperm doesn’t enter is the mucus gets really thick. The mucus is really the barrier between the outside world & the growing fetus. There is no more skin, there are no more barriers. 

This marvelous substance is really divine and it comes from your cervix. 

2. The Cervix Plays a Role in Your Periods 

Your cervix is typically open during menstruation, which allows menstrual blood and uterine tissue to leave your body. The cervix is usually lower in the body and therefore easier to feel while you’re menstruating. During the follicular phase of your periods (Day 1 that you bleed), estrogen levels are low and hence your Cervix feels firmer. During Ovulation, your estrogen levels start to rise and the cervix starts shedding more mucus.

3. The Cervix Witnesses It All & Stores Your Emotions 

The cervix has witnessed everything that has penetrated you. She is a strong muscle that not only does an important job for your healthy functioning but also stores emotions. This strong muscular tissue is like a record book for your vaginal emotions. Whether that is sexual frustration, anger, sexual violence, traumatic childbirth, or similar, the cervix not only sees it but feels it too.

4. The Cervix Carries the Placenta and the Baby & Opens Up When Giving Birth 

The cervix opens herself, depletes herself up to 10 cm to help the baby come out of your body, and then gets back to her normal shape. The cervix is a strong muscle that stores all the amniotic fluid, the placenta, and the baby. This beautiful muscle in your body makes it possible for you to carry your baby and eventually give birth.
