Can the cervix open due to constipation?
Sometimes when I'm so constipated, I feel like I have so much pressure in my pelvic area, and in my vagina! It goes away after I am able to have a bowel movement. But, does the pressure from all that stool backed up put pressure on the cervix? Does it cause the cervix to open prematurely? And does straining cause the cervix to open?

Re: Can the cervix open due to constipation?
Nope. You're going to feel the pressure - everything is in the same area - but constipation and straining do not cause dilation of the cervix.
