Gynecology

`Deep cervix`

04/14/2008

Question:

I was told the first time I got a pap smear that I have a deep cervix. I`m not sure what that means and considering I haven`t had sex yet Im worried that its a problem?!?? Will my "deep" cervix affect me when I do decide to have sex or when I choose to get pregnant??

Answer:

I am not sure what your physician meant about a "high cervix", but that wouldn't be related you your being sexually active. I can't see how this would affect either your sexual activity or your ability to get pregnant.
