I know this sounds gross but I need help figuring this out....My husband and I noticed last night when we tried to have sex that my cervix is about 3 inches further down (towards the opening) than where it should be! And I had a LOT of excrutiating pain while he entered me. And I have a LOT of pain in my right lower side now and my urine smells like it's sour or something and have been having a lot of nausea. I know that some women get a prolapsed cervix when they have kids but I have never had any! I am only 23! Can anyone help please?
3 inches down from where it should be? How do you know this? Every woman is different, and I am not sur you are abnormal. But I agree - call the doc. Painful sex is never good, and there might be something else going on.
Also one should know that the cervix changes positions during one's cycle. Normally it is low down into the vagina but as one gets closer to ovulation it moves up into the vagina for a short time. Then after ovulation it moves back down into its original position.
You do need to be checked about the pain.
ALso read the book Taking Charge Of Your Fertility. It will explain better about how the cervix changes during your cycles.

the cervix is usually only around 3 to 4 inches away from the vaginal opening. What happens during sex is that when a woman gets aroused, the cervix will retreat higher into the vagina to allow space for the man to enter. so while men go through a physical change of erection, us women go through a change also, only it is internal. so if you're having a lot of pain, make sure that you are relaxed and aroused before he enters you.
u might also have a UTI or a bladder infection. the sour smelling urine and the pain are symptoms of that. does it burn when u urinate? do you feel the frequent need to pee without actually going?
