Hi VP'ers,
I've been lurking for quite some time, but this is the first time I've posted a medical issue.

Today I slid a finger all the way up inside me for the first time in a long while. I noticed that my cervix (and uterus) has dropped slightly. Not as high up as it used to be. And the texture of my cervix feels bumpy not smooth. I am very worried now, until I can get in to my gyno next week. What could this be? I have no bleeding or pain outside of the regular mentral cycle. I had an internal exam last year which was normal. HPV test negative. No abnormal cells were found in that last exam. I am 40 years old. Married 8 years. Husband and I use only condoms as bc. I am ovulating right now, could this be what is the problem?
Thank you! And I am very worried about if this is cancer?

    First of all, don’t panic.
    I’m no expert on this, but I’ve definitely read that the cervix moves up and down and changes texture through your cycle. Especially arounnd ovulation time. Just a random link found on google : http://www.babycenter.com/404_how-do-i-check-my-cervix-for-signs-of-ovulation_1336330.bc

    Thank you!!! And thanks for the link. I had no idea about the cervix softening up that noticeably during ovulation and shifting position like that. I also realized I’ve never felt my cervix during ovulation before.
    The bumps on my cervix however are still worrysome, as they are big. I’m due for my gyno check up anyway, so I will be glad to get it checked out.
    Thanks again for your reply!

    You cervix goes higher and lower during your cycle and the texture can also change a bit. Here is a gallery of pictures of a cervix (NSFW) which might reassure you.

    Yup, your cervix moves depending on your cycle. Which makes me think that hormonal fluctuations that occur with age and such could also make it move around a bit.

    I’m not sure about the bumpiness. Is it lumpy, or more like roughly textured? Lumpy is fairly normal too, and it may be that you have a nabothian cyst or even a few, which are totally harmless.
