tight cervix?---UPDATE

UPDATED at bottom::

Anyone ever hear of this??
I just went to the gyno for my Annual and I told him that DH and I are starting to TTC#2 so while doing the exam he says to me {did u have any issues getting prego with ur 1st child - I had used a different practice for my 1st, No I say then he asked do you experience a lot of pain when you get your period I again say no nothing that bothers me, He then said Your cervix is very tight and that he wants to "open" it to increase my chances of conceiving.. I don't know what he did but I know it hurt lol...
It all went so fast I really didn't get a chance to ask him what this means or what he did but now that im home I keep thinking about it;.. Has anyone ever heard of this?????

I know me either.. its very odd.. im not to sure what he did to me but he apparently opened my cervix alittle more Chat Icon I guess we shall see if it helps..
I personally think I did not need it but he had a student training with him and I think he used this as a lessons for the student... I don't really know though I could be wrong...

tight cervix?

That's very strange. Isn't it meant to be closed until it opens itself??

yes please do. I am almost positive he said my cervix is very tight and that by opening it will help increase my chances of getting prego.
he asked if I have ever had cervix surgery or painful menstrual cycles to witch I answered no lol.. im not to sure on what he did he did not explain it all that well the whole thing happen so fast so maybe im getting it wrong please ask at ur office what he could of done :) Thanks so much

Re: tight cervix?

Your cervix changes throughout your cycle- opens and closes by itself lol he cannot manually open it. This is making me nervous.

Re: tight cervix?

So they called me back and said that the dr dilated my cervix alittle. that the opening was on the small side and since this week I should be ovulating that sometimes dilating ur cervix and help with conceiving...
She said that there was no harm in trying it and that it would only increases not decrees my chances of conceiving.. I guess we will see in a couple of weeks lol...

Re: tight cervix?

Well at least you got an explanation...Still seems a bit odd to me but if it increases your changes I guess why not?

I am glad you got an answer. I would make it a point to ask for a thorough explanation in the future if you're ever unsure - don't just let the doctor do something unless you're comfortable with it.

And maybe find a new practice, too!

This whole thing makes me very uncomfortable and unhappy for you. May I ask who your OBGYN is? The fact that he had a student training with him and used you as his guinea pig bothers me too. Sorry, I'm just a bit disturbed by this altogether!
