Hey y'all,

I would just like to thank everyone that replied to my previous post and ask a follow up question. When I was looking for my cervix, I don't really know if what I found was it or not. Everywhere I read said it would feel like a little round nub and be circular.

What I found was just like a wall, except when you touched it it was large and felt like jellied cranberry sauce (if you don't know what that is, look up a pic; i'm sorry if this is tmi). And when I touched it, it moved deep in me, it didn't hurt, but it didn't feel good or anything. Near it I found my pubic bone.

I just need to know if what I found was my cervix or not that way I can choose a good menstrual cup for my first time.

Thanks in advance!

P.S.
Sorry, I am new to all of this. I have never been intimately familiar with myself or sexually active or anything, so I am in need of a lot of educating about this whole subject.

Welcome!

If it moved appreciably when you touched it, I bet it was your cervix--particularly if you felt something further up in your belly when you touched it (that would be your uterus). Jellied cranberry sauce, lol! I always compared it to a wet nose. I also don't like cranberries though (unless they are liquefied and in a martini glass with vodka)

Next step is to take note of how much of your finger you could fit up there before you found your cervix. That's the total cup length (body plus stem) you'll be aiming for. If you could fit, say, a whole finger inside before reaching it, you probably have a high cervix and will want to look at longer body+stem combinations like the Diva, Si-Bell, CupLee, etc. If it's less than a finger, take note of the length of finger that fit and measure accordingly :)

If you haven't already, skim/read http://kuradi8.livejournal.com/ and follow the links. Make your last stop the link to the guidelines and size charts.

From your description, it sounds like you may have felt the front wall of your vagina. The end of the cervix has more of a fleshy nub feeling to it.

I agree. You should be able to feel your cervix near the end of your vaginal canal, not close to your pubic bone. And cranberry gel sounds a little too soft...more like your vaginal wall.

Aim back towards your tailbone, not up, and your finger will just glide in
