Women sometimes report symptoms resulting from Cervical conditions, but in many cases, there are no immediate symptoms. The cervix is very difficult to view without a gynecologist’s tools so it’s essential to routinely visit your gynecologist to check the health of your cervix. A number of the common conditions that affect the cervix are:
The cervix is a small, doughnut-shaped organ located at the top of the vaginal canal, and forming the opening of the uterus. During childbirth, the cervix dilates – meaning the doughnut hole opens up – to allow the baby to exit the uterus, into the birth canal. The cervix also dilates a tiny bit during menstruation, to allow a woman to shed her uterine lining as period blood.
If you are suffering from a cervical condition or have any questions about them, please talk to your doctor.
