    Arrow My Beautiful Cervix - Amazing photos

    Well, not MY cervix...someone elses

    These are GRAPHIC so don't click if you don't want to see photos of a womans cervix!!



    My Beautiful Cervix

    One full cycle of Cervie Love...

    I am a 25 year old woman who has never given birth.
    My intention with this project was to better understand my cycle and the changes in my cervix throughout the month. As a student midwife, I used this project to help me see how a cervix might look different throughout the cycle in the absence of vaginal infections and to understand speculum exams. You may notice on the right side of some photos, some jagged looking skin, which is the remnants of my hymenal ring.

    Each photo was taken at approx 10:00 pm every day starting the first day of my menstrual cycle. I re-used a plastic speculum (order one here) and macro function of normal digital camera (and a very talented boyfriend with a headlamp). For the duration of this project, we used condoms as our birth control method so as not to introduce semenal fluid into the photoshoot. I also charted my basal body temperature to notice when the post-ovulation rise in progesterone triggered a rise in my body's temperature.

    Interesting but kind of bizarre - not sure that's the sort of familiarity i'd want DP to have with my insides...a bit clinical i mean. Bet they had a good laugh taking them all though.

    I was a bit hesitant to open that link but I have to say WOW. It is such an important part of our body and TBH I don't think I've ever really seen it except for in drawings in my biology textbooks.

    I thought it was incredible! Very very imformative and it really makes some of the things you feel and learn make sense by seeing it.

    I agree, i would love to see that in labour, although i don't know anyone who would want it done to them

    fantastic! how great of them to put it online and share. i have learned more about my CM than ever before. i really needed pictures as reading written descriptions doesn't help me learn or understand as well.
