I'm a a bit of a newbie when it comes to cervical position. I've made some visuals to understand if I have this down or if I'm completely in the wrong. Here's a little album. http://imgur.com/a/9PemJ

I think I have a downward-facing cervix? Are my interpretations right? Also... I've read and heard that the position of your cervix changes throughout your cycle. But does that only include "height"? As in low, medium or high cervix. Does the cervix ever tilt differently throughout your cycle? For example... Today my cervix is tilted downwards as in the third picture, can it tilt like number one another day in my cycle? If that holds true (I have no clue and I've tried googling), does your cervix ever tilt more to the left, the right or to the middle (straight)? I'm welcoming anecdotes and actual articles/forum discussions or something similar. Thanks!

I'm no expert on cervixes so I can't tell you if you're completely correct or wrong, but I want to share a site you might find helpful :)
It has photos of cervixes including some photo journals of every day of the menstrual cycle. You'll see that the way the cervix points can move around a bit as well a the cervix changing heights throughout the cycle. Obviously don't go to this site if you are squeamish about seeing photos of inside the female body or bodily fluids.

eta: b/c I didn't see the rest of your post.
I think a lot of cervixes tend to point in one direction or another (not be perfectly straight) during the more infertile parts of the cycle when it is lower down the vagina. As the cervix get higher around ovulation it usually straightens out a bit more.

It doesn't matter which way it points as long as your cup sits (O) around it.

And the problem with your drawing and the many videos that use champagne flutes is that they are rigid. Your REAL anatomy is more like a sock -- flexible and slightly stretchy. Another point is that your cervix isn't at the "top" of your vagina, just like your face isn't at the top of your head.

My cervix always tilts either right, left, or back. Once I figured this out it made my whole cup experience much easier. I just have to check which way it's facing that day before I insert and aim it that way. I get a perfect seal every time now
