Normal Condition Of The Cervix?
I want to ask, I once checked my cervix, why is the cervix the length of the fingers and at the end of it is like a small uterine hole. Normally, the cervix is like a donut, its shape is actually long.
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Need to be clarified, in what way do you examine your cervix? Did you do this examination alone or with the help of medical personnel?
The cervix (cervix) is located deep in the vagina. In adult women, the average distance from the cervix to the vaginal lips is around 7 to 15 cm. Therefore, it is not easy to check the cervix only with extraordinary examinations, especially if done by ordinary people. To examine the cervix, you need to see yourself directly to the doctor. With special tools, such as speculum (cocor duck) or may also involve supporting examinations, such as ultrasound or HSG, new doctors can explore the condition of the cervix in more depth.
The cervix connects the portion (opening of the uterus) with the body of the uterus. Grossly, the cervix is shaped like a tube that is coated by a mucous layer on the inside and serosa on the outside. The cervix is connected directly to the portion (opening of the uterus) which opens towards the vagina. There are many abnormalities that can occur in the cervix, including inflammation (cervicitis) to malignancy (cervical cancer).
If you are worried that there is an abnormality in your cervix, do not hesitate to go directly to a doctor or obstetrician to be evaluated more deeply, ok?
I hope this helps.
