I can’t reach my cervix. How should I record this?
When you are at your most fertile, the cervix is at its highest point at the top of the vagina. For some women, this means that they can no longer reach it. If you have easily felt your cervix in the past, but now it’s ‘disappeared’, it’s likely that you are very fertile so record your cervix as high, open, soft.
If this is the first time that you have tried to find your cervix, keep trying over the next few days, particularly when you notice that your fertile cervical fluid has dried up. Once you are no longer fertile, your cervix will be lower in the vagina and easier to find.
