Hitting Cervix during Sex

Hello there!!

I have yet to set up an appt with my  gyno so I thought I'd ask yall!

During sex this past weekend, it's been really difficult to get into any sort of rhythm because my bf kept hitting my cervix. we didn't do anything new or freaky this time, but it was like my cervix was just sitting waaaay low. I don't know what was going on. So some questions:
  1. Does working out (muscle toning) affect how your cervix sits?
  2. Does hitting your cervix during sex affect your IUD?
  3. Will this go away?
  4. Is this just part of my cycle?

I know that the cervix changes position throughout your cycle. We had that problem a couple weeks ago. I'm not sure about it affecting an IUD, though.

1. I don't know about working out, but arousal and where you are in your ovulatory cycle do affect cervical position.
2. No. It might make your cervix angry, and your cervix might be more sensitive due to a new-ish IUD, but it's not going to cause perforation or anything like that. It can't even move your IUD, which is safely behind walls of muscle of the uterus.
3. Probably. Respondants to this poll seem to think that it at least gets better.
4. Almost certainly.

i've had my IUD for 5 months now. would it still make my cervix angry?

If you check out the poll results, you will see that 19.6% of respondents said it got better in 3-6 months, 9.8% in 7-12 months. So, totally within the range of normal.

I was in the 7-12 group, though I later discovered that an ovarian cyst (which are totally normal and usually non-problematic with the Mirena) had been complicating things for an unknown amount of time. I'd say that if this continues for long enough to rule out ovulation/menstruation-related cervical position, and if the pain continues for longer than a day, then maybe consider an ovarian cyst to be at play. But until then, treat your angry cervix like menstrual cramps: heat, ibuprofen, massage, whatever works for you.

Mine's still angry and my IUD's been MIA for like a year!

Definitely could just be part of your cycle! When I'm tracking my cycle "properly" (i.e. morning temperature, cervical mucous, cervical position, how open the os is, etc), my cervix easily varies between "I can barely reach it with my middle finger" and "one knuckle-depth of my little finger is enough to touch it". So - yes, it's very likely to Just Go Away, but is also likely to recur, because that's how some bodies work :-)
