Hi girls! There are some tricks that are used a lot by the “tentantes or trainer”, as we used to say. But then, you must have asked yourself: “is the Changing of Diapers going crazy ??” No, it is totally true. These tests help to detect a possible pregnancy and, also, if menstruation is about to come. In that sense, if you want to be more sure to confirm a possible pregnancy, pregnancy tests are essential. Easy to use and with a clear result, you can purchase your Famivita pregnancy test here on our online store .
Of course, this test is done with a cotton swab, but for what? With the hands well washed and clean, the cotton swab is placed in the vaginal canal and, then, the tone and consistency of the secretion in the cotton tip is checked. Usually, when menstruation is due , or if there is any sign, the swab will come out with a pink, brown and even red tone. But if by chance it comes out white or dry, it is a sign that menstruation is not around. It is a great way to know if your period is going to go down or if you have no sign of it.
Gynecologists usually do this test on patients, but in the office, of course, and it is possible to have an idea whether or not the woman is pregnant by touching the cervix . This procedure requires a lot of care, as the vagina is a sensitive place with easy bacterial proliferation. When and if you do, make sure your hands are completely clean.
Preferably, with nails well trimmed so as not to scratch the wall of the vagina, much less the cervix, use a surgical glove to check the consistency of the cervix at the time of the bath – the best time to check – and squatting.
Cervix and its behavior during the cycle
- Rigid and closed cervix : the cervix has a firmer consistency and the orifice is tightly contracted. This means that progesterone is still high and that you may not be pregnant at that time. It even looks like it’s catching the tip of its nose.
- Soft and open cervix: it means that you may be ovulating, or if it is at the end of the cycle, it may mean that you are going to menstruate soon. Open, yes, because to get pregnant in the fertile period the cervix has to be open for the sperm to pass and, at the end of the cycle, for the blood to come out. The sensation of touching it seems to touch the lip, which is the same consistency.
- High cervix: you have to work hard to find it, because it is higher up
- Lower cervix: you find it as soon as you insert your finger into the vagina
But, there are still two characteristics of the cervix that help to identify the pregnancy: if it is soft and tall, there is a chance of being pregnant; but if you happen to be short and stiff, chances are you’re not pregnant. See, girls, this is not an exact science, but they are techniques that help you discover your body, get to know it more and be able to identify the pregnancy, if you want to get pregnant.
Remembering that everything related to the woman’s intimate part has to be done with great care and delicacy , and that each individual has its particularities. It is worth doing to identify what your cervical cycle looks like and, over time, you will learn to identify.
IMPORTANT: The cervical test is efficient, but for those who are suspicious of pregnancy, it is better to avoid doing it, as it can cause abortion. A lot of awareness and care.
Recurring Questions from Readers!
In order to stop some of the most frequent questions from readers, I have left some answers below. But, even if you are not calm, you can leave your comment below or in the forum that you have here on the portal.
Does the swab test really work? How to interpret, then?
Yes, the swab test works. However, it does not serve to identify pregnancy. The swab test works only as a measure of whether your period is due that day or not. To do the swab test, we must understand that the swab has to come out clean and white. If it comes out white and without bleeding, it is because menstruation is not close to coming. If the swab comes out reddish or brown, it is a sign that menstruation may be coming.
Which secretion is normal in the swab test?
The secretion before and after ovulation can be white, with an ointment aspect. This secretion is called progesterone mucus. Just when a woman enters the fertile period, estrogen can dominate, and then the white or watery mucus can come out in the swab. Right after the fertile period, the white ointment-like mucus returns and stays that way until the next menstruation or, if there is pregnancy, it goes until the end of the pregnancy. If you are tempting, egg white mucus is very precious, as it will help sperm to reach the egg. But if you don’t have consistent mucus, you can use lubricating gels that play the role of mucus, as is the case with FamiGel.In addition to improving vaginal lubrication by increasing pleasure, it controls vaginal pH by increasing the survival of sperm and also helps them to reach the egg more easily. You can purchase FamiGel here in our online store .
How do I find out if I’m pregnant with a cervical test?
The cervix test is great, but it should be done carefully. Doctors have practice and study to take the test and can detect it better than we lay people on the subject. If you know how to take the test and be careful not to hurt yourself, consulting the cervix can be an easier mission, because over time you get practice. There is no rule as to how the uterus can look in pregnancy, each organism reacts in a different way. However, more or less we can say that, for the tentant, how to find out if she is pregnant, just take the texture of the cervix into consideration. So, if he is soft and tall, there is a possibility, yes, of being pregnant if he remains that way until after the date of menstruation comes. Doctors still take volume, too, into consideration to detect pregnancy.
Is there any way to know if you are pregnant by pressing your belly?
Some women may say that they feel a “little ball” in their belly, but it is not really a safe way to confirm the pregnancy. The best way to confirm this is through pharmacy or blood tests in the laboratory.
When to do the swab test?
The swab test should be performed close to the date of menstruation or on the expected day. But it is worth noting that, for those who are suspicious of pregnancy, we do not recommend the performance of this test as the contact of the swab with the cervix can cause abortion.
My cervix is open. What it means?
The open cervix can have two meanings: either the woman is going to menstruate or is in her fertile period. In the fertile period, the cervix opens to receive the sperm. If it’s tempting, it’s the perfect time to date!
What to observe in the swab test?
In the swab test what should be observed is the color of the secretion and consistency that will indicate if menstruation is close or not.

My name is Dr. Alexis Hart I am 38 years old, I am the mother of 3 beautiful children! Different ages, different phases 16 years, 12 years and 7 years. In love with motherhood since always, I found it difficult to make my dreams come true, and also some more after I was already a mother.
Since I imagined myself as a mother, in my thoughts everything seemed to be much easier and simpler than it really was, I expected to get pregnant as soon as I wished, but it wasn’t that simple. The first pregnancy was smooth, but my daughter’s birth was very troubled. Joana was born in 2002 with a weight of 2930kg and 45cm, from a very peaceful cesarean delivery but she had already been born with congenital pneumonia due to a broken bag not treated with antibiotics even before delivery.
