Okay, i was spotting a little, on my doctor's visit he said that it was from my cervix. That maybe it was from too much intercourse. which i knew wasn't true cuz i just got over mono and my poor husband was lucky if he got any once a week!

Anyways, i was looking at a picture of the female anatomy, the cervix looks far enough up there, could it really be from sex?

Absolutely. Your cervix moves position throughout yoru cycles. during ovulation it is very high, high enough that some people can't find it. If you do not get pregnant it moves down and by the time AF is ready to come it can be low enough it seems like it will fall out.lol

Did he do a pap? Or did he look at all? I have my book open to pages 96 (because it's all about observing your cervix) and page 224-227 (because it talks about abnormal bleeding and then "normal" nabothian cysts on the cervix. I guess I have to start ruling out first... but the cysts don't really say anything about the spotting... then it dawned on me. Did he give you a pap/scrap?

(not that I'm any kind of medical professional.. so take what I say with a grain of salt. I only know from what I've read.)

You're pregnant? Congradulations!!! I have no idea about cervix's when preggo ~ sorry!
(But if he did the scrap with the pap, it's probably just from that, right?)

Pregnancy changes everything. When you become prenant your cervix goes really high and faces towards your back as a way to protect the baby. It also becomes more sensitive due to the extra blood, bleeding from sex is common. If you start to have any cramping or anything then mention it to your dr and stop having sex for a few months. It can cause your cervix to ripen.
