Question: Small cervix and uterus
|taldrich - Fri Sep 30, 2005 3:27 pm||
I was recently told by my doctor that I have an extremley small cervix and a small uterus. I was wondering if this could be of concern when I try to get pregnant. Could this enable me from becoming pregnant or cause problems if I were to become pregnant?
Any responses will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

With all due respect, what did he compare your sizes against? If you are small to begin with, then all is relative. If you are concerned about the size of your cervix and childbirth then consult a obstetrician/gynecologist for an expert opinion. Short of an abdominal ultrasound, your doctor cannot determine the size of your uterus and isn't likely to be able to say that your cervix is less than normal size. Did he or she do a pap smear and not be able to enter your cervix with the cytobrush?
